    Review by Jeremie
    The information provided by the manufacturer is a bit hard to understand for a novice, which I'm not.

    Anyway, the device works great and the range is surprinsingly good.

    Awesome Remote
    Review by Develsigner
    I purchased this remote for my AL5D and I'm very happy with it. The quality is very nice and it gives me a simple way to test out the AL5D to ensure it's working correctly as I'm writing software for it.

    It was very easy to connect using the instruction manual. It only took about 5 minuets to setup. You're going to need x6 F-F 26 AWG wires with 2.54mm housings to hook up the controller to the microprocessor. My controller did not come with the wires, so I had to dig some up. Make sure you have some on hand or you'll be disappointed when the controller arrives in the mail.

    The sample programs for the controller show you how to rewrite the code to make the buttons perform other functions than what they are originally setup to do.

    The only down side that I found about this controller (-1 star), is that every time I cut power to my AL5D to make some changes, I have to power the controller down and restart it before it will work again.

    Maybe there is a way to reprogram one of the buttons to re-sync with the microprocessor without restarting the controller, but I haven't been able to find a way.

  • DFRobot IR Kit for Arduino
    great sensor
    Review by Markus
    No problems at all getting it to work all you need to do is find the corresponding values for each button on the remote, can use with and IR remote which is super useful.

By Julie Gendron & filled under Consumer Robotics, Domestic, Vacuum.

The Deebot D77 system will change everything you thought you knew about robotic vacuums. It is the first 3-in-1 robot in it’s class to empty itself automatically when it returns to it’s docking station. You therefore no longer need to empty the dust bin after every few cleaning cycles. The canister is much larger and [...]

Robot Construction Kits

Posted on April 23, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under GoRobotics >> Education, Robotics Projects & Kits, Where to Start.

Robot Construction Kits can be distinguished from normal robot kits since they use modular parts and allow you to assemble different robots using the same parts. A robot kit on the other hand only allows you to build one robot. Robot construction kits are a great investment because they tend to include everything you need [...]

Hi again, I tried it and ran into several issues with display/touch. The first main one is that it is not setting the SPI to the right set of registers when it you are touching things... Main issue is in: SelectedBtn I hacked it up to look like: void SelectedBtn(int x1, int y1, int x2, int y2) { Res...

FYI,

The part that draws the text of the 2nd row of buttons can be a bit simpler...
Something like:

Code:
 for(i=0; i<=7; i++)
 {
   tft.fillRoundRect(((i*6)+7)+(i*BOXSIZE), 46, BOXSIZE, BOXSIZE, 7, ILI9341_WHITE);
   tft.setCursor(((i*6)+16)+(i*BOXSIZE), 52);
   tft.print(i+8, HEX);
 }

Kurt,

I've been to get the keypad to work. to me it seems to have some lag when selecting items from the second row of buttons. This has been a fun and good learning experience for me.

I need to think of a better way to add the numbers and alpha character's to the buttons. Thanks

I believe you have a logic issue. That is you have:
Code:
for(i=0; i<=7; i++)
{
...
 if(i > 9){

So your loop has I going from 0 to 7, so your test for i > 9 will always fail and as such your code to output the text never happens.

I've been able run this trial without any issues using teensyduino 1.20 rc1. It took me a bit to understand the mapping of the touch screen part.
I'll post the code when i get back home. Thanks for the help.

I was getting a few bad readings from time to time. But could probably easily adjust code to take care of it. Also could probably also minimize it by maybe taking a couple of samples and averaging as to remove any bad values. Also if I were to use something like this as part of a real project would ...

Hi Kurt,
Good to see your having fun with your Teensy, Sounds like a convenient method to save ports and wires. I do see he get some faulty readings. Did you also get them or did you adjust it?

Not necessarily, actually the two systems are independent of each other. What you instead need to do, is to play around with the mapping of the raw touch values to logical screen locations. If for example you look at my test program, you will see: boolean OLEDSGC::GetTouchPoint(word *pwX, word *pwY)...
