RoboSapien V2 IR Codes (for WowWee toys after RSV1)

The V2 modulation scheme is similar to the RoboSapien V1 IR Codes, but longer. The IR Carrier is 39.2kHz. Data is modulated using a space coded signal with 12 data bits (data clock is 1200Hz, but actual data rate varies depending on the data). The V1 format is only 8 data bits.

For modulating the signals yourself, the signal looks something like this:

Timing based on 1/1200 second clock (~.833ms)
Signal is normally high (idle, no IR).
Start: signal goes low for 8/1200 sec.
Data bits: for each of 12 data bits, space encoded signal depending on bit value
    Sends the most significant data bit first
    If the data bit is 0: signal goes high for 1/1200 sec, and low for 1/1200 sec.
    If the data bit is 1: signal goes high for 4/1200 sec, and low for 1/1200 sec.
When completed, signal goes high again.
No explicit stop bit. Minimal between signals is not known.

The first 4 bits (prefix nibble) indicate the robot model:

NOTES:

Tricky IR

"Laser"

The "laser" feature uses the bottom IR LED on the controller to send out a very slowly modulated signal.
The carrier frequency is also 39.2kHz (or 40kHz give or take). Signal is normally off. When you press the "laser" button: IR goes on for ~20ms, followed by ~200ms sec of idle, and then repeats. While in this mode, other IR signals are jammed (eg: obstacle avoidance is disabled). The green light/LED is for aiming purposes so you can see where the remote is aiming. You can cover up the green light and it will still track the IR signal (from the bottom IR LED, the one inside the black housing).

Interactions

DISCLAIMER: I don't have the extra robots to record their controller codes, or the full interactions. Here are the starting part of the interaction modes (ie. what you can confirm with a single V2 robot).

These may be exploited in a very limited fashion for other things.

PSP RoboSapienV2 Remote

The PSP IR remote sample can be easily adapted to use these codes (some programming required). The RSV2 version was never finished due to lack of interest. Also, because of all the strange shift states, the regular remote works better most of the time.
If interested and you have a Homebrew capable PSP, check out the V1 released program here.
