So I forgot… Oops!
Redesigning a design… again! Updates
Abstract The proposed project has an array of submodules and sub-projects as explained in the first post. Till now I have made a basic RPi Robot and gone into the basics of adding a python GUI to control it. I have also started working with OpenCV on the Raspberry pi and worked with live images. I have also produced a DIY quadcopter and added it to the mix. So I fo ...
Abstract The proposed project has an array of submodules and sub-projects as explained in the first post. Till now I have made a basic RPi Robot and gone into the basics of adding a python GUI to control it. I have also started working with OpenCV on the Raspberry pi and worked with live images. I have also produced a DIY quadcopter and added it to the mix. In this update I talk about some 3D printing and how I printed a LCD bracket. So you have a 3D printer Congratul ...
Abstract The project proposed has subsystems that need to be produced individually. The project is all over the place right now and due to issues with my ISP, I am having to deal with delays of all kinds. In this update, I redirect you to an existing project series that I am doing and I will be using it in my project so please read on. The Surveyor I started a series of posts on making a quadcopter and the posts are as follows: [Building a quadcopter] [Part 1] [Building a Quadcop ...
Why another tutorial

Abstract The project proposed has a subsystem which can use the image processing capabilities of the RPi to get commands visually which can be transmitted to various devices over the network. In the previous post (http://www.element14.com/community/community/design-challenges/sci-fi-your-pi/blog/2015/05/16/project-virusweek-2-getting-started-with-opencv-and-rpi-camera) ...
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 ...

Introduction In the last post, I described the hardware part for our robot which uses the Seeed Studios GrovePi+ since I am yet to receive my kit. In this post, I talk about the software part and making the robot move. Lets see what we can do. Setting up ...
Where to start
Making a Chassis
Setting up a Raspberry Pi
The additional Hardware
Introduction As described in my previous post, my project has sub modules. Each has a Sci Fi Purpose and it should all come together to complete project VIRUS. OR I may divert all together and do what I see more fun to do. In this post, I start with making a robot. I will try and write these posts out in the form of tutorials so that you at home can follow along. Lets ...

Introduction I have a habit of biting off more than I can chew and this design Challenge will be no different. Bear with me as I explain the basics of my project. My complete proposal is a 'bit' longer than this parti ...
