Modern industrial automation is about integrating a lot of different pieces of equipment doing different things. In data-driven manufacturing, having the tools to analyze and manage the stream of real-time process data is critical.
In this episode of Make: Live we build Eddie, a self-balancing robot powered by the Intel Edison Single Board Computer. Eddie Self Balancing Robot project link : https://makezine.com/projects/self-balancing-eddie-robot/
MIT CSAIL has developed a new design system to make the building of simple robots more accessible to those without design expertise. Users put together a design using templates, which is 3D printed as flat two-dimensional faces connected by joints, before being folded to assemble the final 3D shape.
Cassie is an advanced legged mobility robot. Created by Oregon State University spin-off, Agility Robotics, Engineering team has big plans for this robot to assist rescuers in disaster relief and go the extra mile when delivering packages right to our doors, potentially helping to revolutionize the retail market.
Learning how to control motors and drive your robot is the first step in creating your combat bot. We look at how to read a pulse width signal from an RC receiver using an Arduino and convert that into a PWM signal for driving motors.
LIDAR, which is either a mashup of laser and radar or an acronym for light detection and ranging, is the method of shooting a laser at an object and measuring the time it takes for that reflection to return to a receiver. Here, we look at how LIDAR works & how it can be applied to robots to detect objects.
