Multiwii - meh?

GroG's picture

Here's MultiWii running in the same process and MRL. I put in a couple serial hooks where I thought messages were going to go back and forth..  I was pretty surprised in that I thought you could control a quad copter with this program, but it looks like its primarily for reading telemetry & tuning your quad


Tracking face with opencv

Jay's picture

Hello im working for the first time with myrobotlab which seams to be a tool without limits.

as an beginner i have some problems to understnad the working of some code to modifie it right

im working with the  Tracking.face.py code all works great.

Speech Service

javadoc

The speech service is used for to generate speech from textual input.
The service has a "front end" and a "back end".  

The front end determines if the speech is to be processed sequentially or in parallel. Typically, if you don't want it to sound like crazy voices in your head, you'll want speech to be processed sequentially (this is the default behavior.

D-H Parameters and the InMoov for a Kinematic Model

So, I have been working a bunch trying to control the InMoov with a joystick, and its been difficult.  

I was considering moving to an inverse kinematic model for joystick control, where the joystick will just move a point in space, and the  inverse kinemetics can compute the proper joint angles.  

In order to do this accurately, we need a model for the orientation of the gears (axis of rotation) and the length between the links (gears)


Kinect Directional Microphones

This is just for info to bring attention to the possibility of using a Kinect sensor as a direction sound source finder.

It appears that the Kinect has a 4 microphone array on board, from what I gather one purpose is to cancel out background noises.

As the picture shows above its able to do differential sound location.


GPS Service

javadoc

 

Global Positioning System for MyRobotLab. 
It will read data from a GPS sensor through a serial connection and parse it into its appropriate fields

3D printed leg from 3DPrinterOS

Here's a fun little project and was open sourced at https://cloud1.3dprinteros.com

This leg is about 1/2 the size that the inmoov would need, but it's interesting as a start.  The parts were reasonably easy to print, though some did need to be printed with supports. 


Corrective glasses for InMoov's Farsightedness

Gareth mentioned these glasses for the Kinect are supposed to cut the min/max distances by 40%
