I have not had much energy for writing the past week; I will say that I have SAD-st, that is seasonal affective disorder-summertime type.  The DSM, the psychiatric diagnostic manual, has SAD-winter time for those who are affected by the lack of sunlight, but nothing for those of us affected by high heat, humidity, and long days.   479 more words

Operational space control of 6DOF robot arm with spiking cameras part 3: Tracking a target using spiking cameras

Alright. Previously we got our arm all set up to perform operational space control, accepting commands through Python. In this post we’re going to set it up with a set of spiking cameras for eyes, train it to learn the mapping between camera coordinates and end-effector coordinates, and have it track an LED target. 2,246 more words
