Ras Pi Sandwich

I made some progress on the Cape to RasPi mount.  I didn't connect either of the headers together yet since I have more work to do on figuring out the corrects pins needed.  The perf board is resting on the Ras Pi header and I stand off I mounted to the Ras Pi mounting hole.  I can't imagine that it will fit inside the ROV but who knows.…See More

"I don't think you could do get away with trying to make the ROV Cape plug directly into the Pi.  The pins just don't line up and if you look at the schematics the ROV cape is ready to do a bunch of future stuff.  I think the best…"

"Thanks for uploading our pics. It helps much to have such a glimpse of it.  Indeed the sandwich seems to be an attractive solution and an easy solution. I assume it will be much more complicated to avoid the adaptator and adapt the rov proto…"

"That is my assumption to what will work best.  Since the BeagleBone has 46 pins in two headers it would be easier to us something like AdaFruit Proto Cape and replace the male headers with Female Headers.  You could than…"

Thomas V commented on Dan Myers's blog post Fruity OpenRov
"So if I understand correctly, you prefer to use the already designed BeagleBone proto cape and just soldering female header. I am right? Well to be franck, I am hungry to get my hands on a pi but I am waiting the release of their CSI camera to…"

"I plan to figure out a "mount" of sorts.  Until I figure out all the correct pins I need I am wasting time soldering things together and removing them.  I have quit that plan and am now using a breadboard until I have it working…"

"Nice jobs!!! I am waiting for the Raspberry inhouse camera to start playing and mounting my ROV. But it's nice to see folks already playing with it! Do you plan to mount the adafruit cap on it?"

"I have broken too many things by shoving a screwdriver in and prying. Now I try and figure out where a sticker is covering a screw or something pops off easy."

"thats very cool about the focusing. It doesnt seem like the genius cam will do that from the description but I guess that we could try this program and see?  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0080CE5M4/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i03 Dan I have a…"

"Dan, What did you had to do to get the Ubuntu package fixed? I'd like to add that to the image! Then we can add support for it in the UI. Cheers, Dominik "

Fruity OpenRov

I had some more play time and I still have not wanted to approach the entire acrylic side of this project. I don't have the slightest idea where to source the laser cutter so I am dragging my feet with it.

 

So here is a snapshots.







I know, it is a silly picture of a servo sitting on my…

Camera a Zoom Zoom!

My motor's are still somewhere in Hong Kong and I don't see any Kits or ProtoBoards showing up in the store yet ;)    So....more software hacking.



I am using the Microsoft LifeCam HD-5000 for this project per the Build Sheets.  I started to play with a little program called uvcdynctrl.  I wanted to be able to control zoom and focus and prevent them from being driven via Auto focus mode.  The Ubuntu package throws an error.  I decided to try and figure out the issue and make this…

Add-on Board

I had to do some moving of my living room.  I have a few switches hooked up in various places and one of them is on my entertainment center.  Since my BeagleBone was sitting on my entertainment center hooked to that switch, and I had to move it, I thought I would grab a few pics of the board I assembled.  The board itself is mounted to a adafruit proto board.  I use my BeagleBone for a few different things.  For example I am in the process of building a Bearded Dragon auto-cockroach…
