Misc / What makes things like robotic servants expensive?
« Last post by vipulan12 on August 25, 2014, 08:31:17 PM »
for example something like a walking robot like asimo?
what does asimo have that  simple hobby robots dont have that make it so expensive?

Huh, I guess, if that's the case, then that answers my question right away :-P  I suppose the question would still remain for very large arrays, but those are (relatively) easy to store in flash anyway.  Neat.

Are you sure the code needs to be in RAM to run?? Most of these small processors execute code from FLASH, RAM is only used for variables and data buffers.

Software / Programming with limited RAM
« Last post by mstacho on August 25, 2014, 08:13:11 AM »
As my adventure with the TI MSP430g2553 continues, I'm struck by something: there are only 512 bytes of RAM, compared to the Arduino and Axon II which has some 8KB (at least for the Mega).  Strangely, it has 16KB of flash.  So I was wondering something: are there tricks to writing large programs (ie: ones that could never fit into RAM but can easily fit in flash) that are used? 

I can imagine something like this: write the entire program in flash (including how it WOULD look in RAM once loaded), then write some kind of operating controller that selectively loads/unloads the RAM with the flash data as it is needed.  As long as you are doing everything sequentially and interrupts aren't killing you, that should work...right?

I know that we can optimize the code to use LESS RAM, but I'm talking about a case where there is just so much code that even after optimization you still have no hope of loading it all.

Mechanics and Construction / EZ Robot JD

I was wondering if anyone here has got there hands on or have an JD Revolution Humanoid Robot from EZ-Robots.


If so, could you provide some information on it and post it here on your experiences with it and like a mini-review or whatever. I'm just looking for some info on this robot before I buy it from them just to make sure that I'm buying something worth while.

Regards.

Work on the artificial muscles continues.  I have an update planned for tomorrow with some data on how much weight they can lift and how far, but before I get to that, there's some little stuff.  First, I made a gigantic muscle out of nylon trimmer line, and it worked -- further expanding the possibilities for making these at home.  Second, I have some observations and speculations about why the coils of the muscles sometimes "flatten."  http://writerofminds.blogspot.com/2014/08/homemade-nylon-artificial-muscles-v.html
