InMoov command confirmation "bypass"

bhouston's picture

Hi Grog,

Is it possible to have a command within the InMoov script that does not need to be confirmed before the program carries out the command?

One command that I would like to create would be "STOP", so that if the robot is heading for trouble I can stop it's motion very quickly.

Thanks,

Bob

 


Resurrecting Chumby as a master robot controller

Ro-Bot-X's picture

I have an old Chumby One that I wanted to use as a robot controller. GroG installed MRL on a USB stick and I had an external USB hub to connect the stick, the webcam, the Arduino and a Roomba interface. I'm trying to get rid of the USB hub, so here is the new setup:

- MRL on a partition directly on a larger uSD card in Chumby

- Arduino moved from USB-FTDI to hardware serial interface

- webcam directly on the USB port

- no more Roomba, different robot hardware


My RepStrap 3D Printer...

May 2014 update: Nowadays I perfected the printer settings and upgraded to latest Marlin firmware. I also began to use blue painter's tape which helps in sticking of the first layer better. I added a USB led light for night printing. While test printing I happened to own many miniature garden ornaments...

Andrew Davidson has a new book out which utilizes JavaCV and it looks like he covers a variety of topics. In the past I have found his writing entertaing, and backed by small, concise, and working code examples.
