Installing MRL on a Raspberry Pi 3 for NOOB's

Ray.Edgley's picture
New Out Of Box (NOOB) is a term used for very new beginners.
We have all been there, and with the alittle help, we learn all the time.
 
This set of instruction is for the new user with very little or no experience with the Raspberry Pi.
Most seasoned experimenters/developers will find these instruction too simple and goes into detail they do not need.

Fred InMoov is built using two Raspberry Pi 3 with a planned third one to be installed.

Servo Control is done using a PCA9685 Servo Driver in the form of a raspberry Pi Hat from Adafruit Industries located on the top of top moths RPi named Fred_1, This is then conneted to 3 other PCA9685 Servo Driver as stand alone boards, one located on the back, and one in each bicep.

Located in each forearm is a ADS1115_16B_4CH_I2C_ADC again from adafruit industries. This allows for 4 of the 5 finger pressure sensors to be monitored.
