Real-time enough? About PWMs and shaky servos

We are currently working on the next incarnation of our software and hardware platform for vehicles controlled over the Internet. Among others, we decide to investigate the way to control our robot without micro-controllers. In fact, BeagleBoard has a lot of GPIOs available. In addition, three hardware PWM generators and I2C bus should be enough at least to control the tank with camera, compass, GPS, and sonar.

Finds things to play a beat on.

WiiCamera Break Out Fail (Not my fault)

It seems that God is not without a sense of humor...

So, I had a bit of a run there for a while of producing boards which later became coasters. Bound and determined to not let that happen again, I set out to design my WiiCamera break out boards. I carefully layed out the circuit, breadboarded each and every part, and then designed a neat, simple PCB around the breadboard circuit.

Okay this is just a concept at this point, but If it generates enough interest i'll begin finishing the design. I want to take the Sanguino, Arduinos Middle child … Read more

Robot Party - Motion & Distance Sensing Part 1

At last night's Robot Party the theme was motion & distance sensing! We had a great turnout with some really fantastic knowledge shared about ultrasonic and IR sensors. You can see all the video clips in this playlist, also see some screenshots in this flickr set.

Jinnarin's third robot (YDM clone). (Updated: 9-1-11)

Hi all. I have been away for some time (health reasons), but I am finally back and starting on my third robot. You can see my first robot here and here, I never made a page for my second robot, as it was just a remake of the start here robot (maybe it will make a special appearance).

I telecommute between Austin and Dallas and have wanted a telepresence robot for a couple of years. I finally got the courage to build one (not being much of a … Read more

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:
