Inputs for Lowest Cost Linux Board Possible

by vikas on 02-16-2012 at 01:18 PM
We at RoboticsIndia(@baseapp) are planning a new project to work on , like the title says the lowest cost breadboard friendly linux Core board.

The whole idea is to put the full BOM + Fab under < USD 25 at say 100x quantity.

Rasperry pi is great , but i cannot duplicate it or ship it inside my product to a client. BGA is not cheap.

So the Ideas is to make a low cost mbed like board which can run linux and the user can put inside product or develop

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

by vikas on 04-25-2011 at 02:16 AM
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

Competition Robotics - General Purpose high performance robot (Part 2)

by vikas on 02-20-2011 at 08:26 PM
In the last part we had gone over some ground work on how to build a fast robot. If you had missed it you can read it here.

So this time lets start with some robot building, like in previous article our target was a fast, small robot capable of solving problems like mazes , line following , soccer , picking and dragging things etc. When building we will go over the headings covered last time and pick items appropriately. The best commercial example of a robot which somewhat fulfills

Competition Robotics Building to Win ( Part 1 )

by vikas on 02-04-2011 at 08:03 PM

But most people end up building the same old robots making the same mistakes year after year and I am not really seeing any improvements in robots which participate in this competitions. So I thought to start a series on how to build better robots for most of these competitions with some tips to help you win. Proposed specifications are of target robot which should be able to

Simple Optical/Rotary Encoder Generator

by vikas on 03-14-2010 at 10:02 AM
Was building a simple Rotary Encoder for the ARP platofrm yesterday. Could not find a simple tool to generate the pattern according to my needs, there were some POstscript based tools but they did not work on WIndows.

So here is my little script to generate it ...

PHP Code:

("Content-type: image/gif");

$size = isset($_GET['size'])?intval($_GET['size']):200;
$size1 = isset($_GET['size1'])?intval($_GET['size1']):0;
$count = isset($_GET['count'])?intval($_GET['count']):10
