  • Correction: libVISO for monocular odometry. All the videos are really fun to see.
    Will Smith Mar 30
  • Hello All! Thought this might be of interest; I'm trying to get the libELAS monocular odometry working well for a small robot (i.e. no wheel encoders, just a camera) and there's lots of neat videos to review as well. -Will Andreas Geiger Andreas Geiger Home Publications Projects Students Teaching Links CV Andreas Geiger All Software Datasets Displets Resolving stereo ambiguities...

  • The current Make Magazine (I think--I got it 2 weeks ago) has a new yearly review of some of the current printers; the reviews seem pretty solid and unbiased. The new Dremel printer is interesting in that it's made to sell off-the-shelf at Home Depot, and has software bundled as well. (I'm very happy with my ~$800 Printrbot 2.1, but it's no longer made. The machined aluminum build...

  • Your projects sound interesting indeed. I wasn't aware that Delphi was even still maintained--but whatever works (Pascal lives, IIRC!) It's all personal preference; I've found good use with C++ and the Eigen library, or python (specifically iPython and numpy,) matlab/octave, but I really get a kick out of V-REP due to the physics simulation and 3D model support. Somewhat confounded...

  • Thanks for another comprehensive write-up, Peter! As far as simulation goes, do you recommend any particular software? I've used Gazebo and V-REP, just curious if you have a preference. I haven't seen a good way to create a vector field in either.

  • That was a particularly insightful response, Peter. Thanks for sharing!

  • That is looking awesome! I've had some successes with a simple adaptor cable (search "display port to vga adaptor" on Amazon) but I'm not sure what the resolution of the projector SRS is; the results might be that your UI is cropped. Might be worth picking up a cheap one to try out next meeting? Another option would be if the video camera is in play, to just have it zoomed into...

  • Hi Dick, Sorry that I don't have much more advice on the matter-- I think Mike or Dr. Bruce have experience with EMGU (noticed your directory is "EGMU" but don't that that's the issue.) A suggestion is to register the EMGU files with the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) (would have to google that) or to add a post-build step to copy the files to your build directory. Hopefully that's...

  • This was a particularly inspiring meeting, those are some smart kids! Hoping to attend one of the meetings @Aviation High soon. -Will On Fri, Oct 17, 2014 at 10:01 AM, < SeattleRobotics@^$1 > wrote: "Our Monthly Meeting" reminder When Saturday, 18 October 2014 06:00 PM to 08:00 PM (GMT) Greenwich Mean Time - Dublin / Edinburgh / Lisbon / London Notes Our regularly...

  • I had a similar experience, the vision system will certainly not work when you get really close, and you need to rely on sonar or just bumpers when in range! I scripted a simple "Drive until you feel something, then back cup, turn 90 degrees, and update waypoint" subsumption type routine. -Will On Mon, Oct 6, 2014 at 4:45 PM, davida@^$1 [SeattleRobotics] < SeattleRobotics@^$2...
