Programming in C/C++!!!
You keep telling us that C in important but no learning tutorial (you know learning about outputs, then inputs, then ADC e.t.c.!!!)
For either AVR or PIC!!

Maybe bascom is good (can include asm) but AVR studio is better!!!
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!

How about adding in basic logic gates. I know how they work now because of College classes, but when I first got interested in Robots I couldn't begin to design a circuit board. You could go into a complete circuit loop, AND, NAND, OR, NOR gates. Then move on to Multiplexers, Demultiplexers, Comparators, flip-flops, latches, and other complex gates.

How about a guide on basic tools and supplies needed for robot construction.
Like soldering iron, saw, power drill, etc. ?

Is machine shop tools what I'm talking about?

This might be complicated and you might not be able to, but what about a physics tutorial on flying robots, flight dynamics, fun :D

I would like to have a tutorial about selecting the write motor, I know you wrote one. I just want to know how to calculate the troque needed for robotic arm base. I have a motor which is connected to a gear and this gear is connected to another gear. The 2nd gear has a shaft which is connected to a plate, this plate form the robotic arm base. If something is not clear inform me via [email protected]. thanks in advance.

I know its been awhile since I've used this list to select tutorials to write . . .

but here we go:

With 55 votes, or 9.8%,
I now have up not one but TWO tutorials for serial on robots
http://www.societyofrobots.com/microcontroller_uart.shtml
http://www.societyofrobots.com/microcontroller_uart_50_robot.shtml
I will definitely be writing a bootloading tutorial in the next 2 months probably, adding a 3rd tutorial to my UART tutorial series - especially since the vote is high for Microcontroller Programming.
Those who voted for Serial & USB Programming now get a new vote. I am adding Bootloading as the newest item to vote on.

For those who have been wanting a better battery tutorial (29 votes at 5.1%), I wrote up a new energy tutorial and two calculators to help you out:
http://www.societyofrobots.com/mechanics_energy.shtml
http://www.societyofrobots.com/battery_calculator.shtml
http://www.societyofrobots.com/energy_calculator.shtml
Since I still feel the battery tutorial can be better, Ill keep the vote up for now. You can always change your vote if you are now satisfied . . .

Unfortunately there is a bug in the forum code that won't let me have more than 19 items to vote on, but as I complete tutorials Ill add new ones that were suggested.

Speaking of which, stop suggesting tutorials already in the vote! :P

how about a toutorial to learn microcontroller programming

i know that there are many different kinds but the micro controller i am interested in is the atmega8 from the $50 robot

or the atmega168

from the $50 robot

Hey,

   Me too interested in programming of micro controllers. Got held up while doing the 50$ :(. So I thought I'll learn programming myself as the chips ATmega8 etc are hard to get around here and copy paste programming wont do in the future  :P.
 
  Here the onus is on PIC programming as nobody in my area of study knows anything besides that.

   So plz...Somebody out of experience tell me the best way to learn PIC..... I think people are using 16S84 or something like that over here....

  Thanx in advance... :)

the pic 16f84a i think thats what you mean is very limited in its use, it has a small programming space, no analogue converters, no uart, no i2c. Its just a basic digital i/0 style.

I think it would be best to start with pic18's since they are optimised for c code.

www.microchipc.com has some basic examples of how to program them

welll... first of all i would like to see a tutorial of writing a code for a microcontroller :) C would be nice :) i dont know if anybody has allready offered it but its the thing i would need mostly :)
next if there is a tutorial about digital and analog inputs and outputs and development boards of stuff like that. i mean like a tutorial that explains everithing about a development board:what is it and etc... if there is one then please tell me :) and if there isn't then anybody could make it :)

can you write a step by step tutorial on building a remote controlled racing car that can even avoid obstacles. most of the contests involve racing. by your tutorial we will be able to understand the complete basics. ;D

Just a bit more info on the necessary tools required would be nice. For example, the tutorial on soldering would be a nice addition.

There should be a book - "Safety for Dummies"  ;D

EDIT: lol guess what there already is a book like that:

not sure if it's for robotics though  :-\

Another quickie suggestion would be intercommunication between several mcu's - ie. a system communication protocol.
