    VL53L0X Time of Flight sensor

    There was some talk about VL53L0X. I posted some picaxe code on gcb forum and a mmotte converted it.Cool. Did anyone get further? I find it difficult to convert picaxe to gcb. This vid is my version of picaxe VL53L0X code converted to gcb #chip mega328p, 16 #option Explicit #include <glcd.h>...

    erco-laser range finder

    Erco. I got one of these and got to make a driver. I'm on the case and will report. Sensing is 50 time a second which is a bit disappointing. I done this before. You end up learning c :(

    self balancing device

    After following Edmunds threads, I got a MPU-6050 3 axis sensor but haven't used it yet. There's plenty of examples of making a self balancing machine on the net, I didn't say robot because I wouldn't call a segway a robot and more people come here than the robot section anyway. Has anyone...

    Oled serial slelect

    Hi. I bought some 128x64 oleds and 1 has missing resistors to short and changes the display from serial to 1c2 but I can't seem to find info. I couldn't post camera images even though they were 700k jpeg so these are from a site which tantalisingly didn't explain it. Maybe some one here has used...

    Erco Sharp ir range finder

    Erco posted an equation to convert the sharp GP2Y0A21YK0F adc to cm. I don't do hard sums and to the power of a minus decimal number looks fun. Starter for 10, can anyone help me code this in...

    lcd code not doing what I want

    Hi guys. I've posted some oled code that I thought may be useful and thought a "scope for 08m2" would be nice as seems lots of people have trouble with getting a working example to start off with it's tedious so posted template code but for picaxe with 1K scratchpad. I got this code from a light...

    Video and scopes

    [ Moved from a thread where it was off-topic ] If I drop the picture size on my camera I can post a video but it looks rubbish at vga so I use youtube. It's hard to get an idea across sometimes and a picture says a thousand words etc. It's an interesting project you have and I have a "sinclair"...

    help with hard sums

    I have an ultra-sonic range finder mounted on a servo. the servo goes 0 to 180 deg say with servo values of 75 to 225. I want to draw the range in a semi-circle, bit like a radar. The screen will be x 0 to 63, y 0 to 63. please see diagram. I need to convert the servo angle to degrees and from...

    Picaxe Tron

    Here's a blurry video of Tron on a 128x64 oled. I thought of a simple game and this was the simplest to do. Now the computer opponent bit is done, I just copy the player code to make it 2 player. I haven't got printing and graphics on the same screen because the...

    Picaxe Tron

    Messing round with a diddy oled and thought let's do space invaders but too slow, so here's badly filmed Tron. I needed a 28x2 because it need 1K for the graphics..if you could call them that. There's a deliberate flaw in the picaxes control or it would be impossible to beat unless it ran out of...

    1 bit audio

    It's too late to try this. Has anyone? I'll try tomorrow and if it works when I find a speaker try using a bit not a byte. ; 1 bit audio record and playback from 8ohm speaker #picaxe 28x2 setfreq m16 main: wait 5 for ptr=0 to 1023 ;record @ptr=pina.0 next ptr wait 5 for ptr=0 to 1023...

    Two sensor line sensing

    hippy.I posted code that put 128 pixels into 16 bytes and suggested checking 8 or 16 bits at a time. erco has built several line followers and from only 1 real test can see the advantage of edge detection. The track I used was irregular width so the centring algo I used performed poorly. v2...

    My 1st line follower

    By popular demand..well erco :) I think it's been done before. A simple line follower...well there's different ways and I tried a 6 sensor array and it's pee poor but almost funny to watch. OK the array...
