Detached Service Tabs Now Have Memory

GroG's picture

If your system has many parts, it is sometimes nice to detach and arrange them in the most convient way depending on how your working.  As an example the InMoov service may have up to 22 servos.  When capturing gestures its nice to have al lthe relevant service tabs arranged in such a way that gestures can be tweaked and code can be modified.


Arduino Digital Pin Debounce And Digital Trigger

GroG's picture

 

Debounce

Implemented digital pin debounce based on this . It puts in a 50 ms wait after a state change on a digital line.  Needs testing. 

It should help with encoders, bumpers, and other bouncy switches although remember boys & girls, you should always try to clean your signal at the source :)

Digital Trigger Only


Bleeding Edge

GroG's picture

The best way to get involved, stay current and even push MyRobotLab development is to uh. . .get a little bloody.  Figuratively that is.

Most people (me included) tend to look for "stable" software releases.  It's "done."  Won't be changing for a while.  Things probably work best and will keep working.

Uh. . .with MyRobotLab, the only one of those that you can really depend on is "Won't be changing for a while."

Jython Editor - Becomes Multi-Page

GroG's picture

Something I've wanted for a while is multi-paged Jython editor ... Viola ... (it's still in development - but getting closed to being checked in) 

Now you can have an initialization script in one file, and a State machine in another :)

We can copy paste, from one file to another..

But wait .. There's MORE !


Houston Service

javadoc

Houston is a robot service based on DancesWithRobot's (DWR)  Houston project.  Houston is on the bleeding edge of development.

Houston consists of the following sub services :

Examples:

[[service/Houston.py]]

The battle to retake OpenCV (Or MyRobotLab finds my face)

The thing that I really REALLY like about MyRobotLab, is that GroG has taken really difficult things like speech recognition and vision processing and made it "monkey pushes the button" easy.


Further adventures in Xtion

Pioneers are the guys with the arrows in their backs.  GroG can probably tell you all about that.


Windows 7 (64 bit) Arduino Service Strangeness - SOLVED

GroG's picture

 

Here I'll go over several issues I have found with the Arduino service & WIndows 7 (64 bit)

FTDI Driver strangeness & Jumpy Oscope

After updating my driver at some point (or unknowingly being updated by Windows) I noticed the Arduino Oscope behaving very strangly.  When I selected a trace on the Arduino to display, the trace line would freeze, then flash quick, then pause, then flash - nothing like the smooth behavior it had previosly.
