Take picture with camera of Pleo rb
« on: May 10, 2012, 08:00:02 AM »

Hi all,
i need your help.
How can i program that my Pleo rb takes a picture with his camera and save it to the SD-Card.
I've tried to take a picture after a touch of his head. So in the sensor.p file:
        case SENSOR_HEAD:
        {
             new file_name[] = "samplefile";
      camera_take_picture(file_name);
         }
But it doesn't work.

Several comments:

"camera_take_picture" returns a boolean result, it should be checked.

Unfortunately "camera_take_picture" only starts the process of taking and saving a picture. It is a slow process, and you need to keep checking a special (undocumented) property to see when it is done.

Also, be careful with strings stored as data. Unless you need data in a variable, use a literal string. Otherwise it wastes valuable RAM. Also be sure you have "#pragma pack 1" near the start of the source file.

Here is some code I use in my test program:

Code: [Select]
#include "Camera.inc"

//IF NEEDED
native bool: camera_take_picture(const file_name[]);
 // some versions of SDK do not have it in Camera.inc

#pragma pack 1

...
   // save the picture
    if (camera_take_picture("A:one.img")) // save on SD card
    {
        PlaySound(snd_cap_one); // shutter sound
        // wait until done saving
        while (get(property_cam_img_progress) != 0)
        {
            yield();
        }
        // now the picture is saved
        PlaySound(snd_camera_saved);
    }
    else
    {
        PlaySound(snd_capture_error);
    }

Hello guys!
Sorry Dca, You try it? it works?

Hello,

I trying your code and the more strange is that code runs once of ten.
It's extremly strange, something occure about "while", don't reproduce me "camera_saved".


while (get(property_cam_img_progress) != 0)
        {
            yield();
        }
        // now the picture is saved
        PlaySound(snd_camera_saved);

Any idea??

Thanks.

I don't know if there is anyone around on the forums any more who attempts pleo programming.  All I can suggest is maybe send PleoPet a personal message and see if she can help you out.

Wait... Pleo RB can take pictures? Does it need a micro sd card? How much does one cost, anyway?

Yes PleoRb can take pictures. And now my Code works fine, i have some Problems which i don't understand, but i need some one who know about programming the pleo.

Sorry that my Questions on two diffrent forums, but maybe i can find somebody that can help me.

@Echo538
my micro sd-card costs about 8 and is 4 GB, but you must try the micro sd-card, because the recommendation is for a card less than 2 GB.
And the pictures are very very low quality

Here is one

Sadly as Kat said, there are no programmers here anymore. Pleopet is your best bet, many of those who posted here are no longer active members. Good luck, do share if you find out anything.
