The Swirling Brain has been reading Scott Preston's latest book, The Definitive Guide to Building Java Robots . Using Java on a robot would have seemed crazy just a few years ago but every day we're reporting on microcontrollers and laptops with faster CPUs and more memory. You might as well put all that memory and horsepower to use. So if you like programming in Java, there's really no reason not to try it out on a robot. Scott's book provides a good introduction to using Java with sensors, motors and other robot necessities. He also covers navigation, speech, and vision.
One of the most common mistakes made by beginning electronics students in their application of Ohm's Laws is mixing the contexts of voltage, current, and resistance. In other words, a student might mistakenly use a value for I through one resistor and the value for E across a set of interconnected resistors, thinking that they'll arrive at the resistance of that one resistor. Not so!
In Depth Stop by a newsstand and check out the cover headlines on almost any motorcycle magazine and the first things you'll see are topics such as "Gain 10 easy horsepower," or "Increase horsepower and torque with quick bolt-ons," or "Add pound-feet of torque the easy way." Terms like horsepower and torque are tossed around frequently, but seldom are they defined. Consequently, you are often left with many unanswered questions. Regardless of whether you ride a heavyweight bagger, medium-size cruiser or lightweight Sporty, understanding the differences between horsepower and torque can help you make educated decisions when choosing performance parts for your model of bike and riding style. Interestingly, horsepower and torque are closely related. The point in the engine's rpm band at which torque is made and the amount of torque made will determine whether the engine is considered a torque- or horsepower-type of motor.
The golden ratio was often used in the design of Greek and Roman architecture. Sacred geometry is geometry that is sacred to the observer or discoverer. This meaning is sometimes described as being the language of the God of the religion of the people who discovered or used it.
