" Chris-Rachael Oseland, Austin Post "This vision sensor could be the future eyes of robots. " Mashable.com "The sheer power, flexibility and ease of use of Pixy could kick-start a whole new generation of robotics. " The Shrimp. Moving Servos with a SSC-32 and an Arduino - Robotics. Next, you have to connect a jumper from RX on the SSC-32 to TX on the Arduino.

Moving Servos with a SSC-32 and an Arduino - Robotics

Additionally, you have to connect a jumper from Ground (next to RX) on the SSC-32 to Ground on the Arduino. In the picture below, the yellow jumper is from RX to TX, and the grey jumper is from Ground to Ground. (Image from There are two separate powering options that you will have to consider. The first is the power for the board, and the second is power for the servos. Now, connect a servo to the first port on the SSC-32, power up the board and the Arduino - let's try a sample program to control it! Install the Arduino IDE in Ubuntu 12.04. Installing the Arduino IDE in Ubuntu only takes a few minutes.

Install the Arduino IDE in Ubuntu 12.04

As usual, it’s a better idea to install the Arduino straight from the source, instead of relying on the version in Ubuntu’s repository. While it wasn’t hard to install the Arduino IDE, I noticed that the Arduino GUI was really slow and laggy. This is because the startup script tells Java to use Ubuntu’s GTK look and feel, which makes everything run slowly. It’s easily fixed by changing a single line in the startup script. Update: In the Arduino 1.0.1 update, “Serial Port” is greyed out. Getting Arduino UNO to work in Linux.

As of now (early July, 2011), the UNO is broken in Linux.

Getting Arduino UNO to work in Linux

The board is shipped with a firmware that makes it practically impossible to use in Linux. The symptoms are : {*style:<ul style="padding-left:20px;"><li> Arduino IDE unable to detect serial port, or loosing it randomly, making it very difficult to upload a sketch or to open serial monitor. Arduino + WiiChuck steered laser pointer - Maxoffsky. MikMo. GoBetwino 0.6 on the way – for real :-) September 18th, 2011 After a very long break from work on GoBewtino, caused by having a baby, moving twice and a generally busy life, i have begun to finish the work on the next version of GoBetwino that i started two years ago. The most important new features in version 0.6 : 5 new command types, including file upload with FTP, and posting Twitter status updates.All code concerning sending and receiving emails have been totally rewritten, so now mail accounts that require SSL (Gmail for instance) can be used.Serial monitor like functionality build in to simplify debugging while using GoBetwino.It’s now possible to test commands without having your Arduino connected.

I dumped the Indy sockets library i used for pop3 access in favour of the OpenPoP library. Right now the new version is feature frozen, i’m not adding more to it. I will post more details here soon. Gobetwino. I can't guarantee that every mail will receive an answer but I will try. Sculpey Polymer Clay - the Mokume Gane Technique.

Blog : Hacromatic: Electronics kits and projects worldwide. I couldn’t find much information about how to use the Arduino motor shield (as of late 2012), so I thought I’d show how to set up the connections for both stepper motors (4, 5, 6, and 8 wires) and DC motors, along with some basic sketches to drive them.

Stepper Motors Steppers can be broadly classified as 2/4-phase or 5-phase. This breakdown covers the vast majority of stepper motors you’re likely to encounter. 5-phase motors typically provide lower vibration and smaller stepping angles than 2 and 4 phase motors, but they are less common and won’t work with the Arduino motor shield, so I’m not going to talk about those here. FrSKY Telemetry Projects - Flytron Projects. This tiny PCB including only 3 component for measuring the 0-36V over FrSky’s brilliant analog voltage input.

Our new FrSky telemetry display supporting this sensor. You can build it your self or buy from our shop. Hi Guys Here is the our new telemetry firmware (v2.6 didn’t released yet) and ground station software. We removed IR sensor from simpleOSD on SimpleOSDv2 boards and we are using It’s signal and ground pins for telemetry output. Electronics : Microprocessors : How to make an Arduino-compatible minimal board. Make your own board Once you have been playing with Arduinos for a while you probably are thinking that you want to deploy one, but without the expense, and physical size, of using a whole new Uno board.

