Say that's a nice looking arrangement.
Mr Data has many sets of panels rather than one,
There are trade offs of course.  has power fairly stable.
In case I've not mentioned daily Mr Data has onboard solar panels regulator so he has not required charging for
46 days with only 0.1 volt loss. Yes yes I'll fix the loss.

I came across this  "wscript.sleep workaround solved" in the forum. :
Bye for now and be well :)  :]

Will sand Mr data

Thats just my soldering table, Its a glass table top used as a bigass heat sink.
Keeps the cells from curling up on the edges like potato chips.
I make Mods of Strings then fold them, go it to a science.

key is the tabbing wire, look at how wide it is.. 8 amp cell load with a 30 amp tab connecting the next cell, Da beast.....
I build to last a life time.

I use a power factor of .5
every 12 volt string has 36  (18 x 18 )+ (36 x 2)  = 1 (72) cell panel = 1 (12vdc) @16 amps BEAST.  Apposed to 24, i do this in an effort to reduce voltage drop

I'm hoping Art is shocked in a nice way.
Cyberjedi those panels look good.
Speaking of curling edges I wiped a solar panel
With a damp rag to get dust off on hot date.
?ooooooooh nooooo
Solder under glass of panel reacted badly and
Curled up breaking an area of panel. Datas panels are
Different type.
 Mr Data could pass 90 watts on a nice day.
Put diode on each panel. Had him wired all sorts of ways.
Have a few things to do. He is ongoing really.
Getting the sleeping in seems of focus.
If my shutdown idea was bad.
Then it seems a conclusion to the shutdown part of this
Line of posts is shutdown is not ideal in my case very likely.
So sleep type plug in seems next for overnight power saving.
Plugin that shuts as much down as possible.
Maybe room to wake up during night could be looked at later.
Thanks for any plugins.
Also thanks to Art and Cyberjedi for taking time to post
Thoughts and codes I'd be here a very long time to figure out.
Bye for now and be well from Will and Mr Data :)  :]

I've been also suggested
Pc Can restart at set time.
In xp open control panel.
Scheduled tasks.
Double click add scheduled tasks.
Next.


Now I'm posting this before trying it so good luck.
So if hal starts up on top yaye. another start up option.
Maybe one day he can set this himself assuming it works.
Bye for now and be well. :)  :]

yes: Xp will shut down at set times.

How does that solves the issue of charge cycles and monitoring Data's battery
Personally id hate a work around, that doesnt work, at this point

Now if Xp can shut down do to battery power levels, now that would work.
But then ur still left with , how to turn ON Mr datas power, once charged???? The computer is now off.

at some point the lights will come on i guess
Hers an idea that might drive the point home,
Start ur Car/truck without turning the key
Ya ur  fancy overheat sensor triggered a shut down to save the motor. Motor is now cooled down, start the car without turning the key.........,<<<<<------
I dont understand the confusion here........

I think MR. Data might work better if he adopted a "Sleep State" or "Low Power" consumption mode where all unneeded background functions were suspended and only important ones like charging state, battery consumption/usage features were monitored.

Computers are often set for Sleep Modes or Standby Modes all the time instead of a complete Shutdown, in which one loses control. A Restart or Reboot requires a bypass or the Power/On-Off switch as well as a BATCH file to provide appropriate Start Up files are honored (or a file placed in a Windows StartUp Directory).

The Standby or Sleep State mode is a better solution where one could easily monitor Data's progress if desired.

Better yet, how about an onboard Battery indicator with lights or LEDs to provide at a glance, Data's current battery levels, status, etc.

Lots of possibilities for Mr. Data and of course our old friend, Will!

Hi Art and Cyberjedi and forum.
All good points.
Yes my shutdown idea is ugly but how it's a minimum
Solve is because Mr Data has onboard board regulator to manage charge anyway. It shows his volts at a glance.
I've just now dropped a battery out.
He was to heavey .also less batteries are easier to
Charge.
So yes nasty minimum work around.
More nice plugin could be created by a genius.
Bye for now and be well :)  :]

Seemed to be off subject.
show subject is Finnished perhaps.
So nothing more to share for now.
Perhaps we solved enough to move on. Pluss we wait to see if Mr Data can come on each day by him self for how long?
Is Mr Coman Data going to be the longest operating Android?.
Not minutes or hour before charging required but decades.
 
