Software / Re: $50 Code

 :) Hello!
I will probably need to invest in the $50 robot to help on the resolution. The code they have
may be "correct" by prgramming standards, but have a problem in the application in
the registers of the microprocessors.
 8) Aewsome idea!
The Raspberry Pi community will definitely buy your book. You could provide the
robosapien project as an open project, so everybody could use your platform.
Maybe even start a Robosapien app for the Raspeberry PI !!!
Your invention could be used as a model for bigger versions, like a beginner platform.
Goo Job!   :)

 8) Cool! I was dreaming about a expo like this!!  8)
I have not developed my walking robot yet, so I can not compete

First off,
THANK YOU, thanks a lot.
I highly appreciate your effort to explain me!
the posts were pretty clear this time :D
As and when I start building this project i will keep you'll posted.
Again a million thanks for taking time and helping me out!  :)
The web cam switch is just a hardware button for capturing pictures, I could have detached but I left it on. I screwed up the first web cam by trying to resolder a few things...

My plans are to implement some form of navigation get him moving about the place in an intelligent way probably using computer vision something like SimpleCV which I will install on the Pi.

To be honest you are only limited by your imagination, RoboSapien can be used for a whole load of things social Robotics is a big one. I'm still working on attaching a mic for speech etc.

If all goes well I'll probably publish my work and code in some shape or form.

Total cost of the build came under 300 euros for me. You can easily swap the Pi say for an Arduino by pushing it off his back and installing an Arduino mount.
Misc / NEW! SparkFun + Actobotics Stairclimbing Challenge!
« Last post by ServoCity on January 29, 2015, 05:03:28 PM »

We are excited to announce the SparkFun + Actobotics Stairclimber Challenge! This new contest invites you to show off your robotic chops and win some pretty hefty prizes, such as $500 SparkFun credit! Are you up to the challenge?


There are five basic rules:
   - Build a stairclimbing robot. How you interpret that is up to you, but it needs to climb stairs.
   - Use some (or all) Actobotics parts.
   - Use some (or all) SparkFun parts.
   - No commercial or off-the-shelf bots. It has to be an original build.
   - Clearly explain your robot in your video.

You have until March 16th, 2015 to submit your entry.

Submission works like this:
- Take a video of your entry in action and be sure to clearly explain how both the mechanical and electronics bits work.
- Post your video to YouTube and include a materials list in the description. Email the link to [email protected]
- Entries MUST be received no later than 11:59 p.m. MT on March 16th. Please donít email it after this and then try to get your entry in - rules are rules!

Entries will be judged based on 1) adherence to the above rules, 2) creativity, and 3) video quality (did you explain the bot clearly and can we tell how it works?).

Hello and welcome :)
There are three 4 errors that I have encountered in the code so far ; one of them I was able to find a solution for ISR(ADC_vect) in the a2d.c file. You just replace whatever was an error in that file with what I have put on here. The other 3 I was not able to find solutions for and no one was able to provide them. I am attaching 3 screenshots, maybe you will be able to help. :)
This doesn't answer your question but there was a thread regarding these muscles a while back. If you haven't read it, there might be some useful information.
