Electronics / Re: Eye Blink Sensors?
« Last post by Billy on November 29, 2014, 12:18:29 AM »
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

In your shoes I would start with a webcam and the trial version of RoboRealm or other vision SW. Rather than trying to physically detect the eyelids moving, you should be able to see them moving. Or if you struggle with the eyelids, roborealm can probably be programmed to see the pupils (eyes open) and not see the pupils (eyes closed).


With vision SW, you can potentially improve performance and add functionality even remotely by just updating the algo. Maybe a look to the left or right can be added to increase the number of inputs possible. 

I'm sure if you explain to the roborealm community what you are trying to accomplish, you'll have people lining up to help you.

I just checked the roborealm page. There is a module there already to get you started:
Machine Perception Toolbox
The MPT is a cross-platform collection of libraries for real-time perception primitives, including face detection, eye detection, blink detection, color tracking. Future versions will also include expression recognition, predictive color tracking, and tracking based on multisensor fusion.

Good luck!

So I have been following every step required to program the robot.
1. Add photovorev1.c to the project
2. Add SoRUtils
3. Set the external make file as 'makefile'
4. push rebuild solution

And I get an error:

I remember being able to build the project without problem but unfortunately I used a wrong Hexfile to program my robot so it didn't work. xD
Now that I know which one to use I cant build the code ;'( Help!

I would also be interested, if Kiros cannot make proper arrangements with you. I'm in Ohio, USA. You can contact me via email: telops "at" gmail.com

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?

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

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