Very cool work, and sounds fairly complex.
Can you program the robot to attack people?
Hey, so as I said in my introduction post thinger, if anyone has read it. I told you guys that I was the lead programmer for my high schools robotics team. So I'm not sure if anyone would find this useful or anything, but i'm making LabVIEW lessons for future robotics programmers to come. So I figured the Other programming board would be perfect for this information. So yea if anyone is interested in more of this kind of stuff let me know and ill keep you guys posted and I'll bring more to the forums.
As a quick preview, just to show you what could be done with LabVIEW our team has a video of some program I created.
Xbox-Controlled Gyroscopic Holonomic Mech Robot [FIRST Team 871]
The money shot is from 1:13 - 1:27 8)
What you are seeing in the video is Field Orientated Drive.
So pretty much if you are holding the joystick forward, whatever angle or position the robot is in, it will go forward.Pretty fancy stuff. 8)
Oh man I can't tell how much i hate labview. it bring me so much BAD memories. And I thought it's impossible to make something useful of it, guess i was wrong about labview.
I still prefer to use FPGA and 32bit Microcontroller as (NXP, STM, Altera) and of course my favorite Atmel.
OMG its imitating a UFO xD
But seriously thats pretty cool getting it to go forward no matter where its looking, but for reals can u make something that flys using LabVIEW?
Lol actually something like that happened this year, if you take a look at this video, FIRST Team 871's Vision Tracking Demonstration I made a target tracking program. The robot could pretty accurately follow someone around that had that on their back. So in the code the robot can tell how far the target is away by how big it is, and the person sped up and ended up getting rammed because the robot tried to catch up to him lol.Originally Posted by Fleep
Haha a lot of people don't like it. It goes against what a lot of programmers learn when they learn their first language.Originally Posted by Atmel
Lol :P that is my favorite part too, The day I made it do that was the day I decided I want to do something like this for the rest of my life, lmfao.Originally Posted by Konsowa
Well LabVIEW is just a programming language lol. So it would be up to a mechanical engineer to build a stable flying craft. Than after that the programming goes into the computer. On a nice small scale I probably could lol.
