My view for InMoov

dom14's picture

Hi everybody,

This my view for InMoov hardware.

For body, i use one arduino mega + MrlComm for head, torso and 2 arms. I add on serial com 1, Activator. Activator manages differents power supply, manages the mouth with the audio and neo pixel.

For each hand, i use arduino nano + MrlComm. This nano is in each hand. This allows the finger sensors to be as close as possible to the microcontroller without interference.

For the futur, one raspberry pi or mega or due for legs (gyroscope sensor inside).

To resume, i use 4 USB port com.

Remote Access to the Raspberry Pi 3 for NOOB'S

If you haven't already I suggest reading the Installing MRL on a Raspberry Pi3 for NOOB's
This tutorial is a continuation of that tutorial and assumes the raspberry Pi 3 is configured 
the same way as described in the above listed tutorial.

a nice way to get everything in place and mrl running.

my problem with it? whenever I run the bat file it reloads/overwrites my private servo settings in  the InMoov/config folder.

My question therefore:

how can I maintain my own adjusted config files from version to version?

I know, I could create my own folder and do my changes there - but then I can't use start_inmoov.bat anymore.

I could probably set my modified files to "read only" but that makes it a bit complicated for adjustments.

What I would like?

Database Service



wrapper around jdbc access :

This service will be usefull for connecting to databases.

Is it possible to switch off kinect for power safe, then switch ON when it is neccessary ?

This an example, but doesn't work:

That's right, humans can now use and play with the service script at the bottom of every service page.

Mrl not starting

I have changed that BAUD rate, Set Virtual to LeftSide, and uploaded the code from the IDE, but the MRL is not booting beyond this point.

Plantoids almost there! $71.00 to go !

Sorry for the shameless plug, my friends, but if I could ever ask for your aid, it is now.
