Bonjour a tous,
je reviens sur ce sujet pour utiliser le Kinect360 avec MyrobotLab sous linux ubuntu64.
J'ai un mrl qui tourne V1.0.2693 avec lequel tous fonctionne (bras torse reconnaissance vocal etc..), mais je n'arrive toujours pas a utiliser le kinect avec OPENNI.
J'ai installé drivers Kinect , NITE , OPENNI (V1 et V2), j'arrive avec les examples a utliiser le kinect et faire de la reconnaissance, mais pas dans MRL.

Back in February I back a Kickstarter campaign for what was described as a Single Board Computer with the heart of a Mac Book For the level I supported this set me back around the AU$500.  The campaign was successful, however production had a number of delays,  the result was Thursday 9th of Nov, I received a package containing my brand new Latte Panda Alpha.  Interestingly enough the site that was supposed to show tracking info when it was shipped still did not list that it had been shipped.

changing gestures without a complete restart

Hi all, my build continues.

I have now reached a usable stage and am using the robot for my political campaign here in Australia.

However I have a couple of questions you may be able to help me with.

1. I can't work out how to add a new gesture file.

I can create one by modifying an existing gesture but can't make it be recognised by mrl so I have been just modifying the "about" gesture and using that.

2. Can I easily restart MRL to have the modified file take effect without restarting the whole robot?

standard servos hacked to provide feedback

juerg's picture

Hi folks

found these instructions to add feedback from a standard servo.

wanted to know whether anybody has already given it a try and wouldn't it be nice to actually get a feedback where the servo is and not simply have to assume that the servo moved as requested?

would need extension of the servo service to allow for specifying feedback and do the math?

and the greatest thing is that it only requires a bit of hacking with zero costs?
