Moved the motor controller boards to the back of the legs to cut down on wires at the top of the hips. Installed HS-805 servos to replace the smaller servos that turned the feet. Now the feet really turn.

Manticore on OSX?

ttur's picture

Hello!

I'd like to run Manticore release on OSX, but Gael's InMoov configured version dumps core on startup (latest Java 1.8 on High Sierra). I'll look into it, but I would like to know if someone here runs it successfully on OSX? If so, which Java version are you using?

Any other tips regarding MRL and OSX are also very welcome. We have been running it successfully on Windows with our InMoov, but I need the better TTS language support in OSX now.

Git - update to latest

rekabuk's picture

Hi All,

I have used SVN extensively and Git only a little, and never from within Eclipse!

About 3years ago I followed the instruction on downloading the latest Git repository and setting up a development environment in Eclipse and I've not updated since - "If it ain't broke - don't fix it"

But as I am probably a little behind, I'd now llike to update my working copy to the latest release - and keep any mods I've made (I could copy these out of the way first I guess).

We all want Yolo - best place for it probably is in OpenCV service as a filter .. 
This means it needs to be supported in JavaCV

Exciting times !

odometer for InMoov cart

In trying to add some self control to my InMoov I work on making it find an ARUCO marker and position itself in front of it using its macanum wheel base.

 

A disadvantage of the mecanum wheel base are the different possible movements and - depending on the surface - quite a lot of slip which makes wheel encoders  a poor solution.
