Misc / Here's an LSM9DS1 Accelerometer/Magnetometer/Gyro for your projects : )
« Last post by NorDevX on Yesterday at 05:30:39 PM »
It's in a new smaller ic so we made the board even smaller too : )  Here's what it looks like and if you would like to know more about the LSM9DS1 you can go here : https://www.nordevx.com/content/lsm9ds1-9-dof-accelerometer-magnetometer-and-gyro.  We also have arduino code to get you started.

 :) Hello!
With no doubt, it would be the Parallax Spinerete. I would highly recommend going to visit the
Parallax website. They have code snippets for the device; it is about 50 bucks. You can find support
from their forum for the device, is you ask for it. The Parallax support team will help you too.
Good Luck!   8)

 :) Hello!
I saw on discovery channel that someone took a three wheel bicycle, and put an electric motor
on it. Had space for batteries and solar cells (recharge). They also used the 10 speed gear changer,
and seemed to work pretty well.
As far as calculations go, I have used a spreadsheet (Excel) to accomodate any and all formulas
that I could think of in a particular project. If some calculations seemed in conflict, the apparent
resolution would present itself. The spreadsheet can import information into a file, for processing
real word information. (to verify the calculated formula) You can use the spreadsheet on your PC,
or use it on a beaglebone black, or Raspberry Pi for compactness. Good luck!   ;D

 :) Hello!
I would require more information. When I was in an industrial setting, I had access to information
regarding lots of motors. Do you have a link to the specific motor? Keep me posted.....   ;D

 :) Hello!
I would need more information. A general diagram of your mechanisim, electronics, etc would help.
Keep me posted....   :)

Are you looking to calculate the torque possible from your motor, the torque required to move the robot, or both?

both have been discussed in this thread

If I was not clear,What's the "math/calculations" behind finding the right torque on  the wheel axle

 :) Hello!
I have not bought one of the Axon at this time. I am learning about it first, buying books,
etc, to collecting info. I expect I will buy one in the near future; but would like to have
chat support form people like you. Keep me posted on your progress....   ;)
Mechanics and Construction / Re: second robot ATV/Stair climber

 :) Hello!
Sounds like an involved robot. Parallax has alot of robots, but not a stair climbing robot to my knowledge.
Parallax has a balancing robot, which may help on your way to making your robot. Programming, or
coding, will depend on the complexity of the robot. If you have most of the gyro programming out of
the way, (as provided by other programmers) then you can proceed to develop your new code, as
required with your new robot legs/system.
I would pick a microprocessor that has support for its editor, debugger, and terminal programmer.
You are going to need all the code "snippets" that you can get. Motors, sensors, drivers, bearings,
metal supports, and accessories will have to be taken into account when programming; because
mechanical adjustments make a difference in radians, in reference to your PWM motors.
Good Luck!   :D
