Good evening Dave.
Long time ago I have installed this sensor but never used it in interraction with other services.
Don't know if the method I used is a good method but worky great !

this is the code about pir and timer


viewing your virtual inMoov in 3d implemented in inMoov service

calamity's picture

I add the possibility to view a virtual 3d InMoov from the inMoov service.

To view it, you have to add in your inMoov script

i01.startVinMoov()

and

i01.stopVinMoov()

to stop viewing it.

The 3d model should mimic what your real inMoov is doing.
The model probably still needs some adjustment but is looking good.
The fingers and eyes are not working yet


I Love Serializing

Not that kind of Cereal.  
Serializing is when you squish information into a tiny stream of 1s and 0s.  The great thing about it, is it allows you to send this information over little pipes and wires !   You can move information around. You can make things change remotely. What are we waiting for ?


Moving 3D model with JMonkey in MRL

Last week I manage to get a 3d model of InMoov taking the position in synch of my InMoov. So let me explain how I did it

I start with the VinMoov model that Gareth post some time ago. Unfortunatly, I did not manage to be able to move it's armature (or did not found how to do). So I try something else

in Blender, I disasemble the VinMoov and saved each robot part that represent my DHLink in IK individually. I modify the part slightly so the origin of the part (rotation point) is at 0,0,0. I then export the part using OGRExml exporter.


DIY Gamecontroller / Joystick

Today I tested if it ws possible to use the small esp8266-01 together with two i2c boards to make a gamepad. It worked pretty well, except that I need to figure out why the response is slow. Probably due to the rest API, but it could also be some waiting for the A/D conversion. 

Things are looking up

I had some problems and burned out an omo servo a while back. It was locked up so that meant I had to take the whole chest apart. Major hassel so I was unmotivated and didn't work on it. 

I mentioned it in the shoutboox and Mats gave me a suggestion. Don't just replace it but do an upgrade. Make something better in the process so it is moving ahead in stead of just reachieving what I already had.

 


Testing uploading MRLComm from new Swing GUI on Windows

Hi GroG

This is the error I get. The Arduino IDE shows the spash screen and then stops with this message:

 


IntegratedMovement service visualized with jmonkey

edit

I have replace the drawing with mesh. I still have to do some adjustment as the movement seem to be a bit offset but progressing

 

 


SwingGui updates... Search For Service - cuz time is precious :)

GroG's picture

We want to find our service quick !  So many services now, who has time to scroll ?
Now in the SwingGui - Search !  (honestly should have done this years ago ;)


Servo Joystick & Arduino seem to work over a remote connection now (mostly) - BoardInfo & DeviceSummary were not serializable (fixed)


Nixie Tube Clock

I have been looking for a fitting clock to match with a Mongolian shelving unit,

it needed to be retro so no option...... Nixie Tubes !!!.
