I apologize in advance if this seems quite tedious, However I am quite confused with the way robotic I/O works as well as synchronous/asynchronous and I am having a hard time trying to understand them. Please if anyone would be so kind as to explain these three things in a way a beginner can understand I would be incredibly grateful. Thank you for your time.

Does it do anything?

Can you make the LED turn on?

You say that the build was OK, but did it actually program the chip? Did you see the light on the programmer flash orange for a couple seconds? The process for setting up the AVRISPmkII is different than the tutorial.

Did you use the exact same chip as in the tutorial?

Do you have tools like a voltmeter that you can use to check the circuit?

hi everyone so me and my friend are makign the 50$ robot for our final project. We have followed all the steps so far and we are now stuck at a point where we cant get the robot to run, we use AVR studio 4 to build the program and build was successful but the robot still doesnt work? idk what the problem is can someone possibly help us out. i will answer questions as best as i can.

Move your mouse cursor to the upper right corner of this web page and click on where it says "Robot Tutorials".
Lots to read there to get you started.

Misc / Getting started in robotics as hobby
« Last post by psilocine on June 29, 2014, 09:20:55 PM »
Hey guys,

I'm all new to the scene but I decided I want to start robotics as my new hobby.

I have a little hard time getting started though.
I can't really find any good starter tutorials on robotics.
I do have some experience in serveral programming languages but I have very little experience in electronics.

I did a little research on what I want my starter projects to be.
I know that a walking robot is way out of my league (for now) but it would be nice to start with some remote controlled vehicles, Maybe even balance one on two wheels.. I dunno.

The main problem is that I can't really find a place to start.
I think that if i got the basic electronics wired up and connected to a program on my computer I'd be able to develop my skills from there.

I'm thinking about buying a starter cursus for robotics, but they are kinda expensive.

So if you guys have any links/tips to get me started it would be of great help. ;)

(excuse my spelling, I'm not English)

Thanks already
Misc / FAA bans FPV (1st person goggles on drones), call to action
« Last post by Admin on June 29, 2014, 09:19:22 AM »
I got this in my email recently from Timothy of the DC Drones meetup group:

As many of you may have seen, the FAA recently issued an "Interpretation of the Special Rule for Model Aircraft" that you can read by clicking here. Our community and others that fly UAVs are deeply disappointed that the FAA has decided to take a very restrictive approach to this technology. Particularly problematic is their statement that flying with first person vision (FPV) goggles is not allowed. FPV has become a popular way for members of our community to experience the joys of flight and the FAA offers no basis either from a legal or safety perspective for its sudden effort to outlaw use of that technology for recreational flight.

We are going to need to band together to make sure that this technology that we've all worked so hard on doesn't get regulated out from under us. The FAA interpretation is open to public comment, and we strongly encourage you to post comments on the regulation.org website expressing your frustration with what is being proposed.
Electronics / Robotic arm that copies human arm

HI guys, im trying to create a robotic arm that can be controlled by human arm. I have seen and researched quite few concept. Now I am trying to recreate this concept from this video on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYG19lhlA3c . Any of you guys have a background on creating this? tia :)
Software / LAB volt 5250 Robotic arm
« Last post by Dur-e-Tabish on June 28, 2014, 12:26:48 AM »
Does anyone know how to add the option of linear slide in Matlab interface of Lab volt Robotic arm 5250??

Has anyone ever interfaced Robosim (Lab volt 5250 software) with Matlab??
