Wall-E gets some new legs
Still gotta get a couple more metal geared servos to replace the knees. Well, it stands on its own
Three finally nearing a usable state. It drives as I wanted and even successfully avoids most obstacles with his guitar string whiskers. I also finally put up a wiki page for him. almost done
Three getting some coding done. Finally. This also shows the discrepancy of the power supply’s meter vs the real world. gettin’ coded
Yup, there’s robot goings-on. Yrtl-03 getting some encoders and motors wired up. gettin’ wired
These have been done and sitting for a couple weeks. Now I’m finally getting around to playing again. Wheel encoder board Two QRD1114 and a 74LS14 to square up the signal. Motor controller Built on a leftover protoboard from Gadget Gangster with an ATMega328 at 16MHz (yes, running as an Arduino) and a Pololu TB6612FNG motor driver. The two wheel encoders go to the interrupt pins. The little surface mount chip still needs its connections soldered up, it’ll be the 3....
Breadboarded wheel encoder. ATMega328 on the left, 74LS14 in the middle, QRD1114 on the right. QRD1114 on a radio shack proto board. So far it seems to work as expected. Guess it’s time to build the second one.
