Python Function Reference

martypy.Marty

Python library to communicate with Marty the Robot V1 and V2 by Robotical

Getting started:
1) Import Marty from the martypy library
2) Create a Marty object that connects the way you want
3) Tell your Marty to dance

from martypy import Marty  
my_marty = Marty("wifi","192.168.0.53")  
my_marty.dance()

The tags 1️⃣ and 2️⃣ indicate when the method is available for Marty V1 1️⃣ and Marty V2 2️⃣

Marty Objects

class Marty(object)

__init__

 | __init__(method: str, locator: str = "", extra_client_types: dict = dict(), blocking: Union[bool, None] = None, *args, **kwargs) -> None

Start a connection to Marty 1️⃣ 2️⃣

For example:

  • Marty("wifi", "192.168.86.53") to connect to Marty via WiFi on IP Address 192.168.0.53
  • Marty("usb", "COM2") on a Windows computer with Marty connected by USB cable to COM2
  • Marty("usb", "/dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART") on a Mac computer with Marty connected by USB cable to /dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART
  • Marty("exp", "/dev/ttyAMA0") on a Raspberry Pi computer with Marty connected by expansion cable to /dev/ttyAMA0

Blocking Mode

Each command that makes Marty move (e.g. walk(), dance(), move_joint(), but also hold_position()) comes with two modes - blocking and non-blocking.

Issuing a command in blocking mode will make your program pause until Marty physically stops moving. Only then the next line of your code will be executed.

In non-blocking mode, each movement command simply tells Marty what to do and returns immediately, meaning that your code will continue to execute while Marty is moving.

Every movement command takes an optional blocking argument that can be used to choose the mode for that call. If you plan to use the same mode all or most of the time, it is better to to use the Marty.set_blocking() method or use the blocking constructor argument. The latter defaults to True (blocking) if not provided.

Arguments:

  • method - method of connecting to Marty - it may be: "usb", "wifi", "socket" (Marty V1) or "exp" (expansion port used to connect to a Raspberry Pi, etc)
  • locator - location to connect to, depending on the method of connection this is the serial port name, network (IP) Address or network name (hostname) of Marty that the computer should use to communicate with Marty. If method is "usb" and there is only a single Marty connected, locator can be left out and the Marty will be found automatically. If multiple Martys are detected, one of them will be chosen arbitrarily and connected to.
  • blocking - Default movement command mode for this Marty instance.
    • True (default): blocking mode
    • False: non-blocking mode

Raises:

  • MartyConfigException if the parameters are invalid
  • MartyConnectException if Marty couldn't be contacted
