Online Tools & Tutorials

Building a robot is not always easy, especially if you don't have any previous experience or people to help you or guide you. LMR is in a perfect place to help others online and the more tools and tutorials a user has access to the better. We've put together a few over the years and if you know of any or even want to make your own, add them in the comments, and we'll add them to the main post. We'll also take a look on LMR to see if this type of comprehensive "Tools & Tutorials" post has been done before and integrate them all into a mega post.

Botboarduino drivers

Ok guys it's been a while since I've been on I'm glad everything is picking back up.

I recently had to wipe my computer after getting a virus. Which means I lost all my drivers and code and etc. I managed to get arduino up and running but my botboarduino needs drivers to work. I'm kinda freaked out about catching another virus and I can't seem to find the correct drivers for ft232 uart. I tried one place but it keeps asking me for a password to open it. And when I point the device manager it refuses to see the zip file.

My artificial neuron approach

February 12, 2015

A single artificial neuron can represent some simple Boolean functions like OR, AND or NAND and some like XOR not, because a single artificial neuron can only learn linearly separable mappings.

Example. Perceptron for the AND function:
