    • Hello,
      1-Edit the config file “service_D_OpenCv.config”
      2-Modify: False to True.
      3-Save the modification
      4-Double click START_INMOOV
      Opencv is now running in MyRobotLab.
      You can check if the camera gets activated by saying: “Camera On”

The correct one has some warping on the bottom and I think I need a good flat bottom to get good adhesion when this part is glued.

          The Jumper EZpad 3 was 212 x 130 x 9mm.

          • Mine is Jumper EZpad mini 5

            207 mm. X 120 mm.(WxL) and 9.8 mm. Thickness, I also measure by ruler.

            • Okay I had a moment to create an adapter.
              Hopefully it fits, it’s always a bit difficult to create without testing, but I guess it should be okay.
              Jumper5Adapter.stl
              IntelRealSense driver
              The JumperEZpad 5 is really smaller than the model 3, so this adapter will not fill the surrounding gaps, but only allow to mount the tablet. Nothing fancy.

    Would you provide me the details on what kind of flat cables to buy and what type red/black wire to purchase.

    For flat ribbons, I need to know the width and number of strands and length of cables.

    For wire, I need to know what gauge wire to use for electric hookup.

    I want to make sure I purchase the correct thing.

    Thanks!

    • Gael,

      I received my nerve board kits. Thanks!

      I see all the connectors are the same size, so does that mean that all the flat ribbon should be the same width, 7 pin?

      Thanks!

      • Hello,
        You need some 14 wire ribbon for the connectors.
        What I personnaly do, is buy some 30 wire ribbon and split it manually. It’s cheaper and easier to find on internet.
        10 gauge automotive(black,red) will fit tightly in the XT60 connectors.
        You can get some 12 gauge and will be fine for fitting as well.
