How do you connect a SRF005 to an Arduino MEGA 1280

I need help on connecting a srf005 (the blue one) to an Arduino MEGA 1280

You can use this image as a guide.

I want the connection for the srf005 using only three pins. :) (The one where you connect the mode pin to ground)

Thanks,

making an analog robot

I have been inspired to make an analog neural network robot after seeing phoenix. My robot is called synapse and it will react to its environment. It is nocturnal and it has touch sensor arms and only is active at night. I will update you a soon as i can.

New DAGU products for 2012

Well 2012 is off to a great start with a brand new Arduino compatible controller, A car controlled by your phone and a robot arm with teaching pendant from DAGU.

The Micro Magician is designed for small robots running on low voltage batteries. The controller works on voltages from 3.6V to 9V.The heart of the controller is an ATmega168 running on 3.3V with an 8MHz clock. Check out the great new features!

Weight

Hello,

I have started building a quadruped robot using Lynxmotion SES parts. I have the Lynxmotion quadruped body kit and 4 SES 3DOF legs. I have bought servos and put everything together. However, I'm much more comfortable with the code than with the mechanics.

Beam photovore problem

Ok so I made this beam photovore robot using an online tutorial (google: rays beam robots) and after I completed it only one motor moves. Watch my video below.

arduino and SLAM

Hello,

I am developing a robot platform for children for educational purposes. My aim is to build a sub 100$ bot with arduino brains. I myself is a good programmer, and if I were to do it for myself, I would use an ARM or a better platform, but I have to constraint this project with arduino.

I have already designed some parts, and I have access to a 3d printer, so it is going all well. I already have a servo/sharp IR sensor scanner, and currently I am using a tamiya tracked vehicle for platform.

Experimental RC Robotic Hand

Introducing my Experimental RC Robotic Hand. I'm going to use it for a robot that I will use to take on Ro-bot-X's "Search And Rescue" Challenge. It's purpose is to get a hold on the drink, obviously. This is only Version 0.2, I'm am currently building a lighter and easier to use grabber to replace the heavier hand that is attached to the winch motor.  More updates soon.

A Robot Operating System

We at RobotBASIC are currently working on a RobotBASIC Robot Operating System (RROS).

The full RROS will manage almost any type of sensor allowing hobbyists
without an electronics background to build and program sophisticated
robots.  The RROS will probably be distributed Open-Source to allow
expansion and customization.  We will even allow users to share their
modifications through our web page.  The LIGHT version is requiring
sensitive coding that will not be appropriate for modification, so it will

This robot uses a beam styled solar engine. It stores up electricity in the three capacitors until it has enough to twitch and move. Hope you like it. Read more

Robot Building Time

I just wanted to start a discussion about how you find time to build robots. I know that I love building robots but sometimes I can not find any time to do this hobby.

Are you ready for the next LMR robotics challenge?


After the success of my last game Cross the Gap. We had to give you guys another challenge of equal difficulty for you to rack your brains around. Its your chance to come up with creative solutions to win robot related prizes! This time we have asked a guest game official to be the judge of the event and to pick the game winners.
