Spent the weekend getting Azul and scooter working on 1.0.107.
In my last version of MRL I cleared the serial port buffer with:
#would like to clean out serial buffer
crap = 0
for i in range(1,100):
crap = serial.read()
# pass or break next does not work
which does not work anymore in latest version of mrl
Now I use:
crap = 0
crap = serial.available()
print("cbuf " + str(crap)) #show me how many characters
for i in range(1,crap):
junk = serial.read() #clean out serial buffer
This works a lot better!
I also had trouble getting OpenNI to work again. I removed the mrl folder and the .repo folder under my user. Removed and reinstalled kinect 1.8, OpenNI-windows-x64-2.2, and NITE-Windows-x64-2.2 Installed MRL 1.0.107. By looking at the mrl log I found that SimpleOpenNI64.dll was in the wrong folder. Moving it to the correct folder solved the problem.
now on to new things...life is good
