Skjermmatrise som henger på EL0. 20 skjermer. Ovskjerm er skjermmatrisen på veggen ut mot hovedbygget. Den fungerer vanligvis som en "logg" for Blink, men kan også vise video, nettsider og rutetabeller for buss. Koden finnes på http://git.omegav.no/ovskjerm_scripts og er i all hovedsak skrevet i python. Scriptene krever en del eksterne biblioteker, men alt det er dokumentert på git sammen med koden. Denne wiki siden er i hovedsak for å dokumentere oppsettet av serveren og piene. På serveren ligger hele rpi installasjonen. Hver pi har en lokal versjon av uboot (en bootloader for embedded linux platformer). Når rpi starter uboot vil uboot spørre serveren om diverse filer, helt til den til slutt spør om å få et boot script som vi har lagd. RPI laster ned bootscriptet og kjører det. Bootscriptet laster ned kjernen og "devicetree" (om du ikke vet hva noen av de tingene er kan det absolutt anbefales og lese litt mer om det før du fortsetter i denne guiden). Når rpi har lastet ned de to filene så vil den kjøre bootprosessen som er beskrevet i bootscriptet. Når kjernen starter så velger vi at pien skal hente root filsystemet fra en delt nfs mappe. Når operatisystemet er lastet inn logger pien seg automatisk inn i konsolen, og da blir .bash_profile kjørt, som starter x-serveren. Når x starter med openbox kjøres et autostart script som starer ovskjerm_node_server.py.

  • Write a systemd service that launches ovskjerm_control_server.py and keep respawning it if it dies.

Setup on RPI

  • Make two partitions on the sdcard (see the guide on installing archlinux arm)
  • Build uboot from source (use mainline) http://elinux.org/RPi_U-Boot#Mainline. Move the u-boot.bin to kernel.img on the sdcard's boot partition.
  • Install: sudo apt-get install openbox xorg feh omxplayer python3 python3-pip unclutter
  • Set XAUTHORITY to tmp as environmental variabel. The xauthority is needed because we are mounting / as read-only (/etc/profile and in openbox environmental). ~/.xinitrc should look like this:


 1 export XAUTHORITY=/tmp/.Xauthority
 2 exec openbox-session



  • Make sure you use fbset -xres 1280 -yres 1024 some seconds before stariting xorg because uboot is currently a bit fucked (08-10-2016). This might not be needed with later releases of uboot. ~/.bash_profile should be something like this:


 1  -f ~/.bashrc  && . ~/.bashrc
 2 if [ -z "$DISPLAY" ] && [ $(tty) == /dev/tty1 ]; then
 3     fbset -xres 1280 -yres 1024
 4     sleep 3
 5     startx
 6 fi



  • Use raspi-config to enable automatic login to console. (then ~/.bash_profile gets sourced and Xorg starts)
  • Openbox will autostart a couple of scirpts by editing ~/.config/openbox/autostart to this:


 1 xset s off -dpms                                                     #Disable blanking (screensaver)
 2 feh --bg-scale /home/pi/blink/wallpaper.png                          #set wallpaper to this img
 3 unclutter -idle 1 -jitter 2 -root -display :0 &                      #hides the mouse
 4 /bin/sh /home/pi/ovskjerm_scripts/scripts/startup_ovm_pi_fsm.sh &  #starts the ovmatrix script in the background

Robotkrig

Scripts from 2017 to generate images from google drive and spreadsheets during Robotkrig. All files are stored in /home/medlem/robotkrig on indigo.ed.ntnu.no. These scripts are executed from crontab every minute.


  1. These are used during robowars to automatically update the pictures


  • * * * * /home/medlem/robotkrig/googlesheet-to-image.py
  • * * * * /home/medlem/robotkrig/tournament-to-image.py

googlesheet-to-image.py generates images for final result, fagdom and hinder and stores these in the nfs share /srv/blink/ which the pis can access. tournament-to-image.py generates the tournament result and stores it as image in /srv/blink

To set up, uncomment the lines in crontab and execute /home/medlem/robotkrig/robotkrig.sh which will tell all the pis what image to show.

2018-Feb, these scripts should be moved to ovskjerm_scripts so that we have version control.
