My first Arduino SHR
October 22, 2011
Hello LMRians. I'm now super exited as most of my robot parts have finally arrived!
These parts are going to be used for my first SHR. The brain, if you would like to know, is an Arduino-based microcontroller.
It is indeed the Ubotino Controller V3 and measures at a mouth-gaping (for me that is) 5 x 5 cm!
This board can be bought by our well known Ro-Bot-X at his online shop : http://robotxdesigns.ca/
Here are some very bad pictures of the parts :
1. Ubotino Controller V3
2. Ubotino (size comparison)
3. Pre-uploaded blink sketch works! It's alive!!!
4. GM9 and wheels. Ooh! Blue!
5.GM9 (size comparison)
6.Sharp GP2Y0A21YK IR sensor. (Afraid to unpack due to fears of ESD)
7.A badly abused parcel. (By me) Ooh... what do you think is inside?
8.Aww... their my first servos. They look so snug as if in their nest.
9.Here they are again. (Better view) I see they have left the nest.
10.What my SHR should look like. (Lol) Looks like a broke down car...
Well, thats all of them. Now all I have to do is wait for tomorrow, when my long-awaited FTDI
cable will arive. Then I can get down to business...
Aaron to LMR. Do you copy? The FTDI cable has landed! I repeat, the FTDI cable has landed!
I'm now doing various experiments with my Ubotino aka. Arduino! Look forward to seeing my robot
on the robot list a week or two later!
