TTL Serial Re-purposing of Modern Robotics motor controllers?
I'm looking at some off-season educational opportunities, and was wondering if anyone had success in using the TTL Serial connections on the Modern Robotics Motor Controllers (45-2203) to interface them to an arduino? There is an arduino library for the chipset onboard, but I'm unsure how the library will respond to two chips present. Has anyone found other uses for older Modern Robotics components?
Any 2 wheeled robot suggestions? I have only made multiple robotic arms. But never a wheeled robot, the robot is kinda like the throwbot (you can google if you are interested) And im looking for a not so loud motor that can do the job, the robots inner diameter is going to be maybe like 40-60mm?
¿Has anyone figured out how to apply machine learning to robotic motor control in a practical way?
Deep learning applied to a robot requires hundreds of millions of simulations to adapt. If Atlas were based on AI instead of Hardcoding, 10,000 (?) Robots would have been crashed before making a decent backflip. This would mean too many losses for a project ... But what if we let it develop in a very sophisticated virtual reality? We could do millions of simulations without breaking any robot. Any engineer who can corroborate my idea?
Hello so recently I purchased two of these motors. With that said after trying to build a 1kg sumo robot with them I noticed the motors completely burned out after trying to push something roughly 1.2 kg. So I did some research on some better motors but I can't find anything that is not over $20. I want to go with 4 motors now on my bot but buying 4 motors for over $20 a piece is a bit steep. Any suggestions for motors that are not from china? I am on a deadline to get this done. Thanks!
Our Vex Robotics motors give the illusion of heatsinks. We opened it because our motors were very cold to touch, when registering very hot. THERE IS NO HEATSINK! We're basically baking our motors alive.
Can anyone suggest a tutorial or some tips on how to create robot movement and motor sounds? I'm talking about the small movement of their head or arms, or an "engage" action. I'd like to be able to recreate these sounds in Serum if possible, but open to any suggestions!
We're having issues with LabView and our robot moving, the issues pertain to the all of the robot's motors stuttering when active. Say if I push and hold a button which I have linked to spin a motor, the motor will spin, but it spins by receiving spurts of power, like little bursts that keep it moving, but it's not continuous. I'm not sure if its a coding issue or not but I believe it is a coding issue because when trying to fix this we used 2 separate roboRios and switched drive trains entirely, but we also created a new project in LabView and coded just the drive motors (tank drive with 2 dual motors) and we had the same issue. We're not sure what to do now as nothing seems to work. Here are the links to my Begin and Teleop code pictures, please let me know if I'm doing something wrong, and yes, one of the things' name is Jeff: https://imgur.com/a/BiVkBwt
Hey guys, I am struggling with the power on my robot. My robot uses an Arduino board with a Motor Shield, 2 dc Motors, 1 Ultrasonic Module HC-SR04 and 1 Pcs Tower Pro SG-90. I have programmed the robot to move forwards, stop look around and move forward as shown in the video below. My robot struggles to rotate the DC motors (the wheels) and I have no idea why. I can hear a sound coming from the motors as they attempt to spin. Sometimes they work when I give it a little push. Link here of my demonstration: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BzMkJTQ35fLHYWNjX09BdGRtV0k Thanks to anyone who can help. If you need any more information, just let me know.
So im just getting into some fun stuff making a little rover with my raspberry pi. Only thing im missing is a motor controller. Been a bit confused looking at all the different options and this is what i have ended up looking at. http://www.dfrobot.com/wiki/index.php/MD1.3_2A_Dual_Motor_Controller_SKU_DRI0002 Just want a second opinion as to weather this should work fine with the raspberry pi or not. Or if there is a better option out there that is easy / cheep to get in Australia.
"Error compiling for board Arduino Robot Motor." when trying to compile ?
I am currently working on two different Arduinos for a line following / drum playing robot. I have two codes, one for the drums (with three servos) and one for the line following part (using PID) on the two Arduinos. Everything worked fine until now, but when I tried to upload my drum code (because I added a delay) again this morning it wouldn't mount the arduino. After unplugging/plugging it again it finally mounted and appeared in the ports but displayed this error message. Now I can't seem to change anything on the two arduinos. I tried to quit/open the app (working on 1.6.9) and make a new code nothing seems to work. Looked for it on google noone seemed to have the same problem. Do you guys have anything to suggest ? This is the whole error message : /Applications/Arduino.app/Contents/Java/hardware/arduino/avcores/arduino/CDC.cpp: In function 'bool CDC_Setup(USBSetup&)': /Applications/Arduino.app/Contents/Java/hardware/arduino/avcores/arduino/CDC.cpp:104:29: error: 'MAGIC_KEY_POS' was not declared in this scope uint16_t magic_key_pos = MAGIC_KEY_POS; ^ /Applications/Arduino.app/Contents/Java/hardware/arduino/avcores/arduino/CDC.cpp:129:34: error: 'MAGIC_KEY' was not declared in this scope *(uint16_t *)magic_key_pos = MAGIC_KEY; ^ exit status 1 Error compiling for board Arduino Robot Motor. EDIT : I could upload the two codes here but I don't know what the best way to do it is and I don't think the codes are the problem. I'm using two libraries, the Servo.h and QTRSensors libraries. Also the robot should be working 2 hours from now.
Hey all, I've been watching a few sumo robot videos and built a mini-class sumobot last year. Some of the robots in the videos are extremely fast and I'd like to know where you would get motors like that? This video shows off a few pretty fast robots at the 2:20 mark I've used some pretty good geared motors from Solarbotics, but nothing with the speed and power of those bots. Any ideas?
So, usually, you'd have to buy a special stepper motor controller to use it as a robot motor for your application. Servo motors. By definition servo motors are motors integrated with a control system that enables precise positioning. So, usually, servo motors can rotate to a given angle, not continuously. Basically, the servo system could include also other types of motors, such as pneumatic ... Empfohlen 4 Inch Early Education Robot.
