AGV

Here is my AGV. It drives to GPS waypoints.  It is currently using a Arduino, GPS, and of course a motor controller. The bot itself is a Hummer RC truck from … Read more

Iphone controlled XMOS powered UGV robot!

Another XMOS robot I have found, made by people at University of Denver.

Demonstration of XMOS real-time ability. This test is running 8 independent tasks: gps task, ultra-sonic task, compass task, wifi receive task, wifi transmit task, pwm output task, behavior task, status led task:

Control of a ground vehicle via XMOS microprocessor and iPhone through wifi:

I might be breaking some LMR rules, but this robot was built on my spare time while funded by the University of Oslo  and my employer APPLY Sørco, covering the … Read more

Using GPS via Serial Connection!

Well, I found out that Maplin had a really cheap GPS module that supports UART (Serial) at 38400 BPS. I'm still waiting for it, but here's what I have so far!

Here's the unit, and specs: (unit was JUST discontinued, so won't be able to find much info on the device itself)

XMOS Challenge : ONR robot beginnings

Description of the ONR (maybe a real name TBA)

This robot is to navigate outdoors from point to point, possibly going through a series of predetermined points. Point location can be marked by traffic cones, GPS coordinates, or other orienteering markers as detailed in various contests like Robomagellan or the DPRG outdoor contests.  Requirements include finding and recognizing the point, as well as negotiating any obstacles between points, and maintaining a remote stop.
