In this post we will face some image processing technique, like blob analysys. I will use the cvBlob library to detect blobs in the image capture by the raspicam   Step1: cvBlob installation 1.       Download cvBlob library from this link                https://github.com/Steelskin/cvblob                   ...

Previous posts for this project: http://www.element14.com/community/community/design-challenges/sci-fi-your-pi/blog/authors/screamingtiger?ICID=BLOG-SciFiPi-challengers   I have been updating my code for the QuadCop in the GitHub.  I am new to Git Hub and many of my changes were not being committed.   https://github.com/screamingtiger/QuadCOP   So for anyone looking at the code it may make more sense now.  The ControlSwitch_32 was very outdated and missing the head c ...
After some busy times, I finally have a weekend for working on this project One of the ancillary parts of this project, is to make some blob analysis on the images captured by RaspiCam to detect laser beams. So I need install the OpenCV libraries and try to get images from RaspiCam inside a C program. The idea is that an external application will command the autopilot subsystem (by means of MAVLink messages) and will detect reflected laser beams to start some special effect So here are the s ...
My QuadCOP is fully repaired.  However there is appears to be one casualty, the Pi-Cam.   I am getting the infamous pi-cam error and all the normal workarounds are failing for me.  When the QuadCop "landed", the little eye/bubble on the head filled with water since it landed in a puddle.  Apparently sound sensors don't detect water real well.  I am not sure if that killed the cam or if the jolt from the ribbon being pulled out did.  I confirmed the ribbon is ok. ...
Introduction The Meditech project is moved to the further step 1. This will produce the formerly testing version of the device; this means a version enabled for testing with volunteers. To move the project and the prototype to the end of this step a series of essential upgrades has been focused playing on the actual version. While Meditech phase zero aimed to reach a full working prototype, despite of the aspect the testing version Meditech phase 1 will be the first full working prototype.   ...
Hello! I'm one of those people who has been selected to participate in this exchange. Unfortunately, my involvement in it was close to zero. I did have a hard time fullfilling my obligations to Element14 community and the participants of this contest. I had external circumstances that made it quite problematic for me to participate, the most important being clinical depression, which I still feel like I'm yet to get rid of even though it's been a year since I started my medication. Unfortunatel ...
This past week finished up the Sci Fi Your Pi Design Challenge, and we saw a mass influx of final project updates being posted. Following the spirit of my Weekly Design Challenge Summary post, I wanted to make a post that would wrap up the Sci Fi Your Pi Design Challenge and showcase some of my favorite projects.     To get started let’s take a quick look at each of the 25 Sci Fi Your Pi projects that captivated our imagination and inspired us over the last several months.  ...
