Roadmap for Artificial Intelligence

nomasfilms asked a great question

"Has anyone interfaced MyRobotLab


Sample tutorial

My purpose is to just become more familiar with MRL.

I was trying to replicate the sample tutorial that you have and seem to be having some trouble.

I am interested in getting the speech aspect working for a simple project of face recognition and a comment of recognition.

as for right now though I would just like to get the example working.

Here is a screen shot of what I have done.

OpenCV 2.4.3 update

Yay ! - LKOptical tracking filter tracking 30 points simultaneously !   The Tracking service can proceed .... Wooh .. about time !  Still need to write a bug up for JavaCV, but the filter works around it.

Added an ouput panel - which allows recording of a video stream or individual frames from the output stream.


Detached Service Tabs Now Have Memory

If your system has many parts, it is sometimes nice to detach and arrange them in the most convient way depending on how your working.  As an example the InMoov service may have up to 22 servos.  When capturing gestures its nice to have al lthe relevant service tabs arranged in such a way that gestures can be tweaked and code can be modified.


Arduino Digital Pin Debounce And Digital Trigger

Debounce

Implemented digital pin debounce based on this . It puts in a 50 ms wait after a state change on a digital line.  Needs testing. 

It should help with encoders, bumpers, and other bouncy switches although remember boys & girls, you should always try to clean your signal at the source :)

Digital Trigger Only


Dynamic Robot Simulators

Update : Radom Mapper ! - it works !  

The cause and effect :  
Arduino wire changes state  (Bumper) ------  sends an  event to Python --------->  Makes a random wall !


Jython Editor - Becomes Multi-Page

Something I've wanted for a while is multi-paged Jython editor ... Viola ... (it's still in development - but getting closed to being checked in) 

Now you can have an initialization script in one file, and a State machine in another :)

We can copy paste, from one file to another..

But wait .. There's MORE !


The battle to retake OpenCV (Or MyRobotLab finds my face)

The thing that I really REALLY like about MyRobotLab, is that GroG has taken really difficult things like speech recognition and vision processing and made it "monkey pushes the button" easy.
