This section describes the steps needed to successfully update the software version of the MIRAI controller. Please get in touch with Micropsi Industries service team to get the latest software release for the update.
- Please use a USB drive and format it with FAT32 (ideally 16GB and larger), and preferably use two separate USB drives, first for creating a backup of your skills, and the second for the software update process.
- Before you proceed to update the software, please create a backup of the current skills.
- To proceed with the software update, download the software file from the link sent to you from the Micropsi Industries service team.
- Copy the software file onto your (second) USB drive.
- Turn on the MIRAI controller and wait for the second beep, signaling that the system is ready.
- In the Robot Training app, tap ‘Update’, under the Software update section in Service Support (left menu). Under certain circumstances an internet connection is required for the update process.
Insert the USB stick with the update file into the USB port of your box. Make sure the software update file is placed in the root directory of the USB. Tap ‘Next’.
It is highly recommended that you create a backup of your skills. The backup will be saved on the USB drive you have plugged in the MIRAI controller box. Tap on ‘Create backup’. Tap ‘Next’.
