Need Help Programming C++ Interface

need help programming a c++ interface for yarp so that I can give my robot the ability to learn would gladly make available to the community have tested with arduino and works perfectly if interested let me know have other modules I can give also need help printing the head in abs willing to pay


Upgrade to ARC Pro

Unleash your creativity with the power of easy robot programming using Synthiam ARC Pro


What is yarp? What specifically do you need help with?


YARP = Yet Another Robot Platform, lots of info in Google land.


making a "device driver" as they call it for ezb then I can post my Cartesian controller and my modules that allow robot to learn in real time using camera and servo position as well as a lot of other things I think it would be a benefit to everyone the original driver was written for a 56f807 controller using motors I want to rewrite the code to accommodate the ezb and servos to make a setup that is available to everyone to experiment with and maybe allow everyday people to make advancements in robots was using a lot of code from the icub had it working 65% using arduino could use all the help I can get also need someone with 3d printer to print plastic parts for me willing to pay


also have the original source code if you need it


Soooooooo, you have software already in C++, that you wrote for another controller and you want to convert it to communicate with the EZ-B?


Mike, have you experimented with the SDK yet? You'll find the key component to the .NET examples in the SDK are several .DLL which are the key to integrating the EZB in software. The "device drivers" are in essence already written in the .dll files.


they call them device drivers but they in essence only device interfaces to the yarp system so that yarp knows how to talk to the hardware to make the servo and motor moves and can send sensor data over the yarp network to give example for one part of the memory it saves servo position data for a certain case then using neuro network it can pick best position for certain case that falls back to it hope that explains better what iam trying to do basically I need an interface for yarp using the dll ie Cartesian module sends positions for joints in arm to interface to move the 9 servos that make up the arm and move the servos to get to a point in 3d work space


Mike, it all sounds like a great idea. I hope you find a way to get this done. I wish I could help but have no knowledge of how to write this code.I'd be one of the "common" people who would benefit from this.

I have one request; could you use punctuation in your posts? One continually rambling sentence that goes on for line after line is hard to read, hard to understand and in my opinion disrespectful to the people your trying to communicate with. Also it's actually in the forum rules that you need to have legible forum posts. I really would like to follow your ideas as they seem very interesting. :)


I'am sorry if I disrespected you in any way I did not mean it. I was at work and trying to answer something in a hurry. But a disrespect is going a little far don't you think. People use improper English everyday it's not a disrespect(your should be you are or you're)


Mike, are you an experienced c++ programmer? I'm not failure with YARP, but like I said, if you use the SDK and you have programming experience you can probably interface the EZb controllers with your YARP.


Whatever Mike. You're (woops) Your disrespect was not towards me but was general and subjective. So, I guess it's all about you and whatever is easier for ya. The heck with who ever is trying to read your request for help. I asked nicely and ya couldn't handle it. So, have a good stay, good luck with getting the help you need and type away and away and away and away.

Oh, BTW, all your posts in the past 2 years except the very first one haven't had any punctuation in them, ever. Not just this once when you were trying to answer a question from work.

@Justin, from his past posts it seems like he has little coding experience, a good idea and wants someone to do the coding for him.


Thanks everybody, I figured out what to do. Basically, a friend and I wrote a c sharp wrapper to yarp, that only uses the functions I need, leaving out all the confusing code. I have some coding experience but little to no robotics experience. I"am learning fast!
