DORA - 柴火创客空间 出自柴火创客空间 DORA Open Robot Assistant Project This project is aimed at building a cheap GENERAL-PURPOSE robot that does REAL-WORLD job, such as fetch a beer from fridge. a more detailed explanation on the goal of this project: Why DORA? Project website: DORA Project Dorabot Prototype I, Now in Sudoroom hackerspace, Oakland, CA, USA. MiniDORA, a miniture version of Dorabot that is software compatible with a full-sized Dorabot. Join our weekly meetup every Saturday Afternoon Check out (and join!) Weekly Meetup Saturday Night, 19:30~21:30 @ Chaihuo Makerspace We'll talk about the problems we met in the week, try figure out solution together, and most important: enjoy hacking together! Fee Standard Robot Maker:400RMB/mo Robotic Zealot:800RMB/mo Starving Roboticist:200RMB/mo There's no difference in all three fee levels. All fee will be put into DORA_Fund, maintained by Feng Zhu. Everyone who pays the fee will automatically become Chaihuo DORA Member, can come to the space anytime to hack ON ROBOT.

Forums - AeroQuad - The Open Source Quadcopter The AeroQuad is an open source hardware and software project dedicated to the construction of remote controlled four-rotor helicopters, also known as quadcopters or quadrocopters. The latest software also support additional multicopter configurations! Buy AeroQuad Parts HereDownload the AeroQuad Software AeroQuad hardware typically consists of the fully-featured STM32-based AeroQuad32 flight controller board or an Arduino microcontroller (Mega 2560 or Uno) as the flight controller board, and an AeroQuad shield with various sensors, such as an accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer (heading), barometer (altitude hold) ultrasonic sensors and GPS. Below you'll find an overview of the features AeroQuad offers you: Multiple flight configurations are supported: Development: For information on the development of AeroQuad, see the AeroQuad GitHub Repository, the AeroQuad Developers Guide and our Wiki.

The Scala Programming Language Indoor Navigation Robot using OpenCV Interesting Project Having a Raspberry Pi myself, I have been amazed on the variety of solutions that can be done with a £25 ($35) computer. Update: This can be done and here is some proof: there is a video of this with the wireless keyboard On Friday 10th August 2012 there was a video posted on the official news/blog for Raspberry Pi The video (English or German) shows from a very basic setup 17 LED's using the GPIO to very advanced (controlling a motor vehicle's engine rpm) with the videos NOTE there is a section where they are controlling small-robots. I am fairly sure QGIS would run on Ubuntu (slowly when processing) on an Raspberry Pi but not tested. RAM can be added to Raspberry Pi - 48GB in fact There is a Raspberry Pi (Beta) Stack Exchange

DIY Drones | Robot Living It’s all about the drones this week baby, so why not make one yourself? Over at DIY Drones you can get directions on how to build your own drone for not a lot of money. They have just released Ardupilot 2.0, software that controls the your drone plane. Or if planes aren’t your thing, build an autonomous blimp for about $100. Check out the blimp page at DIY Drones here. The blimps go by various names such as Light Autonomous Air Vehicle, Blimp Bots, Blubber Bots. Check out this helicopter being made by Jose at DIY Drones, complete with camera. Or you could just shell out $$$ for a Draganflyer. Link

D3.js - Data-Driven Documents Robot Control - Physical Computing with Raspberry Pi Difficulty: intermediate This tutorial guides you through how to drive the servos on the robot, how to have it react to its environment through the use of sensors and as an extension how to control it over Bluetooth with a Wiimote. It is recommended that you look through the Buttons and Switches tutorial before beginning this one. It is recommended to use one of our SD cards or images. Inspect your robot, make sure everything is connected and decide on what sensors you have available to you. First thing is to get the robot driving. python to get a console running, this does not need to be root for i2c control, however if you want to interface with other GPIO you will need to run as root (sudo python) instead. In your Python console: #import our i2c libraries to be able to speak to the chip import i2c #start a connection to the chip, default frequency is 50Hz which is good for driving servos servos = i2c.I2C() Now that you have a connection to the i2c chip you may have to calibrate your servos.
