The SoR Book Project
« on: August 30, 2008, 10:06:14 PM »
This is where the discussion will continue for the SoR book project . The old thread's title was confusing
The old thread is here http://www.societyofrobots.com/robotforum/index.php?topic=4060.180

The official page for the book project : http://www.societyofrobots.com/member_tutorials/node/115

I wrote the first article : PING Ultrasonic Rangefinder - many thanks to pomprocker for his code in C.
http://www.societyofrobots.com/member_tutorials/node/194
I have yet to perfect it ( i need to add a wiring diagram of it)

I need people to keep on adding articles. You can use other peoples code  and just explain it or make it clearer( ask permission of course) .

Will the C code work if there is more than one PING sensor - or any other device that might reset timer0 ?

if they are done one after another then there shouldn't be a problem

anyone want to help me add some more sensor articles?
The one I am doing next is control of a servo through software delays.

Please help out !

Glad to help if I can. - and if I have the components to do it. What do you need?

Do any component besides the PING Ultrasonic Sensor and servos

Follow this as a template : http://www.societyofrobots.com/member_tutorials/node/194
(Also put up a wiring diagram for the sensor , I will do that for my page today)

Thanks for any help

The older thread talked about making and selling the book, and the problems associated with it.

Well, Asellith suggested that we can make and/or sell it here pretty easy:
http://www.cafepress.com/societyofrobots

We would mark up the price some amount, and distribute it however you guys decide. I can do free bank transfers, so it'd be pretty simple and paperless if that's what you guys decide.

just a thought . . .

I'd love to sell the book through cafepress

I just need some more people to help write articles . Remember people , all you have to do is make something in the same format as this: http://www.societyofrobots.com/member_tutorials/node/194 . The information and code need not all be yours .Just make sure to credit where you got the code from and also you might need to comment it a bit more .

I'm working on a second article as we speak about IR Rangefinders ( and I'll upload a wiring diagram of the PING ultrasonic sensor sometimes tomorrow night).
I'll do regular digital bump switches and IR line following switches later next week. ( at least I'll try to do them all)

@Admin : I have a tutorial already done regarding servos , but it is heavily based off your tutorial. How should I credit you in the tutorial?

Just FYI airman, that ping tutorial is still under construction. I have since cleaned up my ping function a bit.

Ideally you don't want to duplicate content, just link over and say, 'for more info on blah blah blah, see this link'.

On certain occasions, you just want to give the reader a quick summary of some other work, in which case you'd do something like:

"Due to noise and control circuitry requirements, servos are less efficient than DC motors uncontrolled." - admin, [link]

(notice how the link goes directly to the content, and not just the page)

If you want to be professional, such as for publishing a book, you can also use the IEEE accepted reference format (just look at my robot fish papers for examples).

FYI, I do plan to rewrite a lot of my older tutorials in the coming months . . . they are rather embarrassing to my standards/knowledge today . . . so give me a heads up on any quotes in case I make changes . . .

I would like to do an article on IR line following or something. I ordered the parts for my next robot which will be a line follower.

Awesome! When do you think you'll have it done by?

For the same reason I didn't volunteer to write articles...

I started my article http://www.societyofrobots.com/member_tutorials/node/225 is it OK if I only cover line following with 2 sensors (one on each side of the line)?

yep its perfect!

Tell me when its done - I'll convert the C code to BASIC and add anything you're missing

Hi all
As a reminder I have a kalman filter chapter already written for whenever the book is ready to be put together.
 (also I have not been signing as often as I used to so send me a message if you need something)
