Here's some various electronics I've built over the years to help me with my robotics.
I've added a new robot Feynman Jr. 2. The goal of this robot is to follow me around.
Of all the things I wish I could have purchased off-the-shelf, it would have been a brain.
Another idea that I've been working on is creating a book that's about computer vision.
I am in the process of creating another book on robotics programming. Simpler, easier to read and use, including a DVD with all the source code and a Virtual Machine.
I was thinking of making a kit and assembly instruction video on building a robot in 10 minutes.
Well after a year or so I have updated the look and feel of the site.
I was able to take Feynman Jr. and Carnot to CodeMash 126.96.36.199. The conference was awesome and I learned a little about my robots during the event.
I have been working on a smaller version of a robot than Feynman 6, called Feynman Jr. I have also begun to refactor my Java API so that it will work with my new robots.
For those Basic Stamp 2 users out there. Just use RCTIME with a simple circuit. Depending on the values of your capacitor and resistors you can equate your RCTIME value to your voltage.
I talked about my robot Feynman6 at the Central Ohio Java Users group on Tuesday March 13, 2007.
Robotics Programming 101 shows how program a real robot, speech, vision, more...
This extra highlights all of the Ubuntu specific robotics configuration details in Robotics Programming 101.
This extra shows you how to write a motion detector for your robot with a network or web camera.
This was my first book on robotics and using the Java Language to interface between sensors, motors and microcontrollers with a PC capable of doing speech and vision.
