1. #### Robot Dynamics - Getting the Specs Right

by , 05-18-2011 at 03:14 AM
Well this article covers the dynamics involved in making a good robot! So let’s see what are the dynamics involved in making a perfect Robot there are many factors that can affect like RPM torque of the motor, diameter of the wheel friction between the tyres and the floor etc. We shall discuss how to calculate your requirement and then proceed into its application. For that you’ll need to brush up your knowledge of kinematics and dynamics the first few pages explain the concept’s involved if you ...

What is PID?

Ok so what is this PID and why is it much talked? Well, PID means proportional–integral–derivative and it is a control feedback method applied in different control systems, its main task is to minimize the error of whatever you are about to control. It is superior quality error control feedback mechanism and the general industry standard. Speaking simple it takes in the inputs ...

by , 03-06-2010 at 12:34 PM
A small introduction to stepper motors and how to use them and the circuit and logic required to get them up and running .

Stepper Motor?? ehh...

Stepper Motor is widely used in CNC machine drives, robots, and wherever an accurate positioning is required. In such applications, step angle, direction, operating modes( single coil or double coil), speed and position are important considerations.

You might be thinking ..Why stepper? why not servo? ...

IMAGE ACQUISITION

Image acquisition nowadays can be done in various ways either by connecting a CCD camera or digital stream input from some other source can be used. These input streams can be interfaced either by VFW( Video for windows) Interface in Microsoft OS platforms or VFL (Video For Linux) interface in Unix based platforms. Every visual programming language nowadays provide
suitable library routines to access these services.
