This is my first post to this forum, maybe time to let you see my robotic project.
Five months ago i planned to make a two wheeled balancing platform.
I wanted to make something with a n old asus eeepc, two usb i/o cards, imu sensors (adxl203,adxrs300), home brew motor drivers and some nimh batteries.
And this is the first result of my work: (my kids call it bliepbot)
I had some problems with finding motors.
On the video i use cheap chinese motors bought on ebay. (lot of sound, to many backlash, no encoders).
Later i tried emg30 motors. (unsuccessfull, plastic gearwheels broke on tuning pid).
Now i ordered the 'Parallax Motor Mount and Wheel Kit with Position Controller'.
I am looking forward on recieving the Kit.

Today i recieved the Parallax motor and wheel kit.
i like to share some pictures of it:
next step is to place them under bliepbot, make some finetuning and implement the position feedback,
to be continued...
