Misc / Real Robots Live - multiplayer real life robotics game - call for ideas
« Last post by lewisRRL on May 04, 2015, 11:32:28 AM »
Hi guys,

Just wanted to make you all aware of a new project, and gather your ideas.
The project is called Real Robots Live and will make it possible to log onto a live robot over the internet and drive it around a remote arena.
You'll have full control over the robot via the software and will be able to see the camera images that stream from the robot's perspective. It's a high res, low latency feed on the robots and around the arena.
Lots of these robots will be playing in the same arena - a real life online multiplayer game!
We want robots to be able to construct structures, destroy them using weapons and interact with the arena (opening doors).
Once online, we want to setup RealRobotsLiveTV so everyone can watch live events.

This is a call for ideas. This is a game with the real world as it's engine. What would you like to see in this?

Check out our videos: website
Follow us on twitter and
facebook

In 2-3 months we are aiming to crowdfund the project.

Cheers,
Lewis

It wasn't the resistors I needed, but the sensors . . .   :P

Anyway, I found them here:
http://www.digikey.com/product-search/en/integrated-circuits-ics/linear-amplifiers-instrumentation-op-amps-buffer-amps/2556125?stock=1

They were listed as op-amps and not as current sensors.

 :) Hello!
At this site;
http://www.ohmite.com
Has the item you are looking for. Select the current sensing part in the
web page, and it will take you to the various products they offer.  8)

 ;D Hello!
I found that Mouser has the item you are looking for, up to 200 watts.
They sell it as basic 4 kelvin current sensor. By the name, I would assume
that the calculations are based on heat. They are very accurate.  :)
 This link has the PDF info that will help;

Good luck!  ;D ;D ;D

Electronics / ohmic current sensors - still being sold?
« Last post by Admin on May 04, 2015, 07:23:14 AM »
I'm looking for some smd ohmic current sensors, up to 10A, preferably soic 8 pin. Unfortunately my circuit has massive magnetic field noise so need the resistive type.

They were very common 10 years ago, but it seems the entire industry has moved to hall effect current sensors.

Anyone seen them being sold anywhere? I still see current sense resistors being sold, so someone must be need them . . .

I will try going the cheapest route first. A single board voice control by Ardunio may do the trick.
This will suffice for simple control of motors, as you have indicated. I think Wow-wee toys sell
a toy called Robosapien that may have voice control already. (I would rather program one.  ;D )
For the more advanced voice commands, will be quite a programming job. You will have to buy
the software I am using, if you go that direction. I will cover the basic programming first in the Axon,
for testing and base coding purposes.(So you know your Axon is working, or if you blew a port:'( )
This builds the basic code "toolbox" to build upon. You will always need to check out other ports
and features. The Axon you are using is not only good for a hobby, but you may find, a tool that you
can not do without.(Like the Sonic Screwdriver on Dr. Who;D ;D ;D )

Okay so you are very close to the goal.

 ;D Thanks!
I bought a quadcopter recently, used, and have a lot of work to do on it. :'(
but, that is ok. I enjoy the challenge. Do you have any links or sites that discuss
the coding and construction of the quadcopters? ;D ;D ;D ;D

 ;D Hello!
Still working on the program. Have located more info on the speech control. Just have to
be able to download a program to the Axon.  :-\
