Hack your servo v3.00 - Get full PID position and speed control from your hobby servo Yes we like servo mods! As promished this is the third servo hack. This builts upon the second hack - 'add 10-bit abolute/incremental feedback encoder to your hobby servo' - node/18470. Source code is open and links provided at the end of the post.

Physical Computing at ITP | Labs / DC Motor Control Using an H-Bridge

Overview In this tutorial, you'll learn how to control a DC motor's direction using an H-bridge. To reverse a DC motor, you need to be able to reverse the direction of the current in the motor. The easiest way to do this is using an H-bridge circuit.
Robotic Arm – Hardware Robotic Arm – Hardware This is first in series of articles about project I've been building in my spare time since last Summer. Actually it all began when I was researching a topic of modeling human motion kinematics in order to create gesture recognition library for Kinect. This ties heavily into motion theory of robotic manipulators so I also glanced at some designs of robotic arms. Somehow I stumbled upon this cool looking open source robotic arm: It was featured on Thingiverse and published by user jjshortcut (Jan-Jaap).

Uptech CDS 55XX Serial Robot Servo (Robotis AX Compatible) Uptech CDS 55XX Serial Robot Servo (Robotis AX Compatible) Hi guys,I have hooked up 4 servos to the arduino uno board and found some code from our friends at the principia lab for python to control axis movement from joystick to servos and a short script that gets uploaded to the uno board.I was wondering if anyone knows how to add trim control.I want to be able to select different servos from the joystick buttons and adjust trim via two arrow buttons on the joystick.Currently I am using my brothers forum login as I am new to all this arduino electronics, so please, if anyone knows how to help me with my project it will be much appreciated. Cheers for your help and time. Here is the link to the lab where I got the code as well as being attached below. [url=http://principialabs.com/arduino-python-4-axis-servo-control/]principialabs.com/arduino-python-4-axis-servo-control/[/url] This is the code for the arduino board. Text is red.
Robot Platform | Howto | Motor Driver - L293D - 1 Robot Platform | Howto | Motor Driver - L293D - 1 Motor Driver and H-bridge basics Generally, even the simplest robot requires a motor to rotate a wheel or performs particular action. Since motors require more current then the microcontroller pin can typically generate, you need some type of a switch (Transistors, MOSFET, Relay etc.,) which can accept a small current, amplify it and generate a larger current, which further drives a motor. This entire process is done by what is known as a motor driver.

Polargraph Drawing Machine Polargraph Drawing Machine Well there have been lots of new drawing machines doing the rounds lately, there's a real thirst to see devices that leap out of the virtual into the physical. For me, it's all too easy to produce digital things which are interesting - programming or mash-ups or virtual experiments are devalued because they are intangible, you can run a hundred, a thousand, a million variations in a day - it's the proverbial roomful of monkeys with typewriters. The output becomes disposable, it get's hard to see the value, the craft.

Starter Pack Which Includes Everything for Controlling a Servo from a PC Starter Pack Which Includes Everything for Controlling a Servo from a PC If you have never used a servo before, let alone control one from a PC, then the “Servo Pack” provides an easy “plug-and-go” solution. Once you have the Servo running under PC control the knowledge and confidence you gain by actually using a Servo is invaluable in applying those techniques to a wide range of applications. The Servo supplied is one of the most popular types on the market and understanding its principles of operation provides a solid basis for using many other types.

Swarm-bots project Swarm-bots is a project sponsored by the Future and Emerging Technologies program of the European Commission (IST-2000-31010), aimed to study new approaches to the design and implementation of self-organizing and self-assembling artifacts. The project, that lasted 42 months, was successfully completed on March 31, 2005. Since October 1, 2006, the Swarmanoid project is extending the work done in the Swarm-bots project to three dimensional environments. Dr. Marco Dorigo, the project coordinator and one of the founders of the swarm intelligence and swarm robotics research fields, has been awarded, in November 2003, the First EU Marie Curie Award, and in November 2005, the prestigious «FNRS Prize - Prix Dr A.
USD Modular Robotics Research Lab - modular The vision of USD’s Modular Robotics Lab is to develop modular robots that a non-expert user can adapt to perform a wide range of tasks. The key idea behind our work is to break a robot’s functionality down into mechatronics components, i.e. modules, from which we can construct a large variety of robots. We currently focus on ways to increase the versatility and adaptability of modular robots while reducing their cost. In particular we focus on : Modularization of mechatronics Novel mechatronics designs
