Wow . . . thats sooooo much more accurate and reliable than the flame tracking I did with the Blackfin camera . . .]Wow . . . thats sooooo much more accurate and reliable than the flame tracking I did with the Blackfin camera . . .
Nicely done! Is it easier/cheaper to interface the Wii mote than a Termopile array?
Does the Wii mote "see" humans also?

Thanks, Its likely due to the PI controllers. They really smooth things out.
I bought a blackfin too, but have been very disappointed. Mine from the start unreliably would turn on, and I haven't been able to make it communicate with my microcontroller. I can talk to a pc no problem (ftdi cable) but when I use my micro all I get is garbage data even though the baud rate is correct. did you have any problem implementing communication due to the blackfin being a 3.3V device. I turned on the pullup resistors on my mcrocontroller's RX pin to try and help. Still nothing. My other thought is that the error associated with a 115200 baud on a 16mhz (on the uC side) crystal could be causing the problem, but I communicate at that baud all the time. If you or anyone else has suggestions I'd appreciate it.
Yea definitely look at my code then. Or just use it TongueIts a single file, and my ERP is a good example of using it.
QuoteNicely done! Is it easier/cheaper to interface the Wii mote than a Termopile array?probably not easier. The way I do it is a bit conveluted. but the wiimote approach will only set you back $40 if you already have xbee or bluetooth. 1) Use a program called glovepie to convert the x,y values of the remote into a PPJOY joystick (a virtual joystick).2) I use Processing to read the joystick data and encode it into Serial data.3) I use a bluesmirf to get the the data from Processing to my microcontroller.QuoteDoes the Wii mote "see" humans also?no, unless your sporting a couple of IR leds .
make it semi autonomous like make it remote controlled when u want and the make it autonomous when required .like sort of switching modes .-gaurav
Cool! You use a PWM signal to run the speaker? What power amplifier you have? And what frequency is the signal?Thanks!
What type of speaker? Base is better?
