ti-84 plus in robotics?
« on: April 25, 2008, 08:07:09 PM »
I know the io port in my ti84 can be used for sensors, as well as the usb port, and tuts for using the ti84 as a robot board?

As a novelty hardware hack, I'd say it is possible. But if you wanted the most capable robot you personally could make, I'd say you could do much better with less hackery using a decent micro  such as an AVR, ARM, or PIC.

BTW, does anybody have any links on how the I/O protocol works for the TI89? (I believe it's the same as TI84) Because I've wanted to try to make a sort or robotics platform for a calculator for a while now... But it's hard to find that kind of info on the web...

my thoughts were that you could use it to store information, and preform calculations, it would probobly be very usefull if your robotics project involved complicated trig problems for figuring out location, since alot of that stuff seems to be hard to put on a small pic or avr.