This post describes how to do that. Arduino and 7 Segment LED. 7 Segment LED Click here to like us on Facebook! How many TV shows and movies have you seen with some mysterious electronic device counting down to zero on one of those 7 segment LED displays? If we were in that situation, we would be thinking: "Wow, where did they get that in cool blue? They are usually red. " Operating Two Servos with the Arduino. The Arduino can control two servos with the same ease as one.

Operating Two Servos with the Arduino

All it takes is creating a second instance (copy) of the Servo object, giving it a unique name. For example, in a two-wheeled differentially-steered robot you might call one servo object servoLeft, and the other servoRight. The Arduino lacks direct connections for attaching the servo motors. Instead, the mini breadboard provides prototyping space for connecting both servos, as well as the AA battery holder that powers the servos. Refer to Figure 1 (schematic) and Figure 2 (pictorial) for wiring the solderless breadboard. [Figure 1] Code, circuits, & construction. A stepper motor is a motor controlled by a series of electromagnetic coils.

code, circuits, & construction

The center shaft has a series of magnets mounted on it, and the coils surrounding the shaft are alternately given current or not, creating magnetic fields which repulse or attract the magnets on the shaft, causing the motor to rotate. This design allows for very precise control of the motor: by proper pulsing, it can be turned in very accurate steps of set degree increments (for example, two-degree increments, half-degree increments, etc.). They are used in printers, disk drives, and other devices where precise positioning of the motor is necessary.

There are two basic types of stepper motors, unipolar steppers and bipolar steppers. Top 40 Arduino Projects of the Web. Burn a bootloader to a blank atmega328/atmega328p with an Arduino UNO. Build your own optiLoader shield!

You cant use your Arduino UNO as programmer unless you modify it, but i didnt want to do that! Some people had luck using a Resistor and Capacitor to disable the auto reset feature but it did not work for me (Using an Arduino UNO R2) So i tried using a parallel port programmer but never got it to work. It seems easy, so if your interested go ahead and try it yourself, but be warned, could lead to frustration :) It Editor. Arduino-Python 4-Axis Servo Control.

Spooky Projects – Introduction to Microcontrollers with Arduino. Spooky Projects is a set of four 3-hour classes in October 2006 hosted by Machine Project and taught by Tod E. Kurt.

It is an introduction to microcontroller programming and interfacing with the real world using the Arduino physical computing platform. In the class, participants are shown and experiment with the Arduino’s capabilities and learn the basics of common microcontroller interfacing, such as: digital output to control lights and LEDs, digital input to read switches and buttons, analog output to control motor position or LED brightness, and analog input to read sensor inputs. From these tools all sorts of interesting projects can be created. In the class, a few simple project sketches are covered using the provided parts kit, under the theme of spooky animatronics for Halloween. Arduino Serial Servo Control. Physical Etoys « GIRA. Introducción En las últimas décadas, las teorías construccionistas y el progreso tecnológico permitieron que la robótica educativa comience a surgir en algunas escuelas como complemento a diversas materias de la currícula.

Sin embargo, cada kit de robótica tiene su manera particular de programarse y no permite la comunicación con otros kits. Es por esta razón que se decidió crear Physical Etoys, una extensión argentina de Etoys que facilita la interacción con estos dispositivos. Minibloq. Arduino hacks. Playground - Ps2mouse. Mini Volt Meter ID: 460 - $7.95. Put a voltage meter anywhere with this very handy display. These are often used by RC hobbyists for keeping track of batteries but we thought it would be great on a breadboard or enclosure. This is the 2-wire version of the volt meter, two wires are used to power it and measure at the same time. We also have a 3-wire version that measure a wider range of voltages. Simply connect the red wire to the positive supply, and black to negative ground.
