Sorry for the confusion! :oops:

We were unable to moderate but now Malc has fixed it.

No problem - I've worked as a production-line machine operator many times, so I'm quite good at running repetitive mouse clicking as a background task! The most annoying bit was that a couple of hundred of the 1300+ spam threads were that bot which always posts "Where is administration at dsprobotics.com?" - that felt a bit close to the bone given the circumstances, and I was starting to take it personally! :lol:

I remember the very first time that question was posted, because I thought it was genuine so I responded with helpful comments. :lol: :oops:

I'm inspired. I'm going to start work on my Flowstone Automatic Car Driving schematic tomorrow. I'll hook it up to the motor over the weekend and we'll be bombing up & down the M5 in no time, you'll see :D .

Otto will do all the driving, and I'll sit in the back with a laptop and try and fix the bugs :ugeek: .

I mean, what could possibly go wrong?

:lol:

Make sure the "side of street" Ruby input is clearly labeled so I can invert it before beta-testing. :shock:

It might not be such a complex problem as you think... ;)

Thanks Trog, essential stuff. I'm getting there, this oughta work ..
Code: Select all
def init
   t = 0
   @applyBrakes = 0
   @applyThrottle = 10.5
   @sideOfStreet = @sideOfStreet * -1.0   # cheers @deraudl :-)
end

def brakes(howHard)
  @applyBrakes = (@2Fast && ~@2Slow && ~@nietzscheanTractorTrailer) * howHard
end

def throttle(floorIt)
  @applyThrottle = @applyThrottle * floorIt
end

brakes(t)
throttle(t)
@reverseGear = @nietzscheanTractorTrailer & (brakes>11)
  if @reverseGear
     @brakes = 0
     @throttle = 11
  end
t = t + 1
output 0, @throttle
output 1, @brakes
Just got the steering bit to sort and I reckon we're good to go. I just wish low-pass filters were this easy :lol:

I should have the pedestrian-targeting module up and running in a day or two...
just need to disassemble and reverse-engineer some Space Invader code.

(Probably won't need DSP or ASM for that: they're not all that agile.)

Just the easy stuff left to do, then...

The code for the bonus flying saucer might be useful for slightly faster targets, too - e.g. the hooligans who race stupendously loud quad bikes around our local roads in the early hours of the morning (mind you, they are very community spirited - I saw a few the other evening all wearing their Covid masks while still rebelliously omitting crash helmets!)
