That's the semi auto pilot I'll be doing first of all...

Some gyros and accelerometers will do...

Still I wait for that samples from analog.... hope they get here so I start working...

Anyways, I soon as I finish my exams, I 'll be working on it...

Cheers,

For whom the interrupts toll...


P.S. I've been inactive for almost a year... Don't give promises but I'll try to complete my tutorials. I'll let you know when..

Cheers!

Hey Benji,

I'm somewhat experienced in programming...  I wouldn't mind pitching in.

welcome to the team!   :D

Sorry, didn't understand how to interpret your post, the link to your soon to be book threw me off.  Am I on the team?

hey photray , you can be one of the authors sure, just tell us what you are willing to write about
the book is called THE BOOK OF ALGORITHMS
so clearly you should write about an algorithm and a sample code implementation.
and you have to show how the algorithm can be usefull in a robot,,
you can still read this thread for more information
the main idea of the book its that we'r trying to make a second level tutorial in robotics
as we have the admins 50$ robot tutorial for the beginners
so we'r tryin to write about a little more advanced algorithms

i actually would recommend someone to write about PID and how to implement it on a robot,,as many questions are asked about it

the link I sent you describes the project that is detailed in this thread. And yes you are on the team if you write an article. The guidelines for writing an article is on that page I linked you to.

Hmmm, well, you'll have to give me some time.  Things are somewhat busy this summer so I'll see what I can do.  No guarantees.

I have already partly done a maze flooding algorithm that can be included in this project when finished.

Its the maze solving part of this tutorial - http://www.societyofrobots.com/member_tutorials/node/94

Hmmm... PID is pretty diverse.  I don't know a whole lot about it, but I do know PID control algorithms are mostly used in large-scale process industries.  I'll do some research for now.

But, I was thinking.  What about a small section of the book that's a crash course on straight up programming?  Although yes, it's assumed the reader has knowledge on programming before reading the book it'd be useful.  I could write a huge article on C or C++ if you'd like.  I'm much more a programmer then a robotocist, maybe this isn't the work for me  :-[

i could try to do it, but i wont be able to whip it up quickly, i have tonnes to do at home.

I have just made this flash app which can be in the tutorial when its finished. Here it is

Only Proportional control works at the moment.

When finished it will have all 3 P I and D, and some preset constant values which will demonstrate situations explained in the tutorial.

Whattdya think?

nice flash,, try to complete it and if you make a good explanation of how the PID works it would be awsome
you still have nearly a month till the 1st of august,,
if we can have some more intresting articles to be added and people cant get it ready till 1st august then
airman,,how about lettin it be on 1st spetember ?
i dunno, i strongly recommend this PID stuff

Getting something done for the 1st of August will be impossible for me. 1st September is better.

For flash - there are some good video tutorials on lynda.com for flash. But if you are familiar with a few computer languages then after looking at a couple of source codes on the internet you will have no problem just diving straight in.

I guess I'm not much of an expert in this field, so I'm not going to try to write a professional or even sub-professional article for your book.  Trust me, you'll thank yourself.  Lol, I hereby quit the team I never officially joined, sorry!  ;)

ye for sure


I just got another contest due July 13 .... so it;ll be a little slow. I'll still be available to review others and arrange the compiling , etc.


what have you guys done so far, I;ve done nothing but outline my tutorial

July 8th.......

I have some progress to report
I wrote up around 2 pages so far on line following using IR sensors algorithms

anybody else get anything done?

all right , fine i guess


I have to work on that instructables contest anyways . Do you know if the winner is chosen by votes only or by judges as well?
