Webbot, would this be fixable in the next WLS version? Or should I add something to the Axon FAQ to help others who have this prob?

Misc / Axon Mote price reduced for the holidays
« Last post by Admin on Yesterday at 08:01:12 PM »
New reduced price for the Axon Mote, just in time for the holidays!

The Axon Mote is like a mini-Axon, but with a micro-wireless transmitter and uSD built right in. You can program it within minutes using WebbotLib.

$54 for a single, or $108 for a dual mote kit which includes a free USB cable:

At that point you are done. This is not an extra step in modifying the servo.

Sending a pulse modulated signal to the servo is how you tell it what to do - your microcontroller will send the pulse signal to get the servo to turn at the desired speed

Software / last step in modifying the servo tutorial

In the last step it says to send the PWM to the servo. How do I do it?

Misc / Re: Robot Path Finding Project Home

Just to update anyone, basically what happens at the moment is you feed in a text file map like this with a Robot and Goal position:

###########
#       #       ##
######      ##
#        G     ##
#          #####
#          #      #
#          #      #
#          #      #
#R       #      #
#######      #
###########

And you get this, which the robot then traverses:

###########
#       #       ##
######      ##
#        G     ##
#        *  #####
#      *    #     #
#     *     #     #
#   *       #     #
#R         #     #
#######      #
###########

Works with either a hardware or software robot and the path planners are interchangeable so you can get different more optimal paths.

Electronics / Eye Blink Sensors?
« Last post by ksquared on Yesterday at 12:33:49 AM »
So I built this thing for a guy who have multiple and massive physical disabilities. 


He can't use a regular computer, but he can use voice feedback and giant buttons.

It seems to work fine.  However, I know of another disabled person who could something like this: he suffers from Lou Gehrig’s disease.  Like Stephen Hawking.  http://a57.foxnews.com/global.fncstatic.com/static/managed/876/493/Hawking1.jpg?ve=1&tl=1

The only way he can interact with hardware is by... blinking.  And were gonna do this.

Therefore, I was wondering: does anyone have a viable blink sensor on the cheap?  It has to be fast enough to detect deliberate blinks, but it doesn't have to be fast enough to gather precise statistics on a rabbit or a squirrel's blinking pattern.

I *think* I can do surface mount if I have to, I can etch circuits, and I've had engineering circuits I.  I can follow insturctions and do soldering, but sadly, designing a blink sensor looks... really really hard.  So thanks for anyone who can help me!

I too have 32 bit Java on a 64bit machine, it turns out. As always, props to Webbot :)
