14.10 Arduino Oscope & Digital Analyzer

GroG's picture

Digital inputs are now working. I'd do a screenshot of a Arduino Mega 2560 - but only have a Uno compatible board this minute.  The 2560 give you a LOT of lines. Finally seperated Arduino IDE's compiler & uploader from the gui.  Still needs a bit of clean up.  I like the new Rainbow Traces !  Starting to move on to OpenCV updates !  So much has changed.....


14.9 - Compile and Upload Arduino Sketches Programmatically

GroG's picture

With this short Jython script, an Arduino service is created and a Arduino sketch is compiled then uploaded to the microcontroller.  In this case the sketch is MRLComm which allows communication between MRL and Arduio, but other sketches could be loaded too, depending on the state of the Borg :)

 


New 14.9 Jython IDE

Here's a preview..  Complete with Java & Jython consoles, plus lovely open, save, restart and execute buttons.  I'll be looking into autocompletion and caret positioning after Jython errors....

New 14.9 Arduino GUI overhaul

admin's picture

Whoa.. it all became clear now.  The folks who created the first Arduino IDE, gutted Processing and changed the "export to applet" to compile & upload to an Arduino board.  That is why there are so many Java file references and other applet related amalgams.  Time to hack & stich it up more !

 Here the soccor game is developing.  
 It is using AJAX & JSON to accept browser messages.
 There is an embedded flash video feed (no special
  plugin required !)

Service Help Pages

admin's picture

I'm Creating new Content-Type "Service" which should be the ultimate source for info, examples, & help regarding MRL Services.

I added a required Icon which will be the graphical depiction of the Service. Currently they are displaying on Android, but I have not put them in the Swing gui (yet).. 

Additional form fields I can think of are :

Purpose
Tags
Related
Dependencies
Examples (with example code in Python)

and of course better Descriptions :)


Micro2440 SDK Board

admin's picture

The Micro2440 SDK Board is a development board for the FriendlyArm Micro2440.  This little board can run Linux.  It comes with FriendlyArms custom compiled kernel, but other forms of Linux can run on it too (Ubuntu & Fedora).  Santa was kind enough to send be the development board and a Micro2440 to experiment with.

Here is my current setup:

Swarm Brain #1

There it is..  a BBB + BT.  Reprogrammed it to talk at 57600 baud.  I can connect to it from my Computer or Phone.   
Good little swarm brain.  Now, got to make a few more... ;)
