FPGA Demo Boards

Gareth mentioned this in the shoutbox - looks interesting - didn't want it to fall of the shoutbox conveyor belt

The idea of programming one of these things looks potentially rewarding, but at the same time hurts my wee head :P

Hello MRL'ians and InMoov Nation.

This is a request for help.  


Servo Analysis - Baseline Test

GroG's picture

This post is to examine the different ways in which a servo can be controlled through myrobotlab, and some of their limitations and advantages of the different speed implementations.  And more importantly, it is to start information regarding the Baseline Test for Servos.


Starting Python (and / or any other Service or Script on startup)

GroG's picture

bhouston asked if it was possilbe to start with Python service automatically on startup. I'll be including bat files which do this again shortly, but in the interim I'll show you how to create your own.

From the command line you can start any service(s) in addition you can actually invoke any command too... You could automatically run a script, which potentially is quite powerful.


NeoPixel

This article is to collect information regarding the very cool NeoPixel.
I would like to create a NeoPixel service, but some of the libraries require the whole Arduino to work properly (rather a heavy sacrifice)

Try this Neo

trigPin = 7
echoPin = 8
 
arduino = Runtime.createAndStart("arduino", "Arduino")
arduino.connect("COM15")
sr04 = Runtime.createAndStart("sr04", "UltrasonicSensor")
 
sr04.attach(arduino, trigPin, echoPin)

A quick test with MRL 1.0.18 (from github!) - WebGUI ----> Python function

GroG's picture

Hi All,
This is a quick test of the new github release & some long awated functionality.
We want to call a Python function from the webgui using a single URL - this way we could save it as a bookmark or on our phones webrowser and activate it whenever we want.
