Watchdog on Arduino and Raspberry
Necessity is the mother of invention It's been 6 days since my last blog entry. I've been busy. I've prototyped  a couple of boards. The first is a Bluetooth low energy board which can be used for any type of sensor. The second is a watchdog timer that rest...

Raspberry to Arduino controls are finally working properly
So Hal is finally working properly. Pins can be activated and deactivated on the Arduino control from the Raspberrry PI, the Arduino protocol language between Raspberry and Arduino is stable, the Openwire protocol is working on range inputs, the Ultrasonic ...

Arghhh. Qt 5.8 and Raspberry
Frustration. That's the name of getting Raspberry and Qt 5.8 running. Up to now, since my last post, I've tried to compile Qt on Kubuntu Linux 16.10 with the Raspbian toolkit, twice with Linux 16.04. Wrecked the OS twice on the Raspberry SD card. I'm dreami...

Why a Robot
Hal is powerful. Actually, that doesn't mean anything to anyone except me.  If Hal isn't used then all the power is meaningless.  The only way I can prove that to the world is to have a platform where a ton of real time sensors are excersised.  That's where...

Arduino and robots
It's been a big week for the Arduino control. First, all the pin sequence calling were wrong. Also only the placeholders for input pins would connect to the Arduino input pins. Output pins had no way of exiting schematics into the Arduino. The big test will...

haliot.tech and dont get sick
Well I haven't been able to do any Hal work for a week. I've been in bed for almost the whole time. Somebody gave me one of those kind of colds where all you can do is just act like you're a slug while everyone helps you with drugs for sore throat and cough...

Rasbperry, Hal, NE255 watchdog timer
Well it's 3:30am and I can't sleep thinking about all the issues with Hal and how to fix them. The current Raspberry/Arduino combo hangs after a few hours so I'm putting this new box in my front hallway and at the farm as I want it to work indefinitely. Tha...

So many Raspberry to Arduino bugs and so little time
Hal now communicates ultrasonics properly alongside onewire protocol temperature inputs and switches and the like. Finally. AND THEN ................. another software bug.  There will come a time in 2017 when all these pesky bugs will have died from my pee...

Raspberry qt 5.8
So it's time again to try Qt 5.8 on Raspberry Pi and see if we have any luck at getting a full Raspbian OS with Qt 5.8 running. It's been more and more difficult to get a full compile on Qt on any OS. It may take a couple of weeks to get it working but I'll...

Onewire and Arduino and Robots
Haliot.tech Well. I welded a steel frame together for the robot but it weighs a ton. Threw it away, used aluminum instead. Can't believe the weight difference. Used what's called an HBridge to control the speed and direction of the 2 drive motors. It takes ...

Benefits of using Hal
I've added the Benefits of why you should use Hal to the website and I'm currently adding a description of some of the programming that was used to accomplish the 2000 schematic controls that went into that creation.

Raman, Robots and motors and my wall and Raspberry 3d
Well I've officially started my robot. So I have a Raspberry/Arduino wall mount for my front hallway that'll give me a bunch of front door stuff, camera, motion detector, door bell, door open, package monitor and more. I also have the Raspberry/Arduino box ...
