  1. Robot Dynamics - Getting the Specs Right

    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 ...

  2. Competitions Robotics 3 - The Build and a Fast Line Follower using PID

    Last time we covered the hardware we needed to assemble our robot. This time lets assemble it quickly and get it moving. And do some hello world in robotics , which is Line Following.

    We will start with the Video of what we are going to achieve -

    If you are building this and already have bought the parts I will assume that you will need little help assembling it , but I would like to give some pointers so that ...

  3. No legged robot.


    When I started to make robots, a line follower was something out of the world. Well, those were the 'dark' ages, when PC existed only with the rich. The fastest machine ran at 44MHz, CD drives were not invented, and the huge old 5 1/4 floppy disks were stored in air conditioned rooms. Forget internet, forget microcontroller. The biggest names in electronics were the 8255, 8085 and the likes, which I have never seen. But then, there was vegakit. There were kits for running lights, ...
  4. Career in Robotics as a Engineer

    Ever dreamed of a robot that cleaned your house, washed your car or walked the dog? People would call you a mentally retarded guy if you voiced your opinion however that is not the case today. Rapid developments have made robotic technology professions among the most exciting available to recent graduates Positions within the robotics industry generally are the different stages of the engineering process. Some engineers, for example, are responsible for the planning as to how robotics might address ...
  5. PID - From Theory To Implmentation

    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 ...
