OK, I am officially confused. I have installed the GoogleTiles app and would like to play with it. I start my virtual bug, add an LCD, motion and GPS module…Now what?

How do I simulate motion for this app? Also, is the java frame that pops up supposed to emulate the LCD? How do I do something with this that would result in me seeing the tile loaded from google maps?

Thanks for your help.

I believe typing "motion" into the console after the ‘(:’ prompt will trigger a motion event.

The FlickrUppr walkthrough shows you up to simulate motion detection, but it is indeed entering ‘motion’ on the console:

Look for ‘Trigger a motion event by typing motion in the console view’ on that page.

Yep finsprings you got it. And for some added context, the 4 modules you are using in the Virtual BUG utilize the same Java interfaces (and OSGi services) as the real hardware modules. However since they are all virtual we needed some way of getting the relevant information to the module. In the case of Motion, we decided on extending the OSGi shell as a way of signaling that motion occurred.

Thanks, this helps. I never saw this tutorial for the app, and when checking the history I see that the page was only added yesterday.

I’ve modified GoogleTiles to react to button events instead of motion events. A howto has been posted on the wiki http://bugbeta.com/wiki/index.php/GoogleTiles_H… .
