ComMotion Shield for omni and mecanum wheel robots

After building my first omni wheel robot I realized how difficult it can be to monitor 4 encoders and drive 4 motors so I designed the ComMotion shield. As the name suggest the shield is designed for motion control but as I ended up with 2 spare serial ports I decided to add communications abilities to the shield hence the name ComMotion.

T'REX robot controller

 

The T'REX robot controller makes controlling robots easy!

The Arduino compatible controller comes pre-programmed with sample code that lets you control it with a supplied Android app, Radio Control or with an external controller via I²C.

Specifications:

TITAN is a super sized Wild Thumper designed for jobs such as lawn mower, snow plow or fire fighting robot. I blogged the initial construction of this prototype … Read more

Building a TITAN

TITAN is a much larger version of my Wild Thumper robot chassis which was based on my original 6WD robot chassis. The reason for making TITAN is simple, I want a robot chassis big enough to do jobs like plowing snow, mowing the lawn or carrying heavy garden supplies like a few bags of fertilizer.

Now with cool video of a real life military prototype! This is an easy to make 6 wheel drive robot platform designed for rough terrain. The chassis is made from 3 … Read more
I have been developing this 5 axis CNC Controller on and off (mostly off) for the last 3 years. I wanted an "all in one" controller that did not depend on a PC to … Read more
