Triplex – gamepad control

Este artigo é a parte 3 de 3 da série  Triplex

Alexandre from PLUG asked for a way to control Triplex with a gamepad.

There is a already a good tutorial at ev3dev site made by Anton Vanhoucke so I just post the particular settings for my gamepad, a “Terios T3”-like Bluetooth gamepad.

To pair it to EV3 (running ev3dev) we need to turn Bluetooth ON in the Display Menus (‘brickman’).

We put it in pairable mode by pressing “Home” and “X” until it starts blinking. Then from command line we run bluetoothctl and:

agent on
default-agent
scan on
...
pair 58:00:8E:83:1B:8C
trust 58:00:8E:83:1B:8C
connect 58:00:8E:83:1B:8C
...
Connection successful
exit

The gamepad LEDs should stop blinking and one of the LEDs should stay ON. To change between gamepad mode and keyboard+mouse mode we press HOME+X or HOME+A/B/Y.

After a successful connection, we see something like this in dmesg:

[ 520.522776] Bluetooth: HIDP (Human Interface Emulation) ver 1.2
[ 520.522905] Bluetooth: HIDP socket layer initialized
[ 522.148994] hid-generic 0005:1949:0402.0001: unknown main item tag 0x0

The name (‘Bluetooth Gamepad’) is important for our python script.

This is the script I use – a small but important part of it is still based on Anton Vanhoucke’ script.
NOTE: the script lost indents when I copy&pasted it to WordPress. Sorry.
