Electronics / Re: DTMF 8870 Circuit Explanation

Cool! A lot of things can be done with the chip! I have made my own way of communicating with it,
using the tones to send weighted binary data. I converted the ANSI standard character code to
4 tones, in which can be understood in pure audio(by humans), or transmitted by other means.
I based this method on Morse Code; In which I call this new method Morse Tone. (Now we know
how the robots using tones in Star Wars communicated to People! joking.. but possible. :) )

Hi,

After reading this forum, I got some interesting info about 8870. But I came to know that when we press a button in the mobile phone, it splits into two frequencies (i.e. high and low frequency) which will produce a single tone. This tone is sent to 8870 IC through headphone jack and they are separated by bandpass filter. Then they are decoded using digital counting techniques to receive the digital output.

Nothing much, just wanted to share my knowledge.

He builds them in six months but works on them 24/7. I wrote a blog post about him. He builds mechanized monster trucks, too. You can read the blog here if you are interested in learning more:

These are two of my buddy Tim Willis' robots. He's working on a 50-foot fire-breathing dragon right now. This is what he does fulltime! Build robots. He's bringing them out to my office on Thursday for an event we are having so he can show them off to the high school's Robotics Team. He actually lives IN his garage, sleeps a couple hours and works around the clock. He drove to Florida and back in a day to get parts for the dragon. My friends are amazing makers.

They certainly are!  This is incredible!!! Hope to see more pics as the dragon evolves, thanks for the share, will definitely be checking in!  Do you know how long he usually works on the project from start to completion?

Misc / Anyone have experience with Castle Creations Inc.?

I bought two robotic controllers from Castle Creations, Inc. and ordered EXPENSIVE overnight shipping. The item arrived two days later and was sent to the wrong person (the name on the credit card rather than the ship-to name; so, we almost didn't get them in time to solder.

Hello frnd..
I am Nikesh
Iam doing a project based on Agribot. In my project I have used four DC motors to run four wheels of my vehicle .
I have connected motor shaft directly to wear to minimize the losses.
My question is that i haven't used any gears.  so how far it is good and how much it is advantageous than geared system. the total weight is 5kg..  please reply me fast

   I have compiled a list of books, websites and sources for parts, related to robotics and electronics, that I have found useful and interesting. Hopefully this will be useful to you if you are searching for parts or information.

This is nothing short of gold, thank you!!!
