Servos Installed :- MRL>>>Propeller>>> Flexy-Flexy

Gareth's picture

Last Hurdle....Kinda......Multiple Servos now working from MRL >>> Propeller

Also created a universal Propeller Board...... one that is easy to fit things too.....


Bottom Left adjustable power Regulator ... for servos (5V-6V) underneath is a 3.3V regulator(Hidden)

Middle Left ... FTDI serial link

16 pin chip is an 8 Channel 12 bit ADC.

Gyro x,y,z on i2c bus ......MRL>Propeller>MRL

I have activated an i2c OBJ on my Propeller system making it possible for MRL to read any i2c device

..... As test the data you see here is from a Wii MotionPlus 3 axis Gyro... as you can see i got a bit carried away at the end of the trace... its pretty responsive.....YaY...

(Elves put on helmets fearing they are to go airbourne)

I have dissassembled the Wiis circuit board out and installed it into my Plastic egg system...

MRL>Propeller>MRL using MCP3208 chip 8 channel 12bit .....reading my pulse.....

How is this for a medical instrument.....

Good progress with the Propeller>MRL linking.... just routing single elements at the moment... just to open up the gate ways..

MRL > Parallax Propeller (or any MCU other than Atmel)

Gareth's picture

For anyone interested in attaching different processors to MRL you will need to understand the serial data flow commands.... knowing these there is no reason to be constrained to only using Atmel type chips.

In my case I am coding a Parallax Propeller to replace the Arduino ....

The Idea is to get the Propeller to Emulate an Atmel chip .... this means that all the other awsome services written for MRL will be transparent and theoretically work. .... (with more speed)

All attached to MRL .... Tnx GroG .....

Working well and the Servo limits are a great help YAY
