Wipy 2.0 and save data on my pc, not in flash memory



  • Hi, i'm new on programming with python.
    I use wipy 2.0 and ESP 2.0. I use BNO055 to aquire data about pitch and roll.
    I use command:

       file_dati = open("dati.txt", "w")
    
       file_dati.write(repr(List[0:len(List)]))
    
       file_dati.close()
    

    But in this way the data are saved on flash memory of device.

    I need to save data or transfer them on my pc. Can you help me?

    it's very important for my thesis.
    thank you



  • @robert-hh said in Wipy 2.0 and save data on my pc, not in flash memory:

    Which BN055 module

    I was asking about the vendor and make of the BNO055 board.



  • @robert-hh I use Fusion mode and operating mode: NDOF.
    The connecting wires are about 60 cm.
    I have to use two I2C and collect data and wrote on a file with a sample rate of 50 Hz.
    But if I set a time.sleep(0.2) that I think means 50Hz, from a sample to another it has a big delay.
    So i try to increase baudrate as I tell you before.



  • @vflorio94 Which BN055 module are you using, and how long are the connecting wires?



  • @robert-hh It works at lower baudrate like 10K, 15K but for value higher then 20K it doesn't work.



  • @vflorio94 Does it work at lower baud rates? if yes, then maybe the pull-up resistors are missing. The SDA and SCL lines must have a pull-up resistor in the range of 4.7 kOhm. Sometimes they are built on the board, sometimes not. The ESP32 has internal pull-up resistors at about 30 kOhm, which is good for lower baud rates.



  • @robert-hh Thank you.
    unfortunately I have a new problem with wipy and I2C .

    In the library for I2C if i set baudrate to 100k it doesn't work.
    but in the data sheet of IMU it is written that it can work with a baudrate with a maximum of 400k.
    the error is this one:

      File "/flash/lib_imu.py", line 382, in get_euler
      File "/flash/lib_imu.py", line 318, in read_vector
    OSError: I2C bus error
    

    I don't know how i can solve this bus error. Do you have an idea about this topic?



  • @vflorio94 A simpler way to store and load is using the ujson module. So if you have a list of values like g, write it with:

    import ujson
    with open("data.txt", "w") as f:
        ujson.dump(g, f)
    

    and read it back with:

    with open("data.txt", "r") as f:
        g = ujson.load(f)
    

    In the micropython.lib, there is also the a pickle module.https://github.com/micropython/micropython-lib/tree/master/pickle



  • @robert-hh thank you, all the code that you wrote run correctly. I understand also your explanation.
    thank you a lot !!



  • Usign a generator instead of the loop, it can be written e.g. like:

    with open("data.txt", "r") as f:
        line = f.read()
        # now you have a list of one string per line
        g = [float(el) for el in line.strip().split(",")]
    

    or even shorter as

    with open("data.txt", "r") as f:
        g = [float(el) for el in  f.read().strip().split(",")]
    

    The last expression in the bracket is a little bit cryptic, to be read from left to right as:

    • read the line
    • strip of leading and trailing whitespace
    • split it at , into a list of numeric strings, which is the fed into the generator expression.


  • @robert-hh the data now are like this

    348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000 ,348.750000
    <class 'str'>
    

    so i do:

    f= open("/sd/dat.txt", "r").read()
    f.close()
    f1 = f.split(',')
    g = []
    for i in range(1, len(f1)):
        h = float(f1[i])
        g.append(h)
    


  • @vflorio94 Shortened version, not easy to read:

    with open("file.txt", "r") as f:
        list = f.readlines()
        # now you have a list of one string per line
        for index, item in enumerate(list):
            list[index] = [float(el) for el in item.strip("[]\n ").split(",")]
            # now list is a list of lists with numeric values
            # accessible with list[i][j]
    


  • @robert-hh Thank you, I didn't see your comment before. At the end I am succeded in a similar way, now i'll try also yours
    thank you very much



  • @vflorio94 In my previous post I showed a code snippet, if all data is in one line. If each bracket is in a separate line, then the code snippet is much simpler.

    f = open("file1.txt", "r")
    list = f.readlines()
    f.close()
    # now you have a list of one string per line
    for index, item in enumerate(list):
        item = item.strip("[]\n ").split(",")
        # now item is a list of numeric strings
        for i, el in enumerate(item):
            item[i] = float(el)
        list[index] = item
        # now list is a list of lists wirth numeric values
    


  • @robert-hh yes, i'll create a file in which I put one set of data in brackets in a line, then there is a way to extract a single data and do a control on it and then pass to the data in the next position?



  • @vflorio94 You can do something like:

    f = open("file.txt", "r")
    line = f.read()
    f.close()
    # now you have the full test in one string
    list = line.split("[")
    # now you have a list of three strings, and an empty one
    # remove the empty ones
    for index, item in enumerate(list):
        if len(item) == 0:
            del list[index]
    # convert to numeric value
    for index, item in enumerate(list):
        item = item.strip("] ").split(",")
        # now item is a list of numeric strings
        for i, el in enumerate(item):
            item[i] = float(el)
        list[index] = item
        # now list is a list of lists with numeric values
        # indexing by list[i][j]
    


  • @vflorio94 Can you create the file in a different format, like having one line for each set of data in brackets?



  • @robert-hh YEs, but i have a file.txt with this content

    
    [169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5, 169.5]  [0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.1875, 0.125, 0.1875]       [-177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.5625, -177.625, -177.5625] 
    

    I want to iterate data by data in this file and compare them with other value trough control 'if'.
    for example I want to use data in the first square brackets and step by step compare them with other numeric value, do you know a way to do this?
    I am not able to convert them in numeric value and compare them one by one, I know that i have to use a 'for' to pass all the value but I am not succeded.



  • @vflorio94 To read the data from a file, you could read it all in once, assumign f is the opened file, with:

    text = f.readlines()

    then text is a list of strings. That however will use a lot for RAM. You can also read line by line with:

    for line in f:
    # line is one line to be processed



  • @robert-hh thank you, I do it.
    another question, if I read data from a file.txt and I want to reuse this data, what is the way to import and/or assign them to a local variable?
    thank you
