RoboJ ventures into the forest

SurferJim's picture

It was a nice trial run to get RoboJ into the woods.  Good thing, Robotics has put me into pretty great shape.  His suspension is so damn strong, I'm in awe as he took a real lickin and kept on ticking.   No head popping off, no broken fingers, nada.  Putting steel into the neck was a real charm, make him strong and free from harm :-)   I cannot believe the obstacles he took on, dragging a robo into the woods like a 'foolish moron'  Next time, we go, motos and steering will ease the go....

 


Getting started with the nVidia Jetson Nano and MyRobotlab

nVidia recently announced a whole line of system of a chip boards (similar to the raspi) that help showcase the nVidia GPU.  These boards are based on an ARM 64 bit CPU architecture and coupled with an nVidia GPU.  (The Nano has a 128 core maxwell GPU.)  It's got 4 GB of ram, and uses a standard microSD card for it's main system storage (by default.)


ESP32 > Air Trafic Control Plane Tracking using OpenSkyNetwork API

Here is an early look at a system I am putting together to prewarm me of any special/unusual aircraft that will be flying in my locality.

The system uses a few different protocols via the OpenSkyNetwork.


InMoov with Jetson Nano, Maixduino (Maxheadroom), and ESP32s

Just started printing out the head where I'll utilize a Maixduino, with stereoscopic eyes and a 6+1 mic platform, for its brains.

Further plan to use the Jetson Nano with its 132 cores as a master talking to the Maixduino and ESP32s (as remote local controllers).  One each ESP32 to control, hand/forearm(x2), Leg, Torso. 9DOF processor for stability, and air quality sensors.

Trying to build it so I don't have wires/cables hanging everywhere, all I have to do is route power.

I'm also thinking about an inductive charging system.


Interesting to see other people work

Here's kwatters Harry.py

He splits  the UI apart with undock in the script and uses the Servo mixer .. nifty !
I made undock and dock but never setPosition(x,y) or setSize(width, height) ...
Would be nice to have the new configuration auto-magically generate that script.


EPS32 "Life is Life" (Conways Life)

Here is a test of a flexible P4 RGB LED 64x32 matrix screen.

My trusty "Conway's Life" program was used as the test culprit along with a variant of the

adafruits P3 matrix driver Library  (arduino/mega/etcetc)

ESP32 > 3-Bit & 14-Bit VGA graphics (Sprite Update)

If you need to literally display things out of an ESP32 then well recommended is Bitluni's ESP32Lib library.

14-Bit colour Max Headroom is displayed with the ESP32's 3D Graphics Engine, STL file that has been Low_poly_ed to 5000 Triangles.
