Kinect One with MRL under windows

Bretzel_59's picture

OK guys,

 

This is how to use kinect one with Open NI under windows :

just download this driver : 

https://github.com/kaorun55/OpenNI2-Kinect2Driver/blob/master/Bin/OpenNI...

and copy it under this directory : root:\MRL\libraries\native\OpenNI2\Drivers\

 

Launch the Open NI service :


ProgramAB and InMoov

----- UPDATE 2017/05/16 ----

InMoov and ProgramAB can be modeled a bit like a human.  Let's  think of it in terms of the parts.

  • Ear
  • Brain
  • Filter
  • Mouth

Ok,  above we have an ear, an ear recognizes text and publishes that to the brain.  The brain takes that text and produces 2 things. 1. a responses as text and 2. out of band messages ( generic mrl messages , we'll talk about these in other posts.)


My 3D printed omni-directional mechanum wheels for Ghost the inMoov

I've made 4 of these, from ABS, with the Flashforge 3D printer and hope to make them work on my inmoov, 'Ghost'.  


More cool stuff from Festo

Very cool stuff from Festo ..  First time I heard them say ROS (what?) :)

 

 

Simple compressions joints ... very cool


Help ! strange things again about servo moves

moz4r's picture

Before to call an exorcist I will ask you :

I have sometime problems about no worky commands ( rest() moveTo() or autodetach if velocity =-1 )
Problems ocure often at startup.

This is the smallest thing I can use to isolate. When I launch rest() , slider in swing go to the asked position, but no action on servo or virtual servo. ( like the servo is disabled, but servo is electrised)
and if I move the slider a little degree, servo go to good position.

Compadres,

So we all are on the same page, we are headed for release.  This is the "short list" of worky one-click requirements.


Inmoov BOM update / new skeleton parts

moz4r's picture
pushed 2 new things inside Inmoov service :
- rollneck servo Inside head ( usefull to use rollneck+neck+rothead into ik+tracking+vinmoov later )
- Eyelids separated & optional skeleton part
 
I need some confirmation about default pin to use
- hacked rollneck : pin 30 - left
- eyelidsLeft( or both eyes default ) pin 29 - right
- eyelidsRight pin 30 - right
 
Added an option to change hardcoded pins :
ex : i01.startHead(port,12,13,22,24,26,30)

Where we are headed ...

Two interesting talks ....

 

 


Interface Agreement

GroG's picture
Hi,
 
I'd like to get some input on this interface and a little feedback on how to make it stronger or more clear.
 
PinArrayControl
 
Kwatters said the pinEnable(String pin) method in Arduino is confusing. 

Mostly Human ... heh .. right ...

So many short blurbs come to mine.
