Searching For Glyphs

Hi guys and galls, I am writing a script for K9, that depending on which glyph he sees first determines what he does next. now I am taking this step by step to increase my learning of ez script, so the plan is as follows. When asked to "patrol", he wanders off and looks for glyph 3, then moves on looking for glyph 4, then glyph 2, then back home to...

Servos Moving Forward

Hi Guys and and Girls, i have got K9 responding to voice commands, including some responses from him verbally. so things are going great apart from... when i ask him to move forward his servos respond, but only for a second (or less) and then stops, yet if i ask him to reverse his servo's keep going until i ask him to stop. originally i thought it...

Returning A Robot To A "Home" Point For Charging

hello all, once again, my brain is giving me ideas that is outside it's current capability (LOL) I am starting research for my next project (code-name T.A.D = Totally, Awesome, Droid). one of (the many) functions i want him to have, is the ability to return autonomously to a designated point in the house for charging when his batteries get below a...

Switch Activated L.E.D

Hi all, I have been thinking about a way to add a led to the "Attck" script on K9. Now I believe I have an answer, but just wanted to sound it out.

My thinking was...

K9 Toy

Hi all, If you read a previous post of mine it was referance sound bites for a k9 toy, that I wanted to hack. When purchased from a car boot I found that the unscrupulous seller had removed anything of worth and cut all the wiring. Never mind. So on to the build, with a couple of continually rotating servos and a trim here and there things are...

Possibly A Daft Question

As many of you will (painfully) know I am learning loads and asking lots of questions, I would apologise, but if you don't ask you may never really know. So here goes another question. Whilst looking into servo speeds in the ez script help i noticed something wierd and was wondering if I am missing something. ServoSpeed (servoPort, speed) Set the...

Hunting For Glyphs

Me again - still learning and lovin EZ-B I want to show off traxx in its basic form, by making him hunt for a glyph. I have set the camera to recognise glyphs and sorted out a custom glyph, but how/what do I need to do/say for traxx to seach the house to locate it? Its probably something easy and I am making it difficult (as always)

question

Camera Disconnecting

Helllllpppp please, I am feeling totally useless. I have hooked up my camera to my ez b and set the servos (2 x sg90's) to ports D02 x axis and D03 y axis. To follow a colour. I have the min and max on both servos to within 30 degrees of their start and end positions. This allows me to "see" what the camera sees on the screen, yet when I want to...
