Small but relevant success.  I managed to connect all  the pieces together and get the Adafruit 16 channel Servo test to work with 1 servo.  Now to borg it into MRL :)

Stupid Newbie Question - Simple way to get keyboard input to a python script

bytemedwb's picture


   I am working on some demonstration scripts for my InMoov robotic hand.  Having not had good success with voice input I wanted to create a simple python script that would call some movement routines.

When I tried the standard: python raw_input('Enter Command: ')   approach

I get the following:

File "<string>", line 2, in <module>

FindHuman Service


Attempts to find humans through OpenCV facedetect. Utilizes a pan / tilt kit and LKOptical track points to track human after detection.



So far you have to use Eclipse and change the file in the service directory to set your Arduino pin and com port settings, etc. Then start it like you would any other MRL Service.



Serial Communication with Arduino?

I feel like this is a dumb question, but I am going to ask it anyway.

I have been playing around with the vision examples that come with MRL. These are very cool and work well. The OpenCV GUI is very nice and friendly. It is what brought me to MRL. Playing with, I see that that the location and size of the box is printed to the python window. My question is this, how would one send this data across a serial port?
