Do you wish to make a manual robot like simple combat robot? To make a combat robot, there are few criteria that the robot must consist of such as main controller, transceiver, receiver, motors, and battery and of course the chassis with some weapons on it! Most people are not able to build the main controller, receiver and the transmitter as it involves circuit theory, power, and programming.
Nowadays, ICSP (In Circuit Serial Programmer) is starting to gain popularity and Cytron also encourage users to use ICSP instead of using universal programmer (where user needs to unplug the microcontroller) or bootloader. This article explains how to program the PIC MCU by using ICSP.
Although the conventional SC1 packaging is our most popular box but we always feel that it is a waste and harmful to our environment by having such a medium size box to pack a tiny product such as RE08A, UC00A
A mobile robot that is capable of auto navigating a path to a predefine destination and complete multiple tasks given such as goods transition, mobile security, mobile tour guide. It can even perform as a university research platform. Why MRP? MRP make you focus on your application which you no need to reinvent the robot hardware or redoing some basic programming again. MRP has do it all for you! Thus, it saves lots of time for investor.
Yes, it’s really hard to think of a robot with only 4 RC servos without any other actuator. The most common robot is wheel robot with only 2 360 degree rotate RC servos. But, actually you can notice that there is other examples of robot that build from 4 RC servos. One of them is Biped Walker. Thus, today i try to build this robot to test the performance. Another reason is recently we have come out with new product called IFC-RS08 which stand for RC Servo Card (8 Channel RC Servo Controller) and would like to build a application from this product. The construction are pretty easy if compare with other 6 RC Servo Biped. I use roughly 3-4 hours to successfully build and program this robot.
If you are robot hobbyist, then you must know Microchip Technology Inc. At least you should know theyare the designer and manufacture of PIC microcontroller which many of us using right now. Microchip has been offering a newsletter name microSOLUTIONS
