Test Service Fun

GroG's picture

Ahoy ! .. This is a little post about a "work in process" called the Test service.  It function is to test the other services.  Currently, it will check if service page documentation exists, if pyrobotlab/service example files exist and test them, if junit service tests exists and run them.


The Right Code for the Right Service Page !

Yay Worky ! -

Yay .. this is worky closes issue #106


Finger sensors

This will be released after Manticore, because a dedicated service need to be created.

This is just a poc, to talk about what we put inside this service, later.

Thank you @Ash for the fingerstarter !!

 

 

explainations of the poc

The sensor need to be calibrated, foam is unstable, but with calibration it seem worky great.


Make it Worky !

Hello MRL'rs !  This is a request to anyone/everyone.   Let's start testing!  Let's get this release out!  Let's release the Manticore ! 

I've just commited a fix to Tracking .. there was a createPeer instead of startPeer


Servo Attention !!!

Tracking didn't work immediately for me, and digging into a little deeper it looks like quite a few changes have occurred with Servo.  So first we should review what is currently in Servo.

I have listed out every method, its parameters and return type and sorted it - there is a comment section, it is fully editable. - the link in fullscreen view is here


Coming Soon: the Google Assistant Service

This is a preliminary test of the upcoming Google Assistant service, created using mrlpy.

This service is most definitely NOT FINISHED! There are many bugs in the current implementation. The code is on a fork at my github page, with a pull request in progress to merge into the develop branch.


Handy little app for Pi afficionados.

I have found this little app from Adafruit to be really handy when I want to ssh into a Raspberry Pi but can't remember the I.P.  Works on most OSs.

This can be annoying when you have a bunch of them as a few of us do. 

Just click on 'Find my Pi' and it will come up with the I.P. for the near-by Pi.  

Use ethernet if it doesn't already have wifi up. 


Pi-Arduino Integration question

Humanoid's picture

On the subject of Raspberry Pis - for whoever knows about this:

I use two Megas to run my inMoov with MRL and (generally) Windows.  I am adding some wheels to the base and am considering throwing one of my pi family in there just to run the wheels, rather than use an Arduino Nano or similar.  I might even put a pi-zero in the head for some duties. 

BUT- it now occurs to me that, even though we have a Raspberry Pi service in MRL, the pi is a computer not a micro-controller.
