I have always wanted to experiment with robotics, and lately I’ve found the time to build an “intelligent”, open-source robotic platform. The platform runs embedded debian linux, and includes the following main capabilities: 1. Computer Vision (imitation of the human vision. The robot sees and “understands” what it sees). For this I have extensively used […]
A Radio-Controlled (RC) Servo USB Controller, that can control up to 9 servo motors and 9 general outputs.
The BeagleBoard, capabale as it is, is not a standard PC, and thus beginning to work with is involves some non trivial steps. The first step, naturally, is to get keyboard, mouse and monitor output. The second step is to get network controll (preferably Ethernet, but a Serial connection is fine for the beginning as […]
A system that stores and analyzes signals from different sensors. The system uses a hardware component that connects to a computer using a USB interface, and interfaces signals of different kinds (some even remote, using an RF link). The system uses simple .Net software to analyze the signals online, and to preform different kinds of […]
An introductory article about servo motors: What are servo motors? What is an RC Servo motor? Servo motors usages in robotics applications. Advantages and disadvantages of servo motors, comparison between servo motors and stepper motors. Servo motor control. Servo motor voltage, current, and wiring.
