The first time you connect your computer to your Fusion Robot, you may be required to provide a security key. This security key will be supplied by Modern Robotics Inc. as part of your Fusion kit. At the time of writing (October 2018), this key is mrifusion. It can be seen inside the lid of the Fusion System Controller Box that comes with your Fusion kit.
The video below shows how to use Fusion’s inbuilt Wi-Fi to link a Fusion Robot to a computer. In this example, the computer is a Windows 10 PC.
Modern Robotics also have information about connecting your computer to your Fusion Robot via Macintosh, via Linux, via iOS and via Android. You may need the SSID of your Fusion Robot, which can be found here.
This ability to be able to operate without a connection to the Internet can be a major advantage when the Internet connection is a problem, either because of slow Internet speed or because the Internet is simply not available in the student workplace. It can also be an advantage when a school is concerned that the student may have contact with some of the less desirable content on the Internet, and therefore has banned connections between student computers in the school, and the Internet. In both these circumstances, the Fusion robot can be used and programmed independent of any Internet access.
