Robot

Monday, December 31st, 2007

So I got a lot of electronic bits for Christmas, including some prototyping boards, a pile of assorted components and an arduino.

Current goals include

  1. (re-)learning elementary electronics (I’ve managed to fry three salvaged transistors and an LED this afternoon already)
  2. Building a pair of H-bridge motor controllers to drive my robot shell
  3. Building a 2dof camera gimble to drive the £5 webcam I bought at tescos last week
  4. Getting some i2c ultrasonics and IR sensors and hooking them up.
  5. Linking all these things to my slug
  6. Powering everything from an NiMH battery pack.
