Hey there BUG Community,

With the hardware getting out into your hands, I just wanted to give a quick outline of what to expect from a normal BUG boot process. I will put this information on the Community Wiki shortly.

When you power on your BUGbase by pushing and releasing the power switch, you should see an animation on the BUGbase LCD similar, though perhaps longer in duration, to that below. Note that this animated gif loops. Your BUG should not.



The dark static boot logo will appear for approximately 25 seconds before the animation begins. At about the same time that the animated BUG logo appears, you may hear a series of beeps sounding from the BUGbase speaker. The animation repeats for approximately 10 seconds, before the clock and module icons for connected modules will display. The animation above shows the icons for all four modules, which should display if all four modules are attached.

If you have your BUGview module attached in slots 1 or 3, (with no applications loaded) you will see xserver running, with xeyes in the upper right hand corner:




:wink:

Thanks John-
Is there a simple way to also confirm the proper functionality of the other three modules (gps, motion, camera)?

Chris,

A preliminary indication of correct module functionality is that the icons display on the BUGbase LCD when snapped in. For example, if all of the modules are attached, you will see something like this (though the ordering may differ)



If you have networking set up you can verify further:

If the BUGcam2MP module is attached, and the icon is displaying on the BUGbase LCD,

http://10.10.10.10/service/picture

If the BUGlocate module is attached, and the icon is displaying on the BUGbase LCD, going to the url below will show you the GPS location if your module has received a location fix from a set of satellites. Signal strength, especially indoors, will vary.

http://10.10.10.10/service/location

If the BUGmotion module is attached, and the icon is displaying on the BUGbase LCD, going to the urls below will verify their functionality. Refreshing the pages periodically should show differences in the motion timestamp, and moving your BUG should show differences in the accelerometer reads.

http://10.10.10.10/service/motion

and

http://10.10.10.10/service/acceleration

If the BUGview module is attached, you should see the screenshot above and the icon on your BUGbase LCD.

sweet. I guess I didn’t think to check to see if the bug was running an active webserver. duh.

Yeah, this is going to be a ton of fun.
Thanks.

The modules' web services can be very useful. :D I designed an application requiring 3 BUGs to communicate with one another, and they do this through the modules' handy-dandy WebService interface. I'll post it on BUGnet , though it would take some tweaking to get it to work with Virtual BUGs. (unless you've purchased three BUGs, that is :wink: ).

A basic application to demonstrate how to publish a WebService is OSGiLogWS. That application allows you to see the results of the OSGi log. This helps with debugging your own BUG applications.

As a nice way to test you can (assuming you're on OS X or *NIX) do:

while true; do curl http://10.10.10.10/service/motion; sleep 1; clear; done

or

while true; do curl http://10.10.10.10/service/acceleration; sleep 1; clear; done

and then you can move the bug around and watch the values change in your terminal window.

An update on this: as of R1.3 (October 2008) X renders on both framebuffer devices, meaning that in slots 0,2 and slots 1,3 there are separate X instances. A total of 2 Xservers are running.

Isn’t it funny how we www.coachfactorystoreec.com/ Coach Factory Store always want what we can’t have? The girl with the round and pert backside wishes that her rear were 5 times smaller. Meanwhile, the girl with the non existent posterior wishes to achieve a larger butt. Well, if the grass is greener on the other side, just water yours! If you’ve got a small behind, you can create the illusion of a larger one with butt enhancing jeans. Here’s how to do it. Look for light weight denim – This material is very stiff and heavy. If you try to stuff a flat butt into denim jeans, it will only create a flatter looking behind. A little stretch goes a long way – Your butt enhancing jeans should additionally contain some stretch. A mixture of 98 percent cotton and 2 percent lycra is best. This combination of lycra and cotton, especially when it’s in a nice tight-weave fabric that’s fitted through the hip and thigh area will help lift your buttocks. Too much lycra and your jeans may start to ripple like a pair of leggings. If there’s not enough cotton content, there won’t be enough structure to hold you up. It’s all in the pockets – The most effective trick for creating the illusion of a bigger butt is to choose jeans with flap pockets. The added bulk of the flap will enhance and add dimension to your tiny tush. True Religion is notoriously famous for their flap pocket designs. You can also try Hudson, Rock & Republic, Frankie B and Paige for addition flap pocket styles. Pocket placement – If you’re not a fan of flap pockets, or if you’ve already bought too many of them, you can also try denim with regular pockets. Be sure to aim for a pair with smaller pockets that sit higher and this will help make your rear look lifted. Cut is also important – Look for jeans with a slight tapering at www.coachfactoryonliness.com/ Coach Factory Online the knee, such as a straight leg or skinny style. This cut will make your bum look a bit larger in comparison to the rest of your body. Great styles to try are True Religion Billy, Julie or Stella, Siwy Harmah or Rose, and Hudson Emily or Paige. How low can you go – Actually, you don’t want to go too low when it comes to the jean rise. The goal is to project more, not less. A pair of low rise denim will only reduce the size of your rear. Instead, opt for a pair with a medium rise. Color me right – Since dark colors minimize, dark denim and indigo will create a slimming effect. You do not want this kind of effect on your barely there behind! Try to find light colored or medium blue denim. Grey is very flattering and will also work. Like a great bra, butt enhancing jeans can also lift and www.coachfactoryoutletusa.com/ Coach Factory Outlet separate what little you have. So it wasn’t in your genes to have a nice, round bottom. Big deal. Be happy with what you’ve got and just improvise!
