Driller Shark: Auger (Sumo)
Driller Shark has been upgraded, and here are some pictures for your visual enjoyment.
The original Driller shark base.
Now souped up with a higher board mount. Right now it looks too high, but with the sensor in place it looks fine.
New board based off the Samm version 2.
I changed the motor drivers from the MC3387 to this new one. The part number is BD6232. Two reasons for the switch are: The MC3387 is obsolete and the maxon motors would trigger a shutdown state in the driver.
New sensors. Got these off ebay from Sure electronics. They were cheap. The downsides of them are it doesn't give a distance reading and it is slightly slower than I would like.
Mild steel bar added for weight because I had a problem with being too light in Toronto.
Drumroll please....... DRILLER SHARK: AUGER!!!!
