AXON-ROBOREALM...wireless??
« on: August 07, 2010, 09:37:19 PM »
Hi, now that I can communicate to axon using roborealm ( :D).. how do i make the connection wireless? I checked out the bluetooth tutorial on the website but could not understand much.. Is it possible to use RF to send and receive the video to the axon? or can i just use a bluetooth tranceiver with the axon? any help here? thanks..

You can't send video to the Axon . . . at least not at any reasonable frame rate.

You'll use a camera somewhere else, and something that processes the images (like a PC and Roborealm), and just send the final processed result to the Axon. The Axon then takes this command to do whatever you want.

Now if you wanted it wireless . . . your webcam + PC does all the work, then sends some command (as decided by RoboRealm) by Bluetooth (or whatever) wirelessly to your Axon.

Just ask Steven at Roborealm to configure a special version that uses a different UART port (ie not USB) and your desired baud rate. It'll probably take him just a few minutes to do it.

sorry, i phrased my question wrong before.. I do not want to send video to the axon, but yea just the processed output from roborealm. Admin, you said before that you were in thailand. Where can we get bluetooth tranceivers here in thailand? I've been looking for them everywhere but cant be found. I haven't been to Bangmo yet. It's a huge market, as you know. if it is available there could you tell me where exactly could i find it? thanks..

To my knowledge, this is the only place in Thailand to get Bluetooth to UART devices:
http://www.warf.com/

for example:
http://www.warf.com/electronic-products-532.html

btw, its the most amazing site ever for a farang robot builder :D

(and you are a farang, right? :-X)

As always:

btw, the last I heard Forest Tiger Plaza burned down (early 2009? can't remember). Not sure if they ever rebuilt or planned to rebuild it . . .
