Curt the Creeper Update: Adding Voice Interactivity and Sound; 4 bar linkage design


I spent the past few weeks researching voice interactivity and sound effect playback (mainly through Google search), and designing a 4 bar linkage to figure out what powertrain I need to drive the feet movement.  I thought others might benefit from info about my work so I'm posting it here.  This project will likely move at a fairly slow pace mainly due to current budget constraints.

Matlab and PICAXE comms

Anyone out there who knows how to make Matlab work with serial communications?

I'm in the early stages of writing a matlab program to do inverse kinematics for a leggy kinda robot, and I want to get it to send the numbers to a picaxe via rs232 - seems fairly straightforward?

My test program is behaving wierdly



Picaxe = serial('COM4');

set(Picaxe,'BaudRate', 9600, 'DataBits', 8, 'Parity', 'none','StopBits', 1, 'FlowControl', 'none'); 




B = fread(Picaxe)
