1. Overview

This tutorial will help you get started programming the AVR microcontroller on an Orangutan robot controller or 3pi robot under Windows using Atmel’s older AVR Studio 4 IDE. This guide is mainly designed for people who want to use the Pololu USB AVR Programmer and the Pololu AVR C/C++ Library but could still be useful to other people.

AVR Studio 4 is old and no longer supported by Atmel. We recommend using the new Atmel Studio 6 and following the tutorial in the Pololu AVR Programming Quick Start Guide.
