Hello World!

Hello evrybody!

I am so happy to be a member of LMR, I will post all my robot projects soon.

But let's start at the beginning, shall we?

I started making robots almost two years ago, it was summer break and I was bored. The main reason I started is I like physics and programming and I thought robots are the best way of combining the two. And it's fun. I started making robots and I will NEVER stop. I want to learn more and more and that's what I do with every project I build.

I Found Some Awesome Joysticks

Just a quick heads-up.

I found quite possibly the most awesome collection of joysticks around. I have yet to get my hands on one, but man --they look good, nice mounting and multi-multi axis. Some of them are X-Y, some are X-Y and button and some are X-Y button AND twist!

Very cool.

They are here at ServoCity.

Why do we make?

Why do hobbiests make things?  Or more pertinent to LMR - why do hobbiests make robots?

LMR SWAG

Apparently there exists a sum of (200$) to spend on producing LMR swag. So let us discuss and decide what to produce.

Possibilities:


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

Cutting Acrylic sheet

I've been asked how to cut acrylic with a hot wire cutter - I made my own and there are a few plans for how to do this on instructables etc. This was my take on the idea which I find works OK for me... - see the file attached

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:
