  1. Slaves to drive Robots !!

    Man has known to grow lazier, over the entire evolution phase. lazy - so how to do work??
    Catch an animal and 'make' it do his job!!

    This evolution of mans' laziness has seen all kinds of animals - smaller than and larger than man himself- put to use as his slave, to do his job at his bidding.

    Then came the Machines. They did better than Man & his slave animals put together. Animal slaves were fast replaced by Machines in all walks of the Human race.

  2. Beginners Robotics Guide : Basic Mechanics

    The branch of physics that deals with the action of forces on matter is referred to as mechanics. All considerations of motion are addressed by mechanics, as well as the transmission of forces through the use of simple machines. In this article , the goal is a mechanical goal (placing blocks into a bin) and electronics are used to control the mechanics.

    Describing motion involves more than just saying that an object moved three feet to the right. The magnitude and direction of the ...

  3. Beginners Robotics Guide : OP-Amps in Robotics

    In this article we will have a look at Operational Amplifiers ( OP AMPS ) which are heavily used in robotics and interfacing sensors . The article is meant for people with no knowledge of Op-Amps to those who know some things about them . It starts of explaining the basics then moves to type of operations which an op-amp can perform lastly gives a few examples of where these are used in a simple robot ( line follower , fire fighting , sonar based , BEAM ).

  4. Robot Dynamics - Getting the Specs Right

    Well this article covers the dynamics involved in making a good robot! So letís 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 youíll need to brush up your knowledge of kinematics and dynamics the first few pages explain the conceptís involved if you ...

  5. Arduino/Riduino Motor Shield - Single Sided DIY

    I wanted a single sided motor shield which would allow me to control a few servos and 2 DC Motors. All this while allowing easy sensor interfacing. The shield had to be single sided and DIP for DIY.

    The shield given below is the result for the same.
