  1. 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 ).

    What is an Op Amp

  2. Beginners Robotics Guide : Basic Electronics - II

    This second tutorial introduces you to the basic circuit components like resistors , inductors , capacitors and how they work . Also what are the various laws involved and how to use them .

    Resistors

    We need some way to control the flow of current from a voltage source, like a battery, so we do not melt wires and blow up batteries. If you think of current, charge flow, in terms of water flow, a good electrical conductor is like big water pipe. Water mains and fire hoses ...
  3. Beginners Robotics Guide : Basic Electronics - I

    The goal of this tutorial is to provide some basic information about electronic circuits. We make the assumption that you have no prior knowledge of electronics, electricity, or circuits, and start from the basics. This is an unconventional approach, so it may be interesting, or at least amusing, even if you do have some experience.

    So, the first question is ``What is an electronic circuit?''. A circuit is a structure that directs and controls electric currents, presumably to perform ...
