    Hey Sani, welcome to the forum. Lot's of helpful info and helpful people here. Let me know if I can help. P.S. still a noob. :grin:

    simulink/launchpad integration

    Update, so the launchpad link above does work!!!! It is awesome to use the launchpad through matlab, i suggest it for anyone else.

    simulink/launchpad integration

    Here is something worth checking out if you are interested in this topic: http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/37825-simulink-embedded-coder-target-for-ti-launchpad I think this may be what I am looking for, there is just never enough time to do everything I want to do, as I am sure every other DIY'er on here will agree!!! :grin:

    simulink/launchpad integration

    ill have a look into it further, no dice just yet. Perhaps I will have to develop this on my own. Thanks for the reply blue. :thumbup:

    simulink/launchpad integration

    I'm trying to control a hexapod, 18 servos, no other sensors for now, using the matlab/simulink interface and a launchpad. Has anyone done this that may know of a beginner walk through for like a robtic arm, or a simple rolling bot? I've already done a simple one using Arduino, but I'm fond of the Launchpad.

    Best information for those new to the MSP430?

    Also, I forget on here where I found this compiled list of short cheats for energia: http://f4dtr.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/energia_cheatsheetv01c.pdf But it is always good to have handy for noobs like me.

    Automatic Scoring for Foosball

    Right!!. I'm thinking of multi camera angles. The replay would be initiated by the goal sensor led/photoresist. I'm just throwing ideas out there. If anyone has any other cool ideas I would love to hear for implementation. ~ Orso

    2.2" 320x240 Color LCD Booster Pack

    I may have to purchase this for my automatic scoring foosball project. I have just began the project on the forum. Best Regards.

    Automatic Scoring for Foosball

    I'm having some trouble with the points being counted automatically. Using an LED with the photoresistor. I think I need a light with a more direct light. I wonder if a laser pointer would work with a photoresistor? Or, I guess I could direct the light of the LED with some kind of 3D print. more posts to follow. ;-)

    Parking Sensors

    This would be cool to have so you know where all the empty spots are. Thus, you are able to park as soon as a spot opens up. Soon we will see this in smart cities.

    Automatic Scoring for Foosball

    Also forgot to include the most important thing of all, the MSP. :? perhaps in the next video :wave: . bye for now

    Automatic Scoring for Foosball

    some pics of the table at hand, and my first upgrade of many. The foosball table is a 1 goalie style, with the sloped corners. very fast play. The circuit I have set is a simple LED scoring system, wired to photoresistors that record a point as the ball passes over the goal, blocking the light of the photoresistor is shaded by the scoring ball. Check it out, looking forward to hearing any comments. thanks for reading this.
  14. its another Friday!! :)

      P.S. I will have to come into work on Saturday.

    Automatic Scoring for Foosball

    I posted in another forum about using a lidar sensor for the automatic scoring, but I have not heard a response about finding a reasonably priced sensor. I guess that is a little overkill. I guess I should just go for the variable photoresistor. I have the circuit setup for the photoresistor. Pics to come soon!!! So excited about this project.
