Surprise!!! Is this an Easter Egg?

   This morning as I was puttering around with neatening up where the wires run and mounting the Nano that runs the Neopixel I had just finished up and I asked Fred how he felt. This is what happened...

 


New style Config for MRL, custom robots, and InMoov2

I wanted to start a conversation about how to structure the configuration for a robot running MyRobotLab.

Having a consistent configuration that is flexible that defines the services that are started and how they attach to each other would be a great starting place.  


Fred is assembled.

So Fred-X is now fully assembled. Sort of.


Code for CUI AMT203 absolute encoder

With my leg project, I will use absolute encoder instead of potentiometers. During my research, I've found an interesting "cheap" encoder from CUI. The AMT-203. Arduino can "speak" with it by the use of the SPI bus.

 

I've found a sample code which is working for me. 

It comes from the arduino forum :

  Fred-X's middle is finished... Sort of.

I have completed the mechanical assembly.  I have discovered that if I change the state of configuration file 9 Neopixel from False to True that it causes the software to run as though there were some process eating up 99 % of the system resources. 

  I recommend not trying to run a NeoPixel ring unless you have a fix for this. I am not at that point yet.

  As soon as I get Fred's right leg finished I eill be standing him on his own legs.
