Introduction At the actual date the first part of the project is closed: machines are assembled in the box, powered and the entire architecture has been set about 95% accordingly with the initial design. The only plus is the introduction of a fourth PI as the Cirrus audio board it is very difficult to match with any other hardware implementation on the same device so the PI hosting the Cirrus will only work in conjunction with the Bitscope module via the USB that is used in reverse mode. I mean ...
Introduction In the Meditech container there is a variable number of devices working at least at two different voltages: 5V and 12V. In this prototype version the definitive powering system has been moved to the bottom of the priorities due the restricted deadlines and the need to have an experimental unit before a final decision: battery type, charging type, power consumption etc. Just for this reason the power will be granted by a common ATX switching power supply. This implies a couple of con ...
Starting from the selected box that will host the Meditech prototype components the first step has been to prepare the container to host the prototype components. First of all the setting of the cooling fan. The following image shows the general idea on how to use one of the two sides of the box. The other side will contain the default probes, accessories etc.   A modular system To keep the system totally modular, every specialised device (based on the Raspberry PI) is hosted on one of ...
The prototype container is arrived today, just waiting to be adapted to host the Meditech components.     It is almost compact and has sufficient space to share all the components, the power unit (in the base) and one of the two sides will contain probes and accessory. For now the decision is to posticipate the question of the battery powering and charger system. Just to remember, the project will include: solar cell, external domestic power charger and car power charger. For this ...
Since my last post I've made some good progress on setting up communication between the various Raspberry Pi computers over MQTT. I got a case in the mail for my RPi 2 and that bugger is now sitting in the living room with a network cable plugged directly into the cable router. At my desk I have the other two RPi's that make up the brains of the pizza carrier.   PiFace CAD is running on my old RPi model B and the Xtrinsic board and GPS module are on the Model B+. Both have their own wifi d ...

The HDMI Monitor As I mentioned in some post before, the initial idea to use a separate tablet as display unit has been expanded and simplified, using an LCD display integrated with the device. With the advantage to use the external smartphone or tablet as the access point for tethering only. The two images below shows the prototype display. It was already available so it is sufficient to make tests but it is 4:3.   The used monitor is a non-standard HDMI; I mean that it supports the H ...

Hi everybody   Is time for a new step in Cybernetic Interface development - audio interface configuration. Because RaspberryPi lacks a microphone input, which I need for my project, I had to add and configure an external USB sound card. Due to space constraints I picked the smallest I could find,  Konig 3D Sound, based on C-Media CM108 Audio Controller. It worked from the first try, plugged directly in RPi USB port or in USB Hub. Configuration and testing steps are listed bellow ...
Week 3 Blog This week has seen more Python coding to produce menus and test out the capabilities of the PiFaceCAD. but it is not elegant enough to share just yet.  I need to cobble together the Service Element from the Sysinfo program and the Internet Radio program so that i can get the Pi to start up the generator as a service on start up so that users don't need a console or TTY connection to use it.   I do have some pictures to share, though, as I have been looking at the possibili ...

Introduction Software Hardware Demo   Introduction  Addressable LEDs or NeoPixels are typically used in combination with an Arduino or similar microcontroller, due to the timing critical signal required to control them. An SBC such as the Raspberry Pi is not suited for such realtime GPIO activities, as the Linux operating system runs other tasks in parallel. Or at least that was the case until Jeremy Garff found a way to use the DMA (Direct Memory Access) module to tra ...
After a full-discharge the battery used for testing has been recharged with the simple circuit mentioned in the post Powering the camera probe for few hours to test if the charging circuit, experimental and very simple, may have problems .   Test conditions  7,5 Vcc / 1500 mA LiIon rechargeable battery Full charge done (about 3 hours) with the LM350 based battery charger Power regulator based on LM7805 Raspberry PI B+ with camera running continuously with the frame capture program. ...
The ZD1211 choice As mentioned in previous posts, the Camera Probe (that is, the RPIslave2) will include a WiFi connection. To make the board more compact and use a cheap but reliable WiFi connection the choice was the ZD1211. In the Linux environment it is a sort of "standard" as the os firmware and kernel modules to support this device is widely diffused on many linux distributions, especially for the embedded linux devices.   As a matter of fact any kind of WiFi dongle supporting this f ...
Introduction As mentioned in previous posts the device RPIslave2 is equipped with the PI camera to capture still frames imaging diagnostics. This probe should be easily moved outside the Meditech unit; it remain connected to the remaining system via WiFi and should be battery-powered. The powering characteristics should be the following:   When hosted in the Meditech unit the device is powered-up running in stand-by mode: some features will work but it is not possible to manage the camera ...
Introduction An important change in the UI strategy Production costs reduction Data exchange security improvement Qt 5.3 testing Introduction Inside the Meditech architecture the platform RPImaster is the deviced that has the main role of server coordinating the system of probes, storing data, streaming and more. In few word the RPImaster device will assolve the following tasks: Bridging between the internal network and the external internet connection Apache web server wit ...
Prelude My initial design was to build a set of robots around the raspberry Pi and use other components in the kit to build the control systems. Since I am yet to receive the kit, I have moved to researching the Image capture and recognition part of the project.   Introduction OpenCV (Open Source Computer Vision) is a library of programming functions mainly aimed at real-time computer vision, developed by Intel Russia research center in Nizhny Novgorod, and now supported by Willow Garage an ...
The Machine-2-Machine protocol, MQTT, has really forced me to rethink how to organize the whole communication process of this project. MQTT stands for Message Queue Telemetry Transport and is touted as the protocol for the developing world of IoT (Internet of Things). Developed by Andy Stanford-Clark and Arlen Nipper, MQTT has been around since 1999. I heard about it while scouring the Raspberry Pi forum for information on communicating between two Pi's over TCP/IP.   Here's what the offic ...
This is the first preview of the microscope camera that will be one of the probes connectable to the Meditech unit for micro-surface investigation e.g. skin, pariculars and so on. The video shows an example at about 200X magnification. As much the magnification increases, as the DOF is short. The device will be protected in front by a transparent circle and thanks to the internal leds ring light it can be put directly on the subject surface.   Next step: stream the real-time images on ...

