Good job....! but in the last SDK I have a problem.... I have done a program to control all of my servos in the way that I wanted... but when I use the example of the Camera in the SDK I can not see anything in the panel of the camera... but the motion is working correctly with out anything to see in the computer.....

In the last few latest version of the SDK, you must call Process "UpdatePreview"

Before, the preview window was auto updated with every object detection command - that used way too much processing since you only want to update the window occasionally.

So Camera.UpdatePreview() needs to be executed for you

Here is an example..

Code:


private void timer1_Tick(object sender, EventArgs e) {

if (!_camera.IsActive)
return;

ColorDetection.ColorEnum color = (ColorDetection.ColorEnum)comboBox3.SelectedItem;
ObjectLocation objectLocation = _camera.CameraBasicColorDetection.GetObjectLocationByColor(color, 10, (byte)trackBar1.Value);

_camera.UpdatePreview();

if (!objectLocation.isFound)
return;

if (_ezb.IsConnected) {

int position = _ezb.Servo.GetServoPosition(Servo.ServoPortEnum.D12);

if (objectLocation.horizontalLocation == ObjectLocation.HorizontalLocationEnum.Left)
position++;
else if (objectLocation.horizontalLocation == ObjectLocation.HorizontalLocationEnum.Right)
position--;

_ezb.Servo.SetServoPosition(Servo.ServoPortEnum.D12, position);
}

string logMsg = string.Format("Object found at {0} {1}", objectLocation.horizontalLocation, objectLocation.verticalLocation);

tbLog.AppendText(logMsg);
tbLog.AppendText(Environment.NewLine);
}

Hi Dj again...

I have been creating my own program but I have a question.. In SDK the servos positions are between 1 to 100? or 1 to 140??? Thanks
#5  
1-100 you can use EZ_B.Servo.SERVO_MAX and EZ_B.Servo.SERVO_MIN for defining, incase DJ increases the amount of positions or changes in future firmware updates.

That's right Orwnic:) All of the max and min positions are specified for things like PWM and servo and ServoSpeed, etc:)

That way you can reference them for what Orwnic said - if they ever change in the future
