Have you spotted THIS?

Let's Make Robots!

So i found this when i looked where members do live.
There is green colour in the logo!
Did you spot this before me?

We just have GOT to get into FPV and head tracking

Any - I repeat; ANY robot will only get better with head tracking and FPV. And while at it, why not wear a XYZ sensing glove.

No, wait, while we are at it, why not make a copy of yourself; You take a step, it takes a step, you look right, it looks to the right.. Or you drive a virtual steering wheel in front of you, while you have sensors on, and that controls the car.

Radu's Big Machine

Hi all,

This should be a something else but since it's not my creation I'll just praise the creator in a blog and if he ever finds time maybe he'll post on his own.

So last weekend Radu, a friend brought this to me:

Zifduino bootloader programming shield

When I first began working with Arduino I was amazed by the incredible things people were doing with the devices. After a couple of successes with my little UNO R3 I wanted to make some things using  "standalone"  chips. Following some tips from fellow Ardweenies I discovered this: http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/ArduinoToBreadboard

Robotix 2013 - Largest Robotics Fest in Asia

Technology Robotix Society is proud to present ROBOTIX 2013, its annual technological extravaganza, to be held during 1 – 4 February,2013 as a part of Kshitij, the annual Techno-Management Fest of IIT Kharagpur. With a wide array of challenging and innovative problem statements designed to test your robot building and programming skills to the fullest, and a substantial bounty up for grabs, this year's edition is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever before.

Controlling power to motor driver

Hi all,

I have a question about using the Rover 5 motor driver board. I understand that the VCC power supply must be connected before connecting the Vbat line to avoid burning out components. I'd like to have only a single power switch; I'd like to have the microcontroller first supply VCC with power and then supply Vbat with power. How could I do this? Which components could I use that would use the least power while the device is running?

The infamous Kalman Filter :)

So maybe any of you heard about it, but is there anyone who have made a working implementation?

Or eventually a nice site with a human readable explanation :) ?

Aww yeah! Yep you heard it right! it is an arduino clone. And a very cheap one. bought all the parts at an electronic components area in Malaysia called Jalan … Read more

Some empiric signal processing

I wanted to do something for my balancing robot even if i don't have the parts yet, so i decided that i could do some study on how to smooth the signal. I read aroung that many peoples who had a balancing robot working used some kind of filter becouse small noise on the readings of the sensor can compromise the stability of the robot. Some people used standard filters, some other used hand made custom hacks. Unluckly i haven't studied signal processing at school so the best i could do was reading about on Wikipedia and do some empiric tests.
