Month of Robots

16 posts
This is a follow-up post to this one from Project 14. The goal was to analyze the battery life of my Dirty Smart Button diaper logger. I meant to post this before the end of the month but left this sitting partially done in my "Drafts" until it was too late. I still wanted to post the follow up, so here it is!   Well it looks like I got 500 button presses exactly in the first round of tests. The MeArm was very useful in doing the lion's share of the work by laboriously pressing buttons tim ...

Back to The Project14 homepage Project14 Home Monthly Themes Monthly Theme Poll   After spending the equivalent of several days scratching my head, looking at datasheets, unsoldering parts, replacing parts, re-soldering parts and just generally despairing, I have finally worked out what was wrong and the dual mo ...
For my unofficial entry into the Picasso Design Challenge I have made some progress and I now have three working wheel units. I weighed the few remaining centimetres of plastic filament that I had left for my 3D printer and discovered that I had just enough to print out the supports for one more of the step motor units, so I printed them out. There is now only 10 or 20 centimetres of filament left so not enough for the fourth wheel unit. However, I have ordered some more, which has to come from ...
The base of the SuperRobot has been mostly completed but I thought it would be better if each of the two driving DC motors had two wheels on rather than just the one as at present. This would then eliminate the 'bending' of the motors that happens at present as the wheel is offset from the line of support of the motor. By adding two wheels the pressure is evenly distributed, plus there is a greater surface area giving a better grip and less pressure on each tyre.   After looking on the int ...
