i cant really see a use for a motor controller having i2c? i thought it was just going to be plug'n'play type thing?
Quotei cant really see a use for a motor controller having i2c? i thought it was just going to be plug'n'play type thing?if we are using a axon do we really need i2c ( now that I have a rough understanding of it ( yea for me ) )we have 50 i/o pins.how much sensors/servos will we really need?
smash can you make a sketch in microsoft paint or something quick so I ( and probably some others on this topic ) can get a rough Idea on what this robot will look like?will it be a humanoid?wheeled?2 ft tall?5 ft tall?
yea that's the idea! but im hoping i can get some more people interested/building modules than just me and asellith. @dellagd for a tutorial on implementing c see i2c 101 and this http://www.instructables.com/id/I2C_Bus_for_ATtiny_and_ATmega/ i completely understand what i2c is and how to implement it and learnt it all in under a day!@project: if we had an mcu for every module wouldn't that mean programming every module? would it not make more sense to have like 3 modules plugged into one mcu which is plugged into the i2c bus, or would it be a one off program when we make the boards? i do want this board to be noob friendly i really do hope more people will pick up an interest tho, maybe if we can get some comps going like admin suggested in the other thread like a "best module design wins $50" or something along those lines...but im defiantly going to give this project my all and make a few modules as i think this idea is a really good one that has not been done before.
nice, im always up for optimism! but i don't think that mindstorms is all that good as you just put blocks together and "hey presto" i got a robot that i made all on my own. there isnt really much room for development as you are limited to what the have not what you can build.
yet. , no more talk about mindstorms or people, .
