Propeller Object: Enhanced Servo Controller with Acceleration (2010)

This object (http://obex.parallax.com/object/224) allows the control of up to 14 standard servos. I wrote it for my 2010 Robotic Arm. It requires 1 cog. 2 cogs required for Accelerated/Decelerated Moves. This object is based on the Servos for PE Kit.spin but incorporates many new features like: a) Three different type of movements: Immediate, Gradual and Accelerated/Decelerated… Read More Propeller Object: Enhanced Servo Controller with Acceleration (2010)

Robotic Arm, Lego Technic version (2010)

Experimental robot arm with 4 DOF (Degrees of Freedom) plus actuator (gripper). Frame made of Lego Technic parts and aluminum sheet. Robot Gripper made of cheap Turnigy TG9e (3) servos ($1.99 each at hobbyking.com), elbow and shoulder use HiTec Servos. Parallax Propeller Proto Board used to generate the PWM signals for the Servos. A custom spin… Read More Robotic Arm, Lego Technic version (2010)

My first Robot, a Maze Solver Mouse (Ratón Inteligente) (1988)

A maze solver robot. Circular base with IR sensors for line following and IR sensors for wall detection. Stepper motors with rudimentary wood wheels used for locomotion. Tethered to an Apple IIe. Recursive maze solver program written in Pascal. This was my first Robotic project which my friend Hector and I did in our last… Read More My first Robot, a Maze Solver Mouse (Ratón Inteligente) (1988)
