The motors controller is designed to control up to four brushed DC motors. It uses 32-bit ARM-based microcontroller. The device is suitable to control drives of mobile robots with two or four wheels. There are also implemented a lot of other features, so the device can be used for other purposes as well.
The presented mobile robot was equipped with the autonomous navigation system in ROS framework, mainly based on data from Microsoft Kinect sensor. The robot has four independently driven wheels and is rather small. The width… Read More »The four-wheeled mobile robot with the autonomous navigation system in ROS
The wheeled mobile robot has been created in 2013. The main reason why I have built this robot was the need to do tests of localization algorithms. The mobile robot can be used mainly in inspection tasks to keep an eye on the specific area. However, the advanced sensory system of robot provides a significant universality. Moreover, the robot equipped with a manipulator can be used in manipulation or transportation tasks.
I want to show you a two-wheeled mobile robot for a mini-sumo competition designed and made in 2011. Assumptions concerning the mechanical part of the robot: Length and height below 10 cm, mass below 500… Read More »Two-wheeled mobile robot for mini-sumo competition
The presented set of power supplies was made in 2010 and it contains two devices. One of them is my first electronics construction. The second one is a modified computer ATX power supply. This post is focused on the first device what means power supply with flexible voltage and maximum current fuse.
The assumptions about created power supply were simply: practical construction and low cost.