A component that is very important for my project arrived: the projector! The very generic-looking box Projectors can get really expensive, but as you can see I went with a budget version. For around 50 bucks you can find yourself a Chinese-made projector that does 480x320 and has a brightness of 100 lumen. If you're thinking that's pretty pathetic, I agree. I decided to spend a little extra and got myself one that did 640x480 (at only 80 lumen) for 70 bucks. This way R2-D2's projector would ...

Hello   The parts arrived a week ago and I was glad to find all essential pieces inside.   The first step was to check the RaspberryPi_V2 and install Raspbian, 2015-02-16 at that time (I saw a new one - 2015-05-05 - came out since) and made usual configuration, expand FS, enable camera and network configuration for remote access.   This was my first contact with the RaspberryPi_V2 and I'm pleased about it. Improved CPU, Micro-SD slot and the 4 USBs are so far the most importan ...

PizzaPi: Quick Update

Posted by dmrobotix May 10, 2015
Hello, everyone!   Sorry I have not posted much recently. I would be remiss in my contestant responsibilities if I did not keep up with my updates and give a quick heads up on how things are going with PizzaPi!   Last week I started my 10-week full-time internship at the lab I work at and its been a bit of a challenge getting used to working all those hours! I'm actually spreading these 10-weeks over a 20-week period, so in a few weeks I'll be off again and I'll be more active around ...
Hello all! Been busy getting everything connected and initialized for the build. Successfully connected Gertbot, MEMS board, and Pi Camera. I've got them successfully communicating through a Pi Rack onto the B+ (as the MEMS refuses to work with the Pi 2). I have noticed that whenever the Gertbot is driving my test motor that the MEMS readings really wig out. Ultimately I think I will have both Pis running in the project - a navigator and a driver. I'll have the B+ connected to the MEMS board, Pi ...

Posted by taodude May 9, 2015
Finally getting to grips with using Python and the PiFaceCAD and accessing the Pi using SSH/PuTTY. but I'm having less success writing blog posts that have all the fancy formatting that others are using, probably because i am writing the blogs late at night as a summary of the previous day or so's activity.  Also, this Blog engine has not been programmed to autocorrect my dyslexic fingers.   I'm on the road this weekend and most of next week, and i haven't quite go the project to the ...
After probably having broken my pi camera last week, I tried to revive it, but to no avail. At this point it's probably safe to call it a lost cause. I wasn't too worried over it. I have 2 USB webcams lying around and I figured I might be able to just use one of those instead instead. In fact, these USB webcams have a built-in microphone. In absence of the Cirrus Logic audio card, that would really come in handy!   Meet Laurel and Hardy   The left one is a Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000 ...
The software solution to create a bridge in the main device, able to manage the internal network and the external WiFi connection convinced me that this was probably the best solution to deliver all the needed features:   All the Meditech RPI can be accessible logging to the Master RPI via ssh or from the graphical desktop The internal devices can access the Master RPI device via the internal LAN sending their data to the storage database (MySQL based) via http / https and PHP The intern ...
The reason of this documental note is to underline the elements that should be took in account with the project respect the use of some connection strategies, i.e. the adoption of the Bluetooth for printing and - where it is possible - some probes and the WiFi connecting the diagnostic part with the display control.   I tried to keep this document as short as possible argumenting the aspects with some attached PDF and specialised sites links.
