Solar Charger for my robot

I have placed several solar cells on the top cover of my robot, Shrödinger.

I noticed that for various reasons such as shadows falling on some cells, or one side being closer to a light, that the cells did not charge at the same rates. Solar batteries do not work well if they are allowed to backfeed the current from one to another. Consequently, I used diodes in each string of two to block this backfeeding.

You may already be aware of this but I thought it might be useful to Arduino Nano users .. Something to be aware of when deciding on a Nano Shield: Recently, I … Read more

Ideas for "portable" or "backpack-ready" robot

I find myself more and more out in the non-robot-speaking world telling people that I "build robots". From there, there is a long pause and then me, stuttering through a terrible explanation of what these "robots" actually are. I have tried words like "electronics hobbyist" and "educational robots" and "classroom settings" --I have even tried "hardware developer specializing in the domestic,hobbyist and educational fields". Its usually a tough crowd though.

Control Servos With PC.

Hello. I understand that this is a very broad question, and I have been looking into options but am confused as people tend to start getting quite technical with their answers rather quickly.

I am very very new to robotics, and would like to learn how to control servo motors via a PC, as in how to rotate the motor to different degrees around its axis. Ideally I am after a way that can control many servos at once.

Creating a Microcontroller from Scratch

So i want to make a basic first robot and i understand what to do with an already built microcontroller but as a challenge i actually want to build a microcontroller from SCRATCH.

Yes i understand that it's a tough thing to start off with but my plan is to understand how everything works by actually doing it. I'm currently working towards an electrical engineering degree so i know basic terminology or i can look up anything new.
