Raspi + MRL + OpenCV (communal - pre - tutorial)

This is a pre-tutorial post - to get parts together and organize the "real" Tutorial

Step 1 - Load the RasPi with the latest Wheezy Rasparian image.

Ok, so this is still possible with buld 1943

I pulled this of my Pi with the video streamer...

Tutorial for InMoov Finger Starter


This tutorial is based on an older version of My Robot Lab (1695) and not the current bleeding edge. You can have more than one version MRL installed/unzipped on your computer.







Python complains about finding carriage returns when it expects newlines

If I try to run the Tracking.minimal.py example in .../Python/examples on my fedora machine I get the followinf error:

Inside InMoov's Head

InMoov's head ... lots of spagetti in there :)
Anyway - there seems to be some issues with mouth control and the jaw servo - there were too many services and not enough hardware ...

Hopefully its ironed out.   I think there needs to be another way to display all this stuff (preferrably on the web) so we can see all the routes and messages.  This seems a bit crowded and it doesn't even have the left and right arms/hands/fingers.

First Test OpenCV with MRL services

My first test successfully ... all with the help of the developers of the MRL. 
As you can see .. More than 10 000 frames .. all that to properly configure the Pan / Tilt hahah
I can only thank .. and let's work!

OK! its time to get the eyes moving but i can't understand how?

Saymon asked if the Raspberry Pi module was compatible with MRL. By "compatible" I believe what he is asking is, "Is the Raspberry Pi module compatible with the OpenCV service of MRL".  The answer is no. OpenCV only supports cameras which support V4L (video for Linux) . 

To add to the confusion there is two interfaces for Linux V4L and newer not necessarily compatible V4L2.
