hahaha thank you! I'm new on it
at least, I didn't use any microcontroller on this 2 prototypes. I was restricted to use only what they teach at school [this project is also for school grades xD] so the logic I used was based on TTL technology. Futurely I want to build one using microcontrollers and a HMI that makes the client choose some logic options or enable/disable sensors virtually. What do you think?
Back in high school (yikes...'93 or so?) we built a system like this for a "Photovoltaics Fair" -- basically the same idea you have, except also powered by solar cells. Our idea was that it should be a window for an attic or upstairs window, to help with attic venting on hot days, etc.
Back at that time, we didn't have the variety of micro-controllers now available, so everything was done with old-fashioned logic -- comparators, relays, etc. It was a nightmare to get the settings right (we based the open/close decision on the "rain" sensor as well as "internal" and "external" temperature sensors and light level). Would be fun to do something like this again!
brilliant, have you ever thought about transmit pictures from it?
very good project, congratulations! what's its real size?
me too haha, awesome project! what kind of software do used to program it?
very interesting man! do you have any vídeos?
very nice robot! do used an especfic lego kit or just mixes pieces?
Dear Sorg, thanks! If you want to know more details please visit our website: www.nexusrobot.com.
Very nice, congratulations!
We control the speed and also the torque. Results from the latest firmware have been amazing.
I find most arms boring and slow with perch-PAUSE-approach-PAUSE-place-PAUSE-retract
In addition to pc software control, we have a record and playback feature, simply push the record button, manipulate the arm, then run it with the playback multiplier.
It does the 'Aliens' robot knife trick in a very scary way [ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suA2Hy-0mxI ]
We are working hard to get this product right and we still have all our
fingers so far!
Thanks for your comment.
Don't you think it is too speedy to do human arm work?
Can you control its speed?
I hope it works better than your websites.
I hope it works better than your websites.
I am Cynthia, how are u doing today
i saw your profile after a tedious search on the internet and i became interested in you and i will like to know more about you ok.
if you can reply me back in my email address (email@example.com) i will send to you my pictures and tell you more about me.
i hope we can move from here,
i will be waiting for your mail to me email address above.
Update: the contest winner finally cracked apart the XV-11. Now we know what image sensor is used. We can build our own!
Would xevel be nice enough to explain a bit about what he is doing in this video post?
What is meant by this video? there is no audio or explanation of what is going on? what is the device being used (besides the lidar unit on top)? Is the device autonomous or controlled by wires / the remote control ? could someone be nice enough to explain how they took the lidar unit and used it to map the path ? Thanks
Well what are we waiting for ? the paper talks about a $30 lidar unit. We can surely do something similar atleast in the beginning. If one had the resources one would certainly do it. They talk about this REVO LDS (lidar) but apparently it doesnt exist and no one is making something similar which is unfortunate.
Hi is anyone willing to sell their lidar unit once they are done with it ?
Xevel, one would like to know how you attached the unit to your movable platform (and what movable platform is it?)
Please email me directly at my user name above (arthuroforange ) that has an account at gmail. Thanks
Yeah u can go for it.
All you have to do is start with open Cv basics like hoe to recognise different objects, for that first of all work on color detection in OPEN CV.
AS soon as you completes this then start to work on hardware.You may be knowing about some of the basics of robotics???? Do you??
Then you can do is, start working for image processing first that is tracing objects in a still image, as soon as u finish this command over to the video processing which is only a little more than image processing.
Any other problems are welcomed !!
