Getting Orbbec Astra working

hairygael's picture

Hello everyone!

It's been almost two years now that I bought a Orbbec Astra to replace the Kinect 360 on my InMoov robot.

Why? Because it is smaller, it can "see" at a closer range and most of all, it is powered via the USB 2 plug.

Finished the huge power cords and power supply just for having a Kinect.


Now that being said, how do I make this thing work in MyRobotLab?

I am trying to making inmoov hand using leap motion with the help of myrobotlab.

But myrobotlab is not working properly as when ever i upload the python script it shows me the following errors

1.Arduino>MRL bad magic number 0-9

2.inmoov right hand is not connected

JMonkeyEngine Service



JMonkey ( is a open source game engine, made especially for Java game developers who want to create 3D games.  But it also works as a very capable simulator with tight integration to MRL.

I think it has enormous potential to begin providing a robotic "Mind State" - where real sensors generate virtual walls.  Or information from OpenCV is used to mark, tag or label 3D objects.  This can be central to how the robot "sees" the outside world.

Hello everybody,

I have got a problem with starting myrobotlab.

SwingGUI is OK, every services start OK,

but jMonkey Engine 3.0 doesn't work - blaсk window witch is not responding.

I tryed start in two other computers, but the result is the same.

What can be the cause? How to fix the error?

I have sent log by "no-worky" service.

Very impressive video of Open Pose processing.  Towards the end the go into the algorithm stack.

What kind of madman am I?

Now, before I get any further, I'd like to know exactly how bad of an idea this is.
