Monday November 5th @ 7pm.
Ryan Pierce will show us how he is rewriting an Arduino 1-Wire library
"...to be (mostly) non-blocking. My project is AC phase dimming with
triacs while still reading temperatures... Each half of the AC sine wave
is 8.333 ms. And reading a temp from 1-Wire is a 10 ms operation. So the
new library allows me to start an operation, get a (nearly) immediate
return, poll the timer for the AC to see if it is time to fire the
triacs, go back to polling 1-Wire to see if it is time to bang a bit
which should return (nearly) immediately, check the triac again, rinse,
lather, repeat..... "
John Dolecki will bring his Robot to this meeting. He says "Please don't
expect techno mumbo jumbo from me as my programming skills are on the
beginner level. I'm sure once you are introduced to Microsoft Robotics
Studio, the C programming will look familiar to you.Let the Robot
Apocalypses start here!"
Sounds great, John!
