Where we are all moving to

The best thing for me in a project like this LMR, is that we inspire each other, collaborative development is actually what we do - even though many of us would say that what we do is completely unique ;)

Today "a robot" is most likely not walking around but has tracks or wheels, can navigate autonomously, and that is in many instances just about that.

Of course I know that this is also highly influenced by our "start here" project.

 

Made a robot with 2 wheels, and need a "coaster", half a tennis ball or something? This must be the best sollution!
I admit I have not tried this, but it just struck me: You know the kind of robot.. well - like the "start here-project"; You have 2 wheels, and perhaps you need … Read more

Frits's private parts up for grabs

-- == Here is a link to an always updated Picasa foto album with the things I have, and will send to you, for the things I want, on the list below ==--

Some of the items I have in 100's, and some just the one - aske me below (coment) for details, thanks :)

If you want to swap with me, do it like this:

PM me with subject line "Offer", and a ultra short mail with the following:

Just a quick tip on belt tracks, if you'd never did them before, and want to try :) Simple; one wheel in each side follows a motor, rest is free to turn. Motors can … Read more
This is a motor driver that I like because of this: It is usable from 6 to 50V, at up to 4A total output currentIt has a 5V output, so you can just hook up any … Read more

Arduino: How to make your first robot with..

When writing this, LMR only offers "Start here" - instructions on how to make your first robot, using Picaxe.

"Nebster" wrote to me, and asked if I could do a parallel, using Arduino, and I think that is actually a very good idea (now that Picaxe refuses to pay me commission, haha)

Focus should be on making first timers get a robot up and running at a low cost, and most importantly learn how to hook up motors, a servo, and a analogue input in "no time".
