Drawing a heat map
Anonymous  [2 posts]

I need help. I'm trying to take temperature readings and generate a sort of heat map.
Something like this: http://hackaday.com/2013/12/01/diy-thermal-imaging-camera/

Is there anyway to do this within Roborealm?

Thank you

Assuming that you have a sensor that you can swipe across an area pixel bypixel you could read at each point and assign that value to a pixel. That would create the desired image ... slowly, but nevertheless, it would work.

If you look in any of the  programming modules (VBScript, CScript, etc.) you can get the current image pixels and reassign them as needed. First I'd work up the pan/tilt system that one would use to sweep the sensor over an area to create such a map. Is this more or less the setup that you are using?

I have two infrared thermometers on top of pan/tilt mechanisms, I can serial write the temperature data from the microcontroller to roborealm, but that's where I'm stuck. I'm thinking maybe writing a cscript to take the incoming temp values and draw a heat map but as a mechanical engineer it's not my strong suit
