- EZ-Builder v2011.07.17.00


- Added support for vertical tracking. Now two servos can be configured (optional) to a Camera Control. The camera control will move your camera and track the object horizontal and vertical

- Added support for adjustable quadrant sizes in camera control. The object and lense of your camera might be different than ours. The adjustable quadrant size lets you customize the tracking areas of the image.

- Added Facial Tracking support. Now your robot can track human faces using a very fast algorithm has been added to the camera tracking features.

Just testing facial recognition

This is now really freaky when I look up at my Omnibot he moves his head to look straight at me. Then tracks my head movements



Wow, can't wait until I have a bot far enough along to test out the new goodies! You just added 3 of the top things on my wish list (if I had one)...

Almost makes me feel bad for spending the whole weekend cleaning my car and building a clock. Ok, kinda does make me feel bad. I'm on it...

BTW - Recently received two of these Wireless SD Web Cams in the mail for a project at work and now planning on getting at least one for myself after testing them out. The video (and audio via the built-in MIC) is surprising good. I have 32GB SD cards in them and they're setup to record video whenever motion is detected. They also come with factory-set DDNS for painless remote access. The auto night-vision is pretty sweet as well. You control everything in Internet Explorer via an ActiveX control. These would make for awesome robot heads hooked up to the EZ-B!


Sweet guys! I'm really glad you like the new features Smile

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging

For example:

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.


Very interesting. What is your default language/region/culture set for? Is it english? There may be a locale issue with parsing one of my resource xml files. That's what i'm thinking right now. Can you send a Contact Us message on the FAQ page so we can resolve this over email? I may need to send you a custom version for debugging to see what the issue is.

Also please write "FOR DJ" on the top of the message so it will be forwarded to me from Amy. Thanx!


Thanks for a quick answer!
