AutoComplete & Jython script through recording

Made progress in both these areas (also bug /dev/ttyACM issue with Mega on Linux is fixed)

Autocompletion now returns relevant functions after CTRL+SPACE

MRL on Linux with Arduino Uno or Mega

GroG's picture

MRL currently uses create-labs libraries to interface with serial info - They did a great job of normalizing the Java and doing a full build of 6 types (windows 64/32, Linux 64/32 & Mac 64/32)

Unfortunately the current Jar is filtering out ttyACMx which is the identifier for serial devices for Arduino Uno & Mega..

A easy work-around is to make a symbolic link like this :

ln -s /dev/ttyACM0 /dev/ttyUSB0 

you might need to chown or chmod the new link to give it the appropriate permissions

Joystick / Gamepad GUI interface preview

The new Joystick service will use JInput & be supported on Windows, Linux & Mac.  It will support Joysticks, Gamepads & Rumblers.  It will have configurable transforms, so you can send the output of an axis directly to an Arduino, Motor shield, or Servo ....

Up to 12 buttons are supported and each button event can be routed to another service...

More to come !


Color Tracking In MRL using OpenCV, Jython, and Arduino Services

michael96_27's picture

Hi guys! :)

I have a project that uses arduino and pan/tilt servos to track a desired color. With the use of a camera and myrobotlab, this project slowly come to life. I and with the help of GroG, are working on it to make it possible. However, it's not yet done and the project is still under progress. Here's some of the highlights of the project. Comments and Suggestions will be greatly appreciated :)

First, you need to download MRL:

Arduino Service - almost like "real" software ....

"Finally"...  presenting "The Arduino Service - reloaded (again)" -  it's not ready for "prime time" , but it's starting to come together.  It would be great if I could get some testing & feedback..  with enough updates I'm hoping it might even be useful :)

If your interested,
here are the steps to get started in graphic detail..

MyRobotLab - Roomba

14.10 Arduino Oscope & Digital Analyzer

Digital inputs are now working. I'd do a screenshot of a Arduino Mega 2560 - but only have a Uno compatible board this minute.  The 2560 give you a LOT of lines. Finally seperated Arduino IDE's compiler & uploader from the gui.  Still needs a bit of clean up.  I like the new Rainbow Traces !  Starting to move on to OpenCV updates !  So much has changed.....

Here's a video from a very cool project by morrows_end & Kegfloater

They are using a Jython state machine to control a 3D simulator (SEAR) and will be using the same control logic to plug into a real Roomba.
