Re: Section in Code Repeating as if Button is Always Pressed

Appears that you might need to debounce the input. Debouncing checks the button twice in a short period of time to make sure the button is actually pressed.

Here is the official arduino post:

Re: Linear Actuator

Using the model number, I found it on Aliexpress https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32596077754.html It doesn't appear to be a linear actuator, but is used as a position detection device. According to the seller it's applications include: injection molding machines, die-casting machine, blowing machine...

Re: Cloud Machine Learning

One year later and I've found a free solution. Google Colab https://colab.research.google.com is a free jupyter notebook environment that runs only on the cloud. In doing so you can run jupyter notebooks like https://colab.research.google.com/github/tensorflow/hub/blob/master/examples/colab/object_d...

Re: What Would be the Best Accelerometer for Detecting an Impact / Crash

I would think most accelerators should work - however, I would personally check the Measurement Range , which is measured in g's unit (g-force). For example: https://www.jaycar.co.nz/3-axis-accelerometer-module-for-arduino/p/XC4478 has a measurement range of +/- 3g, which may be too little - dependi...

Re: Connecting LoRaGo DOCK to Wifi network - Keeps disconnecting and reconnecting every 2-3 seconds

Hi Zeb,

Have you tried keeping the gateway connected to a computer through Serial and checking for any error/info messages on the Arduino IDE Serial monitor?

Re: Connecting LoRaGo DOCK to Wifi network - Keeps disconnecting and reconnecting every 2-3 seconds

Hi Zeb,

If you leave the board plugged into the computer through serial - do any messages appear on the serial monitor?


Thanks,
Ben

Re: Cloud Machine Learning

I'm no expert in machine learning. In fact far from it. Since starting the project last year I've discontinued after running into the problem of not a large data set. For my model there is simply no database out there that I'm aware of that exists and is properly labelled for a Single Shot Multibox ...

Re: Cloud Machine Learning

That's great, but Udacity does have some pretty good courses too, that have been sponsored from the likes of Google, AWS and Nividia.

Example course by Google on Udacity (IT'S FREE TOO):

Re: Where is the Best Place to Buy a Good QR Scanner That Works Well With Picaxe

I would think a raspberry pi would be most suited for this job. * Raspberry Pi 1 Model B+ $45 ( https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/SEVRBP0125 ) - Even though it's not the latest model, I have used it before for QR code reading (my VPLS project) and it worked fine with the python library Zbar ( https:/...
