Software / beginning 3d camera, from colours only.
« Last post by rouncer on Yesterday at 08:51:37 AM »
Uses scale invarience,  but not to compare relative depths,   it uses it to normalize a 3d compute coming from a blurred sobel filter,  and i get this:  :)

sorta pops in and out at times, a 3dishness.

You can do alot better than this but - i just need a bit of time.
My new version of this is on the way,  with isotropic averaging and the relative depth comparison, that I was missing before.
I remember someone else was talking about 3d ages ago and said to use some kind of scale detector, which you can get from counting edge density.
Misc / [advertisement] New Cascading X-Rail Slide Kit!
« Last post by ServoCity on October 13, 2017, 10:28:39 AM »
The NEW Cascading X-Rail Slide Kit provides all the mechanical pieces necessary to build a winch-driven extendable arm.  Fasten a motor or HS-785HB servo to the first stage of the slide kit and spool up the provided synthetic cable to get up to 34.5" of arm extension!  This kit uses bearings throughout - each stage is supported by 4 Mini V-Wheels that lock into the chamfered guides of the X-Rail.  The synthetic cable is routed over ultra smooth v-bearings so the torque provided by the servo or motor can be transformed into linear thrust rather than lost due to friction.  The arm, at full extension is rated for a 2lb load; perfect for adding a gripper or grapple hook.

Great share!  :)

Since I've got a lot of stuff going on in my life, the last blog I've read was It?s Time to Make Way for Smart Robots in Your Industry!. This is a blog on a company's website where you can also source parts from, which I came across when I got interested in Robotics and went on to browse websites related to such.

You can check out Power Jack Motion's Electric Motor range. They do have a wide, interesting line of products, so your choices won't be limited. Aside from RPM, there are a lot of considerations you need to do in order to select the right motor; the site's brief discussion on selecting such can provide you an overview of what's going to be the best motor for your needs.

Hope this helps!
Electronics / problems (with TinyESC)
« Last post by arduinors on September 09, 2017, 04:24:30 PM »
I'm making a car, that will be able to follow another car and I'm using tinyESC to control the speed of the motor. I use two Tinys and one somehow malfunctioned and is driving slower than the other. Does anybody has any idea what could be a problem? I've taken all the parts off and back on, and everything seems fine to me.

You'll get to do cool things ? even the most basic task is, in itself, cool.

You'll get to feel like you're Mr. Stark.  8)

You're preparing yourself for the inevitable.

Well, that's me and my two cents.

Hey Captain Awesome,

Nice username by the way. I think for a prototype it's served it's purpose quite well. I'd probably include a cover on the top if this is going to be a future project that you'll be working on. I missed whether or not the cane is adjustable, but I think it's a very noble build.

Good work.
