Competencia Nacional de Robótica Lasalle 2011 (Highlights of the National Competition of Robotics Lasalle)

Here I leave a very few highlights of the Competencia Nacional de Robótica Lasalle, that took place last Saturday.

My first Arduino SHR

 

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 :

Making Halloween Decorations

Making Halloween Decorations!

 

I always wanted to make a robot arm so I bought a Halloween werewolf severed arm to make into a art bot robot arm.

I then chopped it up so that I can actuate the rubber parts.

 

Here's the servo's hot glued in on some foam board.

 

For Halloween I Gave My Robot a Brain, or Fun With a Backpropagation Neural Network

I’ve long been fascinated by the concept of artificial intelligence and its application to robotics.

TOP SECRET PROJECT RNGTN

Welcome LMR members, to my newest robotic top secret project, THE PROJECT RNGTN, which is not top secret anymore.

so what about it? well i have created this to see if my analogue neural network circuit's gonna work which will be using as it's brain, and i also created this as my desktop pet, but why orangutans? well orangutans are being endangred in our times and they look funny.

My parts

Yes! My parts arrived today and now i got them.

There are over 400 parts in this box (not include picaxe things):

There are ldrs,resistors,electric capacitors,ceramic capasitors,motor driver,08M,transistors,leds,axle,wires and lots of other things what i can use on robots. But still i have to order more parts, motors,breadboard and battery holders.

 


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

Biped Howto: Moving servos

+++ UPDATE (12-march-2014): Rename title as "Biped Howto".

Hi, I will try to explain, in a very simplistic manner, the way in which servo motors can be controlled.

Servo motors are controlled by a PWM signal, in which the active part of the signal (known as duty cycle) define the amount of degrees the servo will rotate.
