oh like the minitchure solar cars that go around a track, or some thing similar.

I was just wondering as i am participating in the world solar challenge in october with a few other SA schools in a TAFE SA car.

Can you tell me how can i build my robot? i wanna build a self leveling table controlled by two servo motors which takes signal from a (DE-ACCM3D) accelerometer bought from DimensionEngineering ,i found a video in the you tube called accelerometer demo, i think my project is similar to that.
How can i get the code for such project and how can i make a communication between the sensor and the pic micro controller and the servo motors.
Thank you,

A "remote control" tutorial would be nice, more than the buy a controller and receivers.  More like attaching a usb or serial game pad (or an xbox for that matter) or wireless control using and NDS or Iphone/Android phone or even a netbook.  I would love to be able to control my robot from my G1 or even my netbook wirelessly

hmm. 10 pages. I think You have your hands full already, but I'll still add my voice to it.


I don't think I've seen one on Color LCD screens and graphic displays. I would much rather attach a big colorful screen to my bot then tie it down to a computer and data log.

I personally would like a tutorial on a camera module like AVRcam or CMUcam and how to use it on microcontrollers. I have looked on the internet for resources, but none are actually focusing on the programming, hardware, or the whole microcontroller setup, they usually just have a just lecture like feel about how some image processing works, and lack the actual jump from knowing how it works to using a camera module. Hope tht someday I can actually learn how to interface one of these modules to my microcontroller, especially from a tutorial on this site.

I think that with the pervasiveness of laptops and netbooks a tutorial on creating a laptop\netbook based robot would be great.  The robot would be controlled by some board that is connected to the laptop USB port.  Other sensors could also come in over the USB ports like webcams, range finders, etc.

I am astonished that there aren't more premade kits for laptop based robots on the market.  The ER1 was a bit ahead of its time in that sense...

Anyone want a tutorial on something robot related? I can write one up if anyone thinks something is difficult to do/understand. Otherwise I am just guessing what tutorials are useful for you.

Post ideas for some here.

I know electronics and taught myself programming but metal work has got me baffled.  Can you do something with fab work and brazing?  Something along those lines please.

BASIC HELP with axon 2
« Reply #287 on: March 30, 2010, 05:21:38 AM »
Hi, I am just a beginner here so please dont find my questions ridiculous :S. I am planning to make a robot car. I already got the axon 2 microcontroller. Now my first objective is to control a dc motor and a servo using the axon via bluetooth using my computer. So can anyone give me a head start. I already downloaded all the software and all, but which one do i actually sue to program the axon? :S... n jus to add one more silly question, do i need to power my axon with a batter even though im connected to it using a USB?

to be brief, im actually looking for a mentor for my project, so would any one be kind enough to be my mentor.. the keywords for my project would be:
axon 2 (microcontroller)
servo motor control
 bluetooth
integrated camera (if there is enough time).

thanks a lot and hope to get a reply soon. :)

and what exactly do u mean by "remote control"?
like and RC car or something like where the robot takes info from a RC transmitter, takes that info for some kind of a command, then excecutes a certain set(s) of action?

Hi,

Can someone/admin please write a nice tutorial on a/d conversion.
I know there are few links which can guide me on a2d conversion. However, somehow I feel that I am not able to understand that.

I tried google and also in avrfreaks, but am lost somewhere in between as I just get an overall brief of a2d.

If someone can write a tut on this, my request would be a detailed description on the following:

ARef (reference voltage)
ADC Prescaler
ADC Channels
ADC registers: ADMux, ADCSRA(ADEN, ADSC, ADIF, helpful if all bit names and explanation is given), ADCL, ADCH

A complete code for conversion, using any ATmega. (I am using ATmega8).

I have the 50$ code which I use for conversion. However it is like I dont understand anything out of it. If I need something, I just add the entire file and then call the function, without understanding what and how it does.

Hello Admin,

I have been working through your tutorials for a 3 or 4 weeks now, and being a programmer, not an electrical engineer, or engineer of any sort at that :P, I have learned a lot from your forums / tutorials. 

First of all, I would like to thank you very much for what you are doing... this is great and a lot more helpful and easier to soak up then a good chunk of the information out there.  I could go on and on about how much I appreciate this site ... but on the other hand, I don't want to high jack this forum!

I have searched all over, was wondering if you could provide a tutorial on how to interact the LCD with a robot.  Perhaps a simple tutorial could be, hooking the LCD screen up to the $50 Robot, and simply just displaying, "forward" when moving forward, "backward" when moving backwards, just for us to get our feet wet!

I would love a tutorial on flying robots and underwater robots, as well as "bio-robots" (robots that look like animals) ;D
Oh and voice recognition too.

Thanks
