Comment fabriquer un Robot - Leçon 10 : Programmer votre robot - Blogue RobotShop

Si vous avez suivi les leçons, vous avez à présent choisi les actionneurs, l’électronique, les capteurs et autres, et vous avez assemblé le robot et, avec de la chance, il ressemble à quelque chose qui correspond à ce que vous aviez initialement décidé de construire. Sans programmation, le robot n’est qu’un presse-papiers coûteux bien que très agréable à regarder. Il faudrait bien plus d’une leçon pour vous apprendre à programmer un robot donc, à la place, cette leçon vous aidera dans la façon de commencer et sur où (et quoi) apprendre. Robotshop rover development manual. Run From mBlock IDE or Upload to Board – Open-source Arduino Robot Building Platform.

If you haven’t yet downloaded mBlock, installed Arduino drivers or connected your board, you might want to take a look at this lesson first. mBlock programs can be run from 2 places: the mBlock interface or the robot board.

The following talks about the differences. mBlock IDE When running a program in the mBlock IDE, the commands are sent from the computer to the robot board, where they are interpreted and then executed. This means that users can use their computers in conjunction with the robot. Un timelapse pas comme les autres… Time-lapse avec Raspberry Pi et sa (Pi)caméra.

A look at the hardware capabilities and software support for the Raspberry Pi robotics board.

An introduction to the Gertbot

The Raspberry Pi is a popular single-board computer with plenty of GPIO (general purpose input output) pins making it ideal as a development platform for physical computing projects. These are fine for low power applications, with most pins at 3.3V able to provide a maximum of 50mA draw. For applications that require more power, such as driving motors, additional hardware is needed. Enter the Gertbot: an add-on module for the Raspberry Pi that plugs directly on to the GPIO pins.

Nocturnal Wildlife Watching with Pi NoIR

The CMOS sensor used in the Raspberry Pi Camera is by default sensitive to infrared, and so it's normally paired with a filter that blocks this so that it responds to light in the same way that our eyes do and colours look natural. The soon-to-be-released Pi NoIR is essentially the original Raspberry Pi camera albeit without this infrared-blocking filter fitted (no IR, noir, get it?)

The extended spectral range of the Pi NoIR means that it can be put to use in all manner of interesting applications. An automatic self-portrait camera using Raspberry Pi. Combining the Pi, Camera Module, Python and OpenCV for a fun demo Computer vision is an exciting field that is becoming increasingly accessible through advances in both hardware and software.

In days past it would have been inconceivable to fit the computing power required into a family home, let alone something as small as the Raspberry Pi. As part of the Raspberry Pi Day hosted by RS, celebrating the launch of the Raspberry Pi 3, and four years of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, we decided to build something to show off the Pi performing face detection. This post covers the hardware and software elements of the project, including the use of Python OpenCV libraries, doing the heavy lifting for the face detection.

Ingredients It was proposed that the system should incorporate the following: Building custom capacitive interfaces with Electric Paint. Using the Touch Board as a USB HID peripheral with the Raspberry Pi 2.

Building custom capacitive interfaces with Electric Paint

Pre-loaded with an Arduino sketch that plays audio instructions right from the outset, Bare Conductive's Touch Board is pitched as an easy-to-use platform for building interactive projects. Plenty of other example sketches are also provided, giving a great starting point for beginners. Whilst it is possible to connect all manner of conductive materials to the Touch Board, it was originally designed to make it easier to build interfaces with Electric Paint.

OSMC. Building custom capacitive interfaces with Electric Paint. Projects. DenseCap: Fully Convolutional Localization Networks for Dense Captioning. We introduce the dense captioning task, which requires a computer vision system to both localize and describe salient regions in images in natural language.

The dense captioning task generalizes object detection when the descriptions consist of a single word, and Image Captioning when one predicted region covers the full image. Blockly@rduino. Doug. Apprendre à coder et programmer : 50 ressources pour les enfants et les ados.

Apprendre à coder et programmer : 50 ressources pour les enfants et les ados

Alors que l’initiation à la programmation informatique débarque dans les programmes scolaires du lycée et du collège, de plus en plus d’initiatives voient le jour en France. Cette liste a été mise à jour le 15 juillet mais nous la mettrons à jour régulièrement. Pour ceux qui se posent la question sur l’intérêt de découvrir les joies de la programmation, voici un article utile : Pourquoi apprendre à coder et devenir un as de la programmation ? Et si tu veux savoir ce qui t’attend depuis la rentrée 2016 à l’école et au collège, concernant le code en classe, on fait le point dans cet article.

Enfin, pour les vacances de la Toussaint, voici une petite liste d’ateliers pour s’initier au code. Sur le web. Chaussures connectées - chaussures easyjet - IN VIVO.

Mover Kit - The first active wearable that kids make & code by Technology Will Save Us

This is true, and we love it! For over three years we have been building a product business with hardware, software and kids at the center of it. We have shipped over 60,000 kits to over 97 countries and have designed a team around making sure we have control and partners to deliver the best end-to-end experience. From the out of the box experience, to our tight supply chain and our customer satisfaction and support. Of course, there is always the real possibility of things going wrong, and challenges do arise – which is why we have an experienced team of product designers, product managers, manufacturing specialists who are passionately building the best process to deliver the best products.

We will deliver the Mover Kit with the same detail, quality and robust educational resources as we have become known for. How Wooden Toys Teach Kids to Code. LIKE MOST PARENTS, I want my young children to be prepared for the future—one in which knowing how to program a computer will be a basic skill, like clicking “Skip Ad” on YouTube. But as a longtime coder myself (I grew up on BASIC), I’ve been dismayed by the glut of “teach-your-kid-to-code” toys that focus on programming’s most mundane aspects. There’s more to it than dragging and dropping instructions around a screen. Most people who get into coding stick with it for one reason: They want to make cool stuff. Which is why I’m less concerned whether my children, who are all under 8, learn the mechanics of it than if they learn how to use technology to create whatever they can dream up.

This immersive installation of new work builds on topics important to Poitras, including mass surveillance, the war on terror, the U.S. drone program, Guantánamo Bay Prison, occupation, and torture. Laura Poitras: Astro Noise review – Citizenfour director loses the plot. Nearly three years after he flew to Hong Kong and released an unfathomable collection of classified information, we are still struggling to comprehend the scale of the disclosures of Edward Snowden. The NSA programs exposed in Snowden’s files are massive and largely illegal, and yet also bureaucratic and pathetically ineffective.

How can we fathom the impunity, but also the futility, of apparatuses of data harvesting on a scale the Stasi could have only dreamed of? A team of reporters and editors here at the Guardian won the Pulitzer prize for their meticulous, months-long work bringing Snowden to scale. Yet Snowden’s first confidant was a film-maker, Laura Poitras, who documented her initial contact and subsequent collaboration with Snowden in Citizenfour, the third in a trilogy of feature documentaries on war and the security state. Its most affecting and important component concerns Poitras herself. Yet even here you sense Poitras’s shaky grasp of artistic syntax. Jim Campbell, Scattered Light. Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery.

After completing all the ARDX experiments, I already had in mind what I would use for my first real project... a dot matrix clock using 8x8 LED matrices! A LED matrix is a fancy piece of hardware having 64 LEDs (in my case 128, 64 red and 64 green leds), which have not as many pins. The idea is that with multiplexing, you can light one row at a time, and keep looping through all rows, so it looks all LEDs are lit, but actually are lit 1/8th of the time. (For some reason it seems more logical to me to loop through the 8 rows, in stead of the columns.
