Arduino Digital Pin Debounce And Digital Trigger

GroG's picture

 

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.


Further adventures in Xtion

Pioneers are the guys with the arrows in their backs.  GroG can probably tell you all about that.


Windows 7 (64 bit) Arduino Service Strangeness - SOLVED

GroG's picture

 

Here I'll go over several issues I have found with the Arduino service & WIndows 7 (64 bit)

FTDI Driver strangeness & Jumpy Oscope

After updating my driver at some point (or unknowingly being updated by Windows) I noticed the Arduino Oscope behaving very strangly.  When I selected a trace on the Arduino to display, the trace line would freeze, then flash quick, then pause, then flash - nothing like the smooth behavior it had previosly.


Direct Serial test

Schlick's picture

Hey,

I have x64 bit OS running on one of the builds you have on the bleeding edge.

I am not sure if my setup is fully functional.... but I get it to work most often and sometimes have to kill the java process manually to get it to release the serial port....

I'm having fun with this and learning a little more each day.

My question is how can I talk to the Arduino with a direct serial connection via  realterm or equivalent terminal when running the arduinoserialbare.pde on the microcontroller.
