Face Tracking Using OpenCV and Processing (Error) [SOLVED]

UPDATE: As i said guys, when the face tracking program is launched immediately on start-up, i don't get this error, otherwise i do. Now, the program has launched, without an error, but the display output is totally black. Any suggestions guys?

I also referred to CP's solution to this same problem, ON A LAPTOP, but to no avail. I installed quicktime, and a vdig driver, but no progress till now.


 

Hello guys,

arduino error needs solution to make its programmer happy

hello everybody!,

need help with my  arduino...whenever i try to upload the code, this comes to the screen

"avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00"

 i tried with the reset button , the ports are ok and i have the right programmer and board selected, but....,the error still goes on!

please help!!!

[SOLVED] Strange compilation error

Hi everybody!

I'm making a little robot using Arduino and it works fine (you can see how it works on the embedded video).

The robot walk alone perfectly but today I tried to use an infrared remote with an infrared receptor to use my robot like an RC car, and I had this error at compilation (I'm using IRremote library):

 

core.a(Tone.cpp.o): In function `__vector_7':

D:\Program Files\Arduino\hardware\arduino\cores\arduino/Tone.cpp:535: multiple definition of `__vector_7'

expected ( before token ;

i am getting an error in the pinmode verify area that i dont know why im getting

 

here is my code

 

 

 

arduino error when uploading a sketch

i just got my arduino today and when trying to upload the simple led blink code off the arduino site and an error came up saying "serial port 'com4' is allready in use , try quiting any programs that may be using it.

can anyone tell me how i can deal with this???

Arduino updates - I hate the new Arduino

When I started using Arduino, V0018 was the latest and greatest. Since then there have been about 7 updates and every time they update, more and more of my code fails to compile.

Since V1.0 and now V1.01 it seems the capital letter "F" cannot be used for a function name. This caused the error:
error: expected unqualified-id before 'reinterpret_cast'

infrared sensors

I've got two sets of phototransistors and infrared emitters put together to make two IR distance sensors. They are both connected in the same way, both powered by my Arduino Uno, both with the same resistor, etc. But when I check the values I'm getting from them, one of them ranges from about 980 - 1010, with the higher value closest to the sensor. The other, however, goes from about 350 - 570, with the higher value the furthest from the sensor.

Arduino IDE - what's wrong with versions 0019 onward?

Ever since the release of the new Arduino PCB's there have been at the time I wrote this 4 new versions of the IDE. As far as I can tell none of them work very well. All of my code is written on version 0018 and works fine. Open the same program in later versions such as version 0022 and you get an error when verifying the code.

Here is an example.

MacAxePad syntax error

Hi guys,

First post here.

I got the "How to make your first robot" 2.0 kit for my son and I am having problems.

I use an iMac 10.6 and MacAxePad software and I'm having this syntax error "s"

I cut and paste the following from the tutorial on this site, but it still doesn't work.

 

servo 0,

150 wait 2

 

 

I'm not normally working with gadgets like this, but I'm trying and it's slowly getting the best of me.

Intellibrain problems

Hello everybody. I'm trying to get my intellibrain bot to comunicate with arduino via I2C, but I get some errors which I don't know how to debug. Google doesn't help at all. Here is what I get on my display when I turn on the program:
"Code: 20&97b6 
8d57 8d24 839d"
and after it shows that very shortly it turns the program off. It happens both when arduino is on and when it's off.

Picaxe resetting or stuck in fatal loop

 

I'm reprogramming Robot Leader, and I'd like to be able to use PWM to pulse his LED eyes. The only problem is, I also have to command a servo to turn his head, and the Picaxe28x1 does not allow you to use PWM while you are using the servo command. They both rely on the same timer.

Arduino Serial to Processing

Ok, thanks for helping me with my last question, but now I have another one...

I am currently trying to make a robot with a tactile switch at the front. When that tactile switch is pushed down the robot reverses and turns around. Here is the cool part though, when the switch is pushed down it will also send data to processing, causing a face to jitter onscreen. So far I have been able to make the code for the face jitter (except on mouse over) Here is the code if anybody is curious:

RS232 Communication with MCU

So I am making my own CNC - PCB Miller. It is communicating with the computer using RS232 (UART), but in my testing, I find that I don't always get the correct characters, even at 1200baud. Does anyone have a method to suggest for error-checking an incoming data string over serial? I was thinking of doing something like this:

CPU sends data to MCU 4 times.

MCU checks to make sure the data is repeated exactly 4 times.

--If yes->send "OK" 4 times

--If no->send "NOT OK" 4 times

If CPU receives OK, queue up the next data to send

Nobody's perfect, least of all me.  Here I intend to record some of my roboting mistakes for my own good.  Perhaps you can learn from my errors, or even contribute your own.

problem with IR remote upgrade

i was trying to see if i could make sounds, LDR-test and ir remote test.

upgrade stuff here: http://www.rev-ed.co.uk/docs/axe040.pdf

but there is a syntax error :(

Is My Arduino Dead?

Is my arduino dead.
i have the Arduino deicimela or whatever.
i have my code and when i verify its say "yep she's good mate, upload er".
but when i go to upload er it sits there for ages the IDE freezes and then to me it says "look here mate lets get something right even though i said its all good, im just not in the mood so im not gonna upload it until you make me feel better". however to anyone else it would look like this:

Binary sketch size: 976 bytes (of a 14336 byte maximum)

what is wrong?! ..and what can i do!?

okay..         so i just finished my new robot(8 servo quadropod)and started makeing a test program.   when the test program was done i downloaded it to the picaxe and it worked! then i started to try out use the srf05 to see if it was plugged in the right way! so i made another program and tryed it and that worked too!
