Since R2D2 from StarWars is very popular with my kids these days, I started working on a tin can robot which looks something like R2D2 and is remote controllable through a Android device (cell phone, tablet, ..). The body is made from a can which originally was for coffee. As you can see in the […]
This shows the carambot driving around autonomously by using the ultrasonic range finder together with the pan servo. The algorithm used is pretty simple (see Python snipped after break).
This is work in progress, so see it fail :-). What you see in the video is an update about the robot I am currently working on. It uses a Carambola MIPS SoC which communicates to a MSP430G2553 on a TI Launchpad through serial line. The Launchpad runs a “special” firmware I am currently working […]
I finally got around to post the description of my first robot project – called rob01. The primary goal of the project was to learn more on micro controllers and electronics by building a small robot which is able to drive autonomous as well as remote controlled by a human. The robot is based on […]
