Perky gets tamed.

https://youtu.be/yRRjkru--3Y Updated the software by using the ideas from the servo-test example included in https://github.com/automation-technology-club/Meccano-Smart-Servo to change the vertical movement to steps of 5 and the horizontal to speed up half way to the destination and slow down the la...

How Blinky's sidekick Perky got his nickname.

Thumb stick control running 6 volts instead of 5 without any smoothing or easing.

Re: Blinky Box

Yes, Blinky is growing. The project currently has completed an installation of a recently modified Meccbrain.h to replace the servo header in the arduino software. This, along with an easily made small wiring harness, allows the Waveshare Alphabot's application of Webiopi software to control the Mec...

Re: Blinky Box

So with the snow flying again, here is Blinky at a young age.

Not everything works yet but the neck, wheels and vision do remotely. :)

That is a Waveshare Alphabot in his chest. A handy way to hold the other Raspbery Pi and Uno.

Re: Cameras not affixed to PCB, connector damaged

Regarding the protective film, I may in the future cut the mount in half and then attach the halves on something to mimic focusing eye movements. It is easier to protect the finish with the film.

Blinky.

Re: Cameras not affixed to PCB, connector damaged

I am not from StereoPi, but I noticed a white removable piece of tape that would allow you to firmly fix the camera in place once removed. It was at the back of the lens. Instead of firmly planting them, and to allow for future alignment adjustments I used some handy tack to seat the lenses. A parti...

Re: Blinky Box

Yes, two eventually for up and down as well, the mechanics are easy for me, the programming will be above my pay grade though. I recall building a Waveshare Alphabot with an optional arduino responsible for the movement. They had open source software for both with and without the arduino that would ...

Re: Video Streams Not Working

Check that the camera cables are in correctly. Also try to hook a monitor up with the hdmi and you should see at least one camera until you set 3d in the admin area.

Hope that helps.

Re: First Boot

Thank you for your excellent answer.

On my mobile android phone I use an app called Fing to locate things on my network, you might like it. It allows you to search for open ports on your network items as well.

First Boot

Is the disk that came with the deluxe edition bootable or does it need work? Mine is stuck on the white stereo pi screen. I do not have the cameras attached yet as I was trying out the compute module. I do have the ethernet cable attached.

Re: import duty

My extra fees were $40, sales taxes and a handling fee, par for the course.
