BlueTooth elves choose "BlueTeeth"

Time of Flight meets BlueTooth.....

Extensive testing with WiFi mesh networks proved to be not the way to go for this project... timing issues killed the progress.

Exit Wifi Mesh network goblins...... YAY

Enter the BlueTeethed Elves ....... YAY

The ESP32 has up its sleeve BlueTooth capabilities, it was a simple job to reconvert the data packets.

Hi, this is not directly about MyRobotlab but the goal of the project is the creation of new Material for our beloved Robots, so I hope to get some help here. And my last attempt ended with a big bunch of blue expensive smoke.


For MaVo

Hi MaVo, this was an Arduino Uno - I had some problems with subscribing to publishPin, but this worked for my setup.  I just enabled pin 14 which is an analog pin and a stream of values became accessable.

 

You should be able to add or remove from streaming array of PinData with more enables or disables

Sparse Feature Optical Flow

GroG's picture

I've added "OpticalFlow" filter to OpenCV (worke branch), and here seeing throuhg work-e's kinect eye - you can see worke-e turning left ... or was it right ? :) 

So to make this useful for collision avoidance, some work will need to be put into it.  Like describing the direction vector.  Also some semi-intelligent pruning of data. 

It starts by getting good features to track. Which itself has a few parameters to tweak.


Lloyd, an evolved InMoov for Telepresence and Augmented Reality

It's been a goal of mine(ours?) for a long time to have a proper telepresent InMoov.  I believe Lloyd is that.  There is a new branch of MyRobotLab called "lloyd" based off the develop branch.  This is where I'll be continuing work on my customizations without breaking horribly things that are already working.


Audio delay

MikeG's picture

  Alex (nee Willie nee fred), has decided to grieve me. when he talks the audio is not audible until one or two seconds after it starts. Things like " I asked another robot" come out as "another robot".

  I havae no idea why there is a delay. If you do please let me know. This is irritating.

 

  Thanks
