The device uses 2 ldrs. It is programmed to check if any of them is low(I mean not receiving light). If so, then it checks if now the other one is low. Based on … Read more

COSMA - Update 1

In the meantime I named the robot astronaut Cosma, a maiden name, ancient Greek for Cosmos. Below you'll find a more specific design study. I think I will 3-D print the main body and the head. I've furthermore tested a FSR (force sensing resistor) as a kind of pain receptor and the ArduEye.

hi every one!!!

Reading Words off Pages and Walls using OCR, Start of Indoor Localization

Today my robot read its first words with its own eyes!  from around 8ft away!

Got Tesseract OCR going on the bot.  Its reading words close up and from distance with large fonts.  This will be the start of my indoor localization system.  Bot will be able to determine what room it is in and where it is within the room to some degree, by remembering what is written where in the house and using it as landmarks for knowing its position, with a little geometry.

I'll post some video of this in action as soon as its polished.

Wild Thumper Controller - Packaged Software has Issues

If you are trying to used the Dagu motor controller with their Wild Thumper vehicle, which is great, but can't get it to respond properly to a RC tranmitter, make the following changes to the software. Get off D0 and D1 and move to D9 and D10, which are PWM channels. You don't want a PWM repetative pulses (every 22ms from a Spektrum transmitter) to clobber your serial interface when loading programs. This is why you get a sync error from the compiler if you follow the manual.

Well, I stumbled across this site and watched a few video's and got all inspired. I've been planning to make a fully autonomous robot for the last few months but … Read more

Service Droid

Working for DAGU means I need to try and design products that are not just cool to look at or play with but are also affordable and easy to use for the beginer. Sadly this balance is not easy to acheive. Usually more fun / cool functions means more complexity and cost.

Processing mapping project

Project verview: 

 

mapping system using serial comms and processing 

 

 

I can do the coding and datbase side of things, hardware will be dependant on everyones robots but i use arduino and plan to go n to a beagle board i nthe long run and Cris uses pic so we should be able to make this pretty portable for everyones projects.

 

At the moment im working on a nice GUI(Graphical User Interface) to make it easier to see whats happening and hopefully cut down on development time.

 

Ideas anyons time :D
