Free Plans-Model Steam Engine A curriculum support site providing free lab-project plans for technical students, their teachers and others interested in applied mechanical engineering. SPECIAL NOTE: Tripod generously provides this web space free: unfortunately, they do not provide unlimited bandwidth. This site has been fairly popular and as a result, it has occasionally overused the free bandwidth provided. If you have trouble re-reaching this site, wait a few hours and try again! Pi Robot This is a very simple robot based on a Raspberry Pi with a L293D motor controlles connected to two motors and wheels. Running on the Pi I have a python script which checks the current message on livebots and moves the motors accordingly. You can control it LIVE at: Here are some photos: Here's a scketch of the connections:
Make a Robot - Fun Projects for Kids, Robotics Kits, Science Fair, Build Robots Make Your Own Robot! Depending on the age and skill level of students you can try one of two different robot building projects. Build a robot from household items Let younger kids enjoy building a robot from everyday household items.
Our First Experience with Robotics: Making a Web-Controlled Robotic Arm As part of Programmers’ Day celebration this year, Azoft web developers decided to surprise our fellow Azoft employees with a competition. To try something new and unusual, we created an internet-controlled robotic arm. This was our first experience with robotics and it turned out a success. The robotic arm competition was lots of fun for everyone involved, so we decided to share our experience and post this robotics tutorial to give you a fast start into building robots for your own geek parties. What does the robotic arm do? Our robotic arm is controlled via a web interface: it responds to remote commands and performs simple tasks.
ARES Mars Scout Mission Proposal - Platform ARES Platform ARES Enables a New Class of Science that Complements and Extends the Mars Exploration Program Simultaneous, in-situ, regional-scale measurement of the Mars atmosphere, surface, and interior Bridges critical scale and resolution measurement gaps of remote sensing and surface exploration Scout for future sample return and surface mission site selection Magnetic survey with spatial resolution two orders of magnitude higher than provided by Mars Global Surveyor, with ability to resolve the crustal magnetism source structure High-resolution measurements that cannot be achieved from orbit Geologic diversity from regional-scale coverage that cannot be achieved by surface missions In-situ atmospheric science Ability to traverse terrain inaccessible to surface vehicles Ability to precisely target science features Ability to execute a controlled, pre-planned aerial survey pattern Robust performance with regard to atmospheric uncertainties A Balanced Design
Daddy's Robot Car: DRC Mark 1 Well.... It may not be pretty... but it's fun to do... Trying to use the Raspberry Pi and its camera to navigate the room full of toddlers toys... The ultrasonic setup is not being used - navigation is solely down to the vision... A fairly simple algorithm - what's flooring? How far away is the nearest object? Breaking News English ESL Lesson Plan on Robots Wednesday December 8, 2004 Intermediate + The expression to ‘get one’s thinking cap on’ has just taken on a new and quite literal meaning. Scientists have invented a device that can allow human thoughts to control a computer’s actions.
Robotics, Vision & Control The practice of robotics and computer vision each involve the application of computational algorithms to data. The research community has developed a very large body of algorithms but for a newcomer to the field this can be quite daunting. For more than 10 years the author has maintained two open-source MATLAB® Toolboxes, one for robotics and one for vision. They provide implementations of many important algorithms and allow users to work with real problems, not just trivial examples. This new book makes the fundamental algorithms of robotics, vision and control accessible to all. It weaves together theory, algorithms and examples in a narrative that covers robotics and computer vision separately and together.
