Towards a auto-aiming servo controled directional wifi antenna

I'm planning a project to get an auto-aiming directional wifi antenna working to provide a long-distance repeater for a boat at anchor connecting to access points we don't control.I think this is a robot, but a simple one.  I think it's a robot because it senses its environment and responds to it.  Sadly it won't be very pretty but it might be useful.  It will definitely be fun ;)

A ridiculously powerful Arduino form factor board

Clicking around, I found this PIC32-based board.  It's the same form factor as an Arduino Mega board, but it's powered by a PIC32 running at 80MHz.  This is an 80MHz MIPS CPU too (a RISC CPU you'll see all over the place, and is somewhat similar to ARM) that has integrated USB and Ethernet support.  Not to mention 512k of flash and 128k of SRAM.  That's a lot of horsepower for a little board.  And it's only $50, that's not bad at all.

It is the Same DAGU arm in the prevous posts, but the controller is now different. The controller board is Roboduino … Read more

Robot Mesh Network

Hi there!

I haven't been on LMR in a long time... here's a video of my robot mesh network working. It's been a while in development. ;)

Planning to make a tutorial for it, and I will post it here, eventually. Woohoo!

Skip ahead to the 6:30 mark to avoid the boring debugging (yay for unedited videos!)

The embedded video isn't working for me, so here it is: http://youtu.be/KSGt83BzX74

Sorry for the updates - Google video

Google hosted it's own video service way back when I started posting on LMR.

I used to like Google's service better than Youtube, because it was free of ads, and had a better player - so I used that to many videos.

At the time I also thought there was a better future for Google than Youtube. Well, later Google bought Youtube, and now they are shutting down their own video service.

MyRobotLab Plays Chess with Patrick?

Hi,

This is a blog post for PM and anyone else interested.  I have been doing many updates to mrl, and have begun working on some tutorial videos.  Patrick Mccabe and I spoke a couple times regarding hooking up his great chess robot to mrl for a game engine.

Brain wave controlled CAT EAR...

These JP people really have lots of strange ideas. I have hacked one of these brain toys but I dout the accuracy from those sensors. It's more like randomize the output for me.


Note: You can follow some projects some of the time, but you cannot follow all the projects all the time.

Anyone know about machine learning on Arduino?

I saw this code about Neural net on an Arduino here: http://robotics.hobbizine.com/arduinoann.html

and would like to know how I could apply it to my latest robot DuckBot so that it could figure out how get back on it's feet

on it's own instead of me having to code explcitely to do that. I have one sensor that currently says if angle of sensor indicates < 145 degrees then robot has fallen. It uses 3 servos to get back up on its feet.

Any ideas greatly appreciated.

Quadruped Sneak Peak!

In the Grapes of Wrath, there was a turtle that had a lot of symbolism, and in English class, you can basically do anything for the final project. So I thought, what the heck, I'll just play my strengths! Below is a rough CAD using 3d-printed parts and MG996R servos. Electronics are not really shown, shell is not missing (like there's a CAD of a salad bowl out there), and the head has been remodified to have a more "turtle" look. Photos of the final product coming soon.
