This is a listing of Services which can operate in MyRobotLab framework. You could think of these Services as being little software machines managing input, output and communicating to other systems.

GY80 Service

javadoc

Great display with Processing

 

 

 

Wow, this thing comes with a lot of sensors !

Examples:

[[service/GY80.py]]

MindWave Service

javadoc

This is a service to control MindWave Mobile , an EEG reader by NeuroSky.

This is the product : http://store.neurosky.com/products/brainwave-starter-kit

This is the mobile version (Black - with BlueTooth)

Examples:

[[service/MindWave.py]]

BeagleBoardBlack Service

javadoc

Skeleton of Beagle Board Black service. Primarily this service will allow access through Java to the GPIO of the BBB.
Needs a Pi4J code to be ported to a BBB4J library ?  Project is just starting.

Examples:

[[service/BeagleBoardBlack.py]]

Plantoid Service

javadoc

A Service for the Plantoids !

We are building a school of open-source robotics that focuses on a full spectrum development of beginner's mind models and exploratory curriculum that grows and flourishes with the students of its methods to create lab quality, mission actual plantoid robots that manifests behaviours possible only by organic and autonomous life forms.

Examples:

[[service/Plantoid.py]]

MouthControl Service

javadoc

Created by JHack - Blog

A service to generate appropriate mouth movements based on textual data.  Used typically in conjustion with the Speech service, so that audio speech through the speakers matches movement of a servo driven jaw.

Examples:

[[service/MouthControl.py]]

IPCamera Service

javadoc

The IP Camera service allows a video feed from a mjpeg source. At the moment, it also allows control of a Foscam pan / tilt camera using the Foscam API.

This can be used to get image data from an IPCamera to OpenCV, however, it is also possible to use OpenCV directly.  OpenCV has an IPCamera framegrabber which will decode the source of an mjpeg server on the internet.

Examples:

[[service/IPCamera.py]]

TopCodes Service

javadoc

TopCodes service allows to recognize a special code. You can print these codes using the attached topcodes.pdf.

The service gives back the following information :

  • Number of the code recognized
  • Coordinates of the center of the code (x,y)
  • Diameter of the code (which can be used to find distance)
  • Angular rotation of the code

​THERE ARE 99 DIFFERENT CODES.

CAMERA SHOULD BE AS PERPENDICULAR AS POSSIBLE TO THE CODE, IN ORDER TO WORK WELL.

Examples:

[[service/TopCodes.py]]

InverseKinematics Service

javadoc

This service allows the calculation of inverse kinematics for a (n) degrees of freedom robot arm, mounted on a rotating base..

Insert your point coordinates (x,y,z) and your rods length, and it will calculate angles of rods and base in order to reach that point

TODO : send calculated angles to arduino service and servos service

References

Examples:

[[service/InverseKinematics.py]]

FindHuman Service

javadoc

Attempts to find humans through OpenCV facedetect. Utilizes a pan / tilt kit and LKOptical track points to track human after detection.

 

 

So far you have to use Eclipse and change the FindHuman.java file in the service directory to set your Arduino pin and com port settings, etc. Then start it like you would any other MRL Service.

Examples:

[[service/FindHuman.py]]

Twitter Service

javadoc

[[service/Twitter.py]]
