Dynamic Gui Generated based on Meta-Data

GroG's picture

These buttons were dynamically created from meta data in the WorkE robot service.  More complex services usually contain meta data describing peers.  Meta data is just a plan or design on what services a robot knows how to create and attach to.  The buttons are like an instruction manual.


There's Physics Out There !

I believe I've loaded JBullet Physics into our JMonkeyEngine simulator service ...
Cool, I think those cubes and ball are waiting to be thrown around or kicked - Just got to figure out how to do it ...

I've just started to refactor and clean up the JMonkeyEngine service ... is very nice you don't need a Servo controller to make servo move in the simulator anymore (YAY!!!)

We Like Stop Buttons !

Astro - sorry for the tragic end of your servo :(

I can tell you the sweep could not be stopped, now it can with build 191 and I've added a stop button which "should" stop the servo from any movement.


Servo Bug Hunt - Mop Up

What's Left ?

  • if pr for previous fix is worky - ServoTest should be updated to lock it in place (disable => stop() & detachPin() )
  • no enable after attach  -  this may be correct in "general" but not for re-sync ???
  • TimerEncoder cleanup ?
  • setMaxVelocity / setMaxSpeed ?

Bug Hunt - #2 My Disabled Servo Made Wild Movements Next Move !

GroG's picture

 

I already fixed a bug Gael pointed out regarding autoDisable happening too soon in a long move. But, this bug flushed out another bug, I call it "Disable to Crazy Move".

It was easier to reproduce when the autoDisable bug was still causing problems, but you can reproduce it currently by doing the following.

1. Create a long move .. This can be done by :
2. Setup an Arduino & Servo
3. Set speed to 10
4. Start the servo at 0 move it to 180
5.  While the servo is moving - disable it.


Notification Plans ?

Hi Astro.
I was wondering if there were plans for this Notifications area - and I guess I was trying to figure out if I incorrectly merged.   Yesterday we managed to merge webgui_work and meta branches into develop.  Which is 100s of changes from different people into the soup pot (develop).  I am wondering if I spilt some soup in the process ?


Super Servo Jam

Wow ! ... what a huge bunch of fixes and cleanup kwatters and I put into Servo.  Really great having 2+ sets of eyes to get things done right !

This is a quick post to address a few minor remaining items.


Moving JMonkey Simulator's Camera

JMonkey Simulator has a big Scene Graph.  This is like a tree with all the objects defined with names.


Localization in MyRobotLab

GroG's picture

In MyRobotLab you can set the Locale for all services in the Runtime service panel. Or in Python with runtime.setLocale(code)  where code is "en-US, fr, it-IT or any valid locale code.

MyRobotLab, we support having different translations for certain info , error, and status types of messages in myrobotlab.
