Cytron received an inquiry from our precious customer today. The question is about measuring water level using Analog Distance Sensor (SN-GP2Y0A21). He (i think is a ‘he’) asked whether the infrared beam will penetrate the water, or instead, reflect by the water surface. That’s an interesting question which has never come over my mind. So I decided to conduct a quick experiment after my lunch.
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.
Another ROBOCON Workshop have been successfully conducted in KKTM (Kolej Kemahiran Tinggi Mara) Balik Pulau, Penang. They are first timer in ROBOCON, so please welcome them! The workshop started on 24th Feb 2009 (Tuesday), there are around 12 students and 10 lecturers involve in the workshop. After collecting all necessary component, material and peoples, the workshop begin at around 10am. The venue is located at Microcontroller lab in KKTM Balik Pulau. History of ROBOCON sound…
