Balancing Robot (got my parts, lets build it)
« on: December 25, 2006, 01:54:07 PM »
So, Hello, Glad to see my robot post is still on the top  ;D   heres my situation

i got my idg300 gyroscope on a preassembled board,   same thing for the adxl311eb accelerometer, i hooked them up to an oscilloscope and they seem to work fine. The accelermeter seems to be able to tell which way is down. The gyroscope seems to tell rate of turn. With high voltages meaning its turning fast and vice versa. Also got my motors.  A little slow, but il just use some big wheels. If anyone has seen any big slime lightweight wheels online, gimme a link. Thanks.  So pretty much, im going to need ALL of you on the forum to get this project to go. Afterwards i will take videos and pictures and you can post a tutorial, or i will, on the site, to show what was done. Might bring more visitors? Anyways i got my plastic also, i modeled an idea of what i think il make it look like in cad, heres a rendered picture. Gimme comments and criticism. Also, ive started to learn c but i wont be able to do the whole kalman filter thing.http://www.rotomotion.com/downloads/tilt.c or maybe a complementary filter? http://www.wulabs.org/research/bbot/inertial.pdfI have noooo idea. Its very advanced, maybe someone with more programming knowledge and I could hook up some how and put something together.(as you will have to know my i/o and use a compiler for my board(stillunknown)) Thanks, this should be a very interesting project and i hope you will all help out. Merry Christmas
il be getting a motor driver and building a voltage limiter or w/e, dad is an EE, thanks again
Erik

when you get the bot working, ill hook you up with an account for your own webspace :)

as for programming everything, just get one component working at a time. if you try to do everything at once its hard to debug . . . i dont think anyone in the forum has built this type of robot yet, so i wish you luck  :)
