Skill For Controlling Waveshare Serial Servos Type ST Series

These servos are high quality and the type ST3215 is also quite inexpensive. The type ST3025 (BL / metal housing) is suitable for semi-professional use. Robots for show cases and longer operating times could be equipped with this. The servos can already be activated with the Feetech RS RS485 skill. The two communication protocols are probably very...

Ability To Dynamically Change A Button Image In The Interface Builder

The ability to dynamically change a button image in the interface builder, would allow an image to be displayed alongside a description of that image. I want to ask my robot to talk about exhibits in my Science Centre and display a photo and description. There are dozens of exhibits to talk about. Just displaying text is not sufficient. Athenas...

Getting Distances

One of the machines that Im working on is a robotic sander. I found a similar scenario on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z329o3phUzs&t=2s Scan and sand and thought it was very similar to the navigation skill. The difference would be to make waypoints go back and forth rather than directly to its target. I have the 360 lidar working but...

MQTT Broker Skill - Autostart

Hi, it is possible to start MQTT broker from a script? I always need to push the button. This is important to ensure the AutoStart from my Robot, without manual intervention.  This is the first thing I need to do to start the Robot and ARC should be able to programmatically start the broker.  Thanks.

Pwm Servo Feedback

Id like to request a modification to the Pwm Servo feedback skill to be able manually insert the min and the max -or to be able to move them into position with arrows before someone pushes the button to calibrate min and max. The reason is you can manipulate and move your servos but mine are using a screw drive and you cant just push on it because...

I Know You Are Working To Get GPT-3 Working, But What About Dialogpt?

It would be a lot of fun to get this working with ARC. The coding is over my head, but I know DJ (and company) could do it in a heartbeat. :)  DialoGPT is a SOTA large-scale pretrained dialogue response generation model for multiturn conversations. The human evaluation results indicate that the response generated from DialoGPT is comparable to...
