Fred's progress

Monday March 13 2018:

 I have nearly completed Fred's torso. All of the mechanical parts have been fitted and assembled. His servo sensor pots have been fitted and have extended wires to mate to the servos. Auxilary motors are prepped, tested and wired. They are ready to add to the servos. I have the servos in house and can modify them as soon as I get enough time to work on them.

We all want Yolo - best place for it probably is in OpenCV service as a filter .. 
This means it needs to be supported in JavaCV

Exciting times !


odometer for InMoov cart

In trying to add some self control to my InMoov I work on making it find an ARUCO marker and position itself in front of it using its macanum wheel base.

 

A disadvantage of the mecanum wheel base are the different possible movements and - depending on the surface - quite a lot of slip which makes wheel encoders  a poor solution.
