Let's Make Robots!

InMoov tracking and voice control using MyRobotLab

Alessandruino's build in progress..

MRL - 3D Point Cloud

Put the video up - now got to join the points into a mesh - turn the mesh into a continuous space polygon which will wrap all possible space to move in - and use LKOptical tracking to anchor it to the "real world" ... then we'd be slamm'n

Hi LMRians.  Just thought I might show you the latest software I'm working on in MRL .


HSV depth version

SEAR + MRL = Simulator + Controller


Here's a video from a very cool project by morrows_end Kegfloater

Ro-Bot-X Chumby Re-Born !

After Ro-Bot-X's little chumby suffered a massive overdose of voltage, he's back up and running with MRL (headless)

Here he's boadcasting a very slow camera stream to my house (2500 miles away)

Yay !  Back from the dead !

It's not super stable video feed, but I have some ideas on that.. also we could try some different camera's too... 

My Computer Found it's BellyButton

Yeah, it doesn't look like much... but I'm excited.  I've been meaning to do this a while, just didn't have the time.  I'll be doing a variety of tests to see how it preforms.  It has several "Match" algorithms to play with (CV_TM_CCOEFF_NORMED, CV_TM_SQDIFF, etc) - and I think there are several normalization routines.

This match algorithm seems fairly fast @ 120 ms - Haar Face Detection takes longer...

MRL + Kinect

Found a inexpensive kinect sensor on craigslist today..  Built the openkinect libraries..  fired up glview - boom ... Hey .. whataya know ... it works !    Next?  Integration with MRL, SLAM & MAAHR

Chumby - Ro-Bot-X's Living Room & MyRobotLab

Ro-Bot-X and I are working together even though we are 2500 miles away !

Hey Look... I can see Ro-Bot-X's living room through the eye of the bot he's currently working on ! (Hopefully he won't mind me posting it :) )

MyRobotLab Plays Chess with Patrick?


This is a blog post for PM and anyone else interested.  I have been doing many updates to mrl, and have begun working on some tutorial videos.  Patrick Mccabe and I spoke a couple times regarding hooking up his great chess robot to mrl for a game engine.
