Docking Station for IsoBot02
August 25, 2009
Good evening, LMR! Last month or so I had some time to do little progress on my Docking station for IsoBot02. I have fixed IR beacon inside the base. Picaxe 28x1 makes it continiously emit signals.
And after hours of searching around my house, I found proper housing for IR reciever to be fixed on back of 02. Yes, he will be doing reverse parking :)
Now comes the software side of things. I managed to Make 02 find direction to the beacon. It was fairly easy to do. You can see the results on video. But when I moved into working with compass I got whole bunch of wierd actions from Rover... Better to say he doe not want to perform any action... So far I figured out the problem could be in trying to drive 4 servos and communicating with compass module via I2C simultaneously... This is my next taskfor now...