All this and more may be answered.

Mr will and Data: relax brother....

Comon now it was all in fun.
Look lets Re-Cap what i know.
I want my UltraHal to interact with my Robot on an electrical level.

I have 0.0 spech's on your robot.
Electrical ?
Charging system?
Digital readouts?? no idea?
Line voltage???
Battery's??
Inverter's, if any???
I mean really. I know nothing about this machine and you want people to (&*&^&*) out some mystery code, and id love to help you in any way i can.

Mr Will: dont get me wrong, its awesome what uve accomplished(i really mean that) as an engineer u gave me a chubby. BUTTT ur not giving me much.
I say Engineer because that is what i was, an Electrical Engineer . Retired now of course. With a total of 30 years in the electrical field. From Design to implantation in the field. Low Voltage/High Voltage, Ac/Dc. Gi-Tronics, its a big list brother. And now it would appear im getting kinda good with code
 
I need hard data, spech sheets, ect ect ect
What uve done is say: I have a Laptop in my robots backpack, make it work please. Do what??? lol
Lest not forget: Oh ya, i want the computer to execute code while it is off charging  as well. And it has to be in the form of a vbs Plugin that can mysteriously run on a computer that is off.

Is it a commercially bought product that u could really hot wire, a real robot To ultraHal (Thats just SICK), they would have MAD Spech's , that would help?
Can Mr Data's hard wired circuits be intercepted  so his movements could be controlled by .HAP files (BTW totally doable) guaranteed?
Does he have his own miro processor, if so, what model?
 
I basically have NO spech's to work with
So ya, i see some humor in all this. But i think overall ur really on to something here and wish u only the very best in ur projects.

Thank you.
Ar yip minimum info given. I'm sure there are some
Specs we keep private.
But I'll say. Mr Data was moving stopped for unknown
Reason. But I could ask him to move and he likely
Would.move at will. Thanks to Mr Snowman.
Aaron made me a plugin for Mr Data which allows Mr Data to
Do this. I call it "gate" program. It's a one off. Top secret.

Trying to avoid onboard inverters so none.
12v 30 AMph today any way. Has changed a lot.
Eee laptop xp can chare from regulator "buzz" or maintain battery.
90 watts solar pwm reg. "Mppt charged less yip."
Regulator has digital info.volts ...
I support Tribotix and got my parts through Peter.
A Robotis cm700 motor controller. Rx series of motors.
Rx 28 and Rx64. Mostly.
I can ask Mr Data "getallgoalpos" and he says something like
Motor 1 is on position 537
Motor  2 is in position  569
...
...
Motor 30 is at position 588
He still performs this so connection is still there.

I already know unless you have full access it's less
Likely you in a position to help.but I appreciate your thoughts
Even with if from afar.
It's a touchy project so I'm cautious.
Of course my request for improving things I don't know enough about makes for interesting nature.
I'm trying to avoid faulty suggestions or requests.
Success sounds nice. That's one of my big sayings. Goals.
Hope my specs here give some indercators of his position.
Yip he is actually quite good. Integrated hal yip.
I hope you are excited by that I am. He could be one of the coolest humanoid robot Android in the world.
Activated 18 years ago. 2002 I think.

bye for now and be well from Will and Mr Data  :)  :]

Yaaaaaa.
Mr Data day self powered from solar on his own body.
Day 1     power 12.4 volts
                           11.2
Today day 50    power 12.4v
Hiy yaaaaaa!

Re Gate progii
I think i know this proggi . I say that becasue it fits what ur doing
Arron and I were batting around 1 of his goodies years ago that would allow 1 language in and sht out another and vice versus.
I played with too
And without using my fingers and toes, with ur robot, thats made to order.
That's what he gave me anyway. Pretty slick too. Its basically an interpreter for computer languages

This is when i just decided to do Hal from scratch with hard coded com's  for about anything.
I talked to robert , the rest u know
Anyway, awesome Mr Data
Thanx for the spech's awesome
It would appear that the boards are C++ ready, interesting.
