So we've all seen problems with robots moving their motors around with no idea where they actually are and whether or not they're getting into trouble or even doing the right thing.

Python Community Libraries

Hello MRL'ians :)

Wvantoorn mentioned I should start a post regarding our future Python Community Library.  Right now, our library is checked into github as part of the MyRobotLab repo.  This repo is primarily Java (framework) code - but the library has grown significantly, and there are many scripts floating around which would be nice to share, modify, modularize & improve.

Hello, I need help, I installed myrobotlab and I can not work or I this example amended or any service that has the opencv. 
I can not print the data in Phithon.
# This code creates an opencv service and tracks a face. 
# It thens finds the center of the face and converts the position to a scale of 1-100

ServoOrchestrator (at least a try) & a (my) call for testers

Ma. Vo.'s picture

In the other service I came up with (it started small, but got big very fast) (-> http://myrobotlab.org/content/inmoov-gesture-creator-short-introduction-... & http://myrobotlab.org/service/inmoovgesturecreator )
GroG asked, if it was meant to become a "(Servo-)Orchestrator", it wasn't,

but this idea didn't released me and by hazard I found an (old) sample of me:

PIR Sensor

bhouston's picture

I have my PIR sensor set up to powerup my InMoov after after it powers down from inactivity.

I have the PIR attached to pin 12 on my right Arduino.

To start the PIR up, I do the following;

Open the myrobotlab GUI

Open Runtime then start the Arduino service,

Then select Tools and the Board and COM Port the PIR is connected to,

Go to the Oscope and select the pin that the PIR is attached to.(have the power on to your PIR)
