Dave     I've been interested in this since you started teasing us about it.  Is that what you meant.  just teasing :p

#6   — Edited

LOL brother. Yep, that's what I meant. The English language sucks sometimes and auto correct doesn't help. Thanks for keeping me literate.

Thanks for joining, everyone. Let me know what resonated with you. What you found intriguing. And anything you’d like more clarification with. It’s a pretty impactful approach by being the good skynet of robotics - and we want to make sure the messaging is clear.

Thanks for sharing this with us.

Your concept is very intriguing.

"Anticipating the future robotically" (sounds like a good book, lol.), is quite a uncertain venture to achieve when you don't know the AI companies involved and what they require.

My wife is an mechanical engineer ,a scientist. We were discussing this concept. We understand robots have been in manufacturing for many years already in many capacities.

Can you be a little more specific in what type of robots we are talking about?

We may be up to the task at hand, thanks for having faith in us.

Be well, be safe.

Ha ha nice,the shout out for my Paranormal robot from a few years ago,I still have it and upgraded the Tank tracks from a Vex kit,I am adding the X-box kinect camera to get the stick figures in a room if they actually exist as a spirit that can be detected by kinect sensors.We were supposed to investigate an old museum this month but everything got cancelled from the shut downs.

Nomad - i just tried your "drive the droid with the name robot". You'd have to make sure the robot can actually drive before using it :D. All teh robot does is turn in a circle real fast

@EzAng.... You ok?.... Who are you talking to? If it is @nomad what does ROS have to do with his issues? ROS has been around a long time and has been discussed to death here throughout the years... What is your fascination with it anyway? Just asking....

I was talking to nomad

Nomad said he "never heard of it", that is why I posted 2 links

look above

EzAng

hello EzAng& RR

i try the link and got a 404 error.

User-inserted image just one question.do i need to adjust the settings on the exosphere settings or the adventurebot settings?

thanks

PRO
USA
#54   — Edited

If you are talking about your robot's seed, adjust that, I use 255 for my JD robot

You adjust it in the exosphere settings - max drive speed

Also I tested the 2 links I gave you, they work

EzAng

#55   — Edited

@EzAng... I understand that @nomad has never heard of ROS. That in itself doesn't surprise me. What I am confused about is how does/will ROS help nomad with his current problem and all other future problems?....

PRO

#56  

Listen Dunning-Kruger,

First, I never said this is for the present problem.

Nomad and I were discussing this Ros separately.

Why are you jumping into Nomad and my conversations here?

We are having fun, enjoyment testing DJ's exosphere.

You can't control our conversations.

Your pic settings are for the speed, yes

Sorry Nomad, I tried it again, your camera just rotates to fast, lol

Might be me, I am at our farm, I will try later if you want at a different location.

I will let you know later.

I have to go now, see you again my friend :-)

the setting number one does not work.1 or 255 speed is just desame.it doesn change the speed. left and right turn are not adjusteble.way too fast. what does these errors mean?is it the commen t in the box?

Nomad the error in the box is coming from ffmpeg process that encodes the video. You can ignore them for now they are not going to cause a problem. I will look into them soon.

amin

great to hear.what about the speed setting i cant adjust?

thank you

PRO

#64  

Speed settings should work. The setting on the left is for when people use a joystick to move your robot and the setting on the right is when they use keyboard arrow keys to move the robot. For example when they press up arrow key on their keyboard, it moves the robot forward for close to a second using the keyboard speed set (marked by number 2 in your screenshot). In that window you can test the speed by clicking test forward or moving the joystick.
