I recently completed the "OpenCV for Beginners" course at OpenCV.org. It was a great way to get back up to speed on the current state of OpenCV including conventional techniques as well as new Deep Neural Net applications for computer vision. This is my review.
Having trouble connecting to your OAK-D camera on the TurtleBot4? It might need UDEV rules for the device in order for ROS to be able to see it.
A quick tutorial on how to create a ROS Overlay to modify the launch file for TurtleBot4 Lite in order to enable joystick control with a Bluetooth controller.
Are you trying to figure out how ROS starts up when the TurtleBot4 boots up? This article explains how the ROS Launch files are used to start up ROS on the robot using the robot_upstart package to create a Linux service.

Vancouver Mini Maker Faire 2017 Since our inception, the IoT Design Shop has sponsored the Vancouver Mini Maker Faire held every June in the PNE Forum in Vancouver BC. We believe strongly in the mission of the Maker Faire movement, and have been extremely excited to be a part of our local maker community. […]
Maker Faire Bay Area 2016 Our entire IoT Design Shop team was extremely fortunate to attend Maker Faire Bay Area 2016 courtesy of Microsoft, Arduino, Adafruit, and Hackster.io after we won Best Project – USA in the World’s Largest Arduino Maker Challenge with our FizViz project. It was the first time for all of our […]
FizViz – Physical Visualization Nexus FizViz began life as a “concept” project when we decided to enter the World’s Largest Arduino Maker Challenge, an event sponsored by Arduino, Microsoft, and Hackster.io. The original goal was to make it possible for a wider group of people to have access to analytics data, and to make really […]
SIGNUL: The World’s First Personal Beacon System Nexus Experiments with Bluetooth Low Energy were prominent amongst our very first projects at the IoT Design Shop. In particular, a relatively revolutionary device called the “TI Sensor Tag” opened the door for all kinds of interesting experiments and sensor projects. This small unit, released by […]
ConnectionMaker – Indoor Location System Nexus Bluetooth Low Energy proximity and location was one of our early areas of research at the IoT Design Shop. We did a number of experiments with signal strength, filtering, and estimation of distance based on tuned Bluetooth LE beacons that we developed in house. Although we determined […]
