Trying to figure out MRL ASAP

chuckfletcher's picture

I've got my inmoov 95% built and ready to animate it. 

I've tried MRL on OSX, Ubuntu 13.4 (VMWARE) and Windows8 (VMWare), but not having any luck getting any of them to work.

My preference is OS X, but I'll live with whatever works. I have several arduinos and 2 adafruit 16 port serial boards ready to go.

I've made a little script for move my animatronic head with a joystick ( see attachement ) . It work well but for move the eyes, i must press the joystick's arrows for each degree . How must i do for make they move until i release the button ? 

Adding new controllers?

Grinanbarrett's picture

So I am wondering if I have to use java to add a new motor controller?

I am using a dagu 4 motor controller that uses two inputs for each motor, pwm and direction, and it also offers encoders and current sensing for each motor

Just curious as to how to add a new controller.

Face Tracking

Here is my face tracking so far. Uses the OpenCV and Serial services. The code used in this video is HERE.

Adding new arduino boards?

Grinanbarrett's picture

I was wondering how hard it is to add new arduino boards to the mrl arduino service.

I am using an UNO right now, but only because I can't use the Modern Device RbbLeo, which is an arduino compatible Leonardo board.

Is this something that's hard to do?

Wireless piano using a Ultrasonic Ping Sensor and JFugue Service :D

Alessandruino's picture

Hi :D this is my latest project...a wirless piano using an Ultrasonic ping sensor hooked to an Arduino...

Ultrasonic Ping Sensor->Arduino->Serial->MRL->JFugue-> Musical Note

Sensor measure how far is my hand and send distance in cm over serial connection using Arduino...

MRL receive the distance using serial service and if the hand is at less than 20 cm from the sensor, play a 'A' musical note using JFugue service

strange problem with MRL

Grinanbarrett's picture

Ok, I have succesfully used MRL on my desktop computer, and now I am trying to get it loaded and running on a netbook that I plan on using MRL with to power my bot. 

I am having a strange problem..  I can get MRL started, after an install of the latest java SDK, but, when I try to add new services i can't, See my screen shot that i have attached.
