The Motors

Posted by weiwei2 Dec 24, 2018
I have just got a UPS update that my kit will reach on 26 Dec 18, right after Christmas. So i still can enjoy the Christmas holiday now. Anyway, the only update i have is i have decided to go for somewhat fail safe chain track chasis. It does comes with 2x of gear motor (DC 6V-12V with 320mA no load current, 446rpm, 4.5A stall current). Well, these pair of motor should work on my playground. If they don't i have another pair of 6W Maxon DC geared motor which i salvage from an old factory automat ...
The past week has been about doing enough detailed design to get long lead time components on order. The parts kit from STMicroelectronics and TE Connectivity came in and I have been looking through the datasheets. Some parts I ordered have also come in and I've been designing a 3D printed nozzle to test the feasibility of the printing concept, so I can blog about the tangible parts. Here is a video which explains what arrived plus some initial thoughts on the project:   Here is the p ...
We are back with a second blog post and this one is pretty interesting. Since our UAV Inspection system uses Quadcopter(s) to collect data, we decided on making a custom one for ourselves to meet our specific requirements.   Quadcopters are infamous for having very low flight time, mainly because of the weight of the bunch of sensors, the battery and of course the frame. To increase the flight time we had to reduce the weight, but as we really can’t do anything about the motor weight ...
Hello everyone! Without wasting much time for the kit to arrive. Let me first give an introduction to what I do. I am member of Vjti Racing Team, Mumbai which is consist of 32 engineering enthusiast. My task is handling the entire electronic aspect of the car. Here is a photo of our car manufactured previous year - So the stuffs which I decided to incorporate in this vehicle are: Speedometer: It will work on the basis of hall effect. Hall effect sensor detects the magnet attached to the flyw ...
Title: Semi Automatic Fire Fighting Robot By: sunnyiut   Design Challenge: Sixth Sense Design Challenge Blog number: 01   "Fire Fire Fire"!!! A serious issue. However, my project is not so serious to find a bullet-proof solution. Rather then it's just a prototype robot to sense and fight against fire in smaller scale. And yep... it is going to be an 'ultimate upgrade' to a previous robotics project, adding some sort of 'sixth sense' - that is like.... sensing FIRE, ambient envi ...
GraffitiBot (Liquid Canvas Drawing (LCD) Robot) I wrote a proposal for this challenge back before the scope was relaxed to allow pre-existing RC robot platforms, so my design is still based on a fully autonomous robot built from scratch. This makes it a pretty ambitious project involving mechanical design, electronics design, software design and hydraulic design. I am doing this project because I like stretching myself to see what I can accomplish and the multi-disciplinary requirements of ro ...

The Playground

Posted by weiwei2 Dec 15, 2018
Here is the venue of my weeding machine it is a bit undulating, with different types of weeds and other stuff i don't want to cut (carpet grass, flower, other edible plant). Hence the idea is to 'sixth sense' those objects Here let's take a look at all the objects i obviously cannot cut my children pet guinea pig, and the flowering plants that it like to devour.                     pumpkin ...
We are excited to be a part of this challenge, thank you element14 community to help us be a part of this. So as to introduce us and our plans, we wanted to share our proposal; as in what we plan to do. We are a team of students, from National Institute of Technology Warangal India, with the interest in drone technology; we aim to learn and contribute in this field. Below is our proposal:   Problem   Industrial inspection is a key aspect of any factory or production plant. In its curr ...
