Misc / Re: Best Programming Language Used in Robotics

 ;D Hello!
My first instinct is to say, AXON, but I have not had much luck with the coding and construction,
yet. To answer the question from beginning to end, form follows function. Simple robots should be
simple to program and assemble, and thus, my recommendation follows;
 My honest opinion, at this time, is to go to Parallax. com. They have very simple basic stamps,
easy to program, put together, understand, and plenty of support. PBASIC is the language they use. The Parallax propeller is more advanced, and has root languages that can be used together.
Good Luck!   ;) :) :D ;D

 ;D Hello!
Looks like you got an all terrain rolling robot to make there!  :o
I would assume that they would force your robot to cross all the types of terrains,
in spite of the one you may design your robot for.(Thinking ahead,  ;) )
If it is to get to the finish, then a usage of logistics would be your best bet. This science would
help you divine the best way to get to the target.
As for the design of the robot, far be it for me, to take away your fun! I would consider power consumption
per change or terrain, or multiple trips.
If terrain changes unexpectedly, maybe you could use a flying drone with your base robot to help
navigate the surprise terrain. Good Luck!  ;) :) :D ;D

Hi guys, I am a student at the University of Manchester and I currently raising funds to help me with my robotics project for the competition above (@ ) . I will really appreciate any help and donation. Thank you. Please click link to find out more.
Software / connecting a nxt to a hitechnic motor controller programming
« Last post by tacobrosz89 on March 02, 2016, 10:23:03 AM »
My friend and I started making a mini sumo bot for the NRC and we are trying to get a HiTechnic DC Motor Controller for TETRIX to become compatible with a NXT mind and we are programming with the NXT Mindstorm programming, our main problem is trying to find a way to get the motor PID that we downloaded to work on with the programming, any advice would be appreciated.

 ;D Hello!
I started the post, "Analyzing the Axon: Coding, Construction, and Contraptions." I have found that
loading the program and compiling the source code to begin is the toughest part. I have seen a few
people on the forum say that have not had any problems. I have not seen any examples of full
source code for their projects. I will be working on the problem for quite a while. I am sure it is simple,
that is why I am having such a problem.   :'( :'( :'(

;D Hello!
I have started a post that will try to cover every nut and bolt needed to build an Airwheel S3T, from the very begining. I hope I am successfull.  8)

Sweet, I'll give it a look.  Thanks!  :D

Update: Checked it out and debating on purchase.  Will post pics if I decide to get it!
Electronics / Re: Hardware issue Axon II with Maxbotix EZ1 sonar
« Last post by Sasounet on February 24, 2016, 11:39:50 AM »
Sounds odd.  Just to check a few things... which pin(s) specifically are you using?  Do you have a large number of other devices attached to your Axon II?

The current project has the following attached to the Axon II:

Two servos on slot B5 and B6
The EZ1 sonar on ADC#3 (but I tried ADC#1 and ADC#6 with the same result)
The signal pin of A0 (and ground) is attached to a stepper motor driver that needs only a pulse to rotate a step

The servos and stepper motor works perfectly. For the stepper, the program output a pulse of 10ms on the A0 pin. (Nothing is attached to the A0 5V pin).

Obviously I used the "AN" output pin on the sonar connected to the ADC signal input pin of the ADC header. I also connected the 5V and ground  from the sonar to the appropriate pins on ADC#3 (The usual 3 pins connector)

Finally I am 90% that the sonar displayed the same behavior when there was only one servo connected. But that was a long time ago so I am not 100% sure.
