Thank you for your post I wasn't very clear on my first post but my robot has ir sensors and I plan to add bumper and wheel speed sensors to it. As for programing the procesor to count between pulses I'm still not that good in PBasic. So would it be posible to give me some starter code in how to mak...

How do you make R/c robotic Interface?

Hi i have a robot and a r/c controller and i want to intergrate them so i can use the r/c controller to controll it but have the procesor still working to stop the robot, if its going to fall down the stairs for instance Is there a way to do this I think if i can get the processor to accept the serv...

directly to the shaft in the pics you can kinda see if you look hard that there already conected im using ir sensors and im thinking of using bumper sensors for what they miss the robots great it can already turn corners and navigate around big obstacles it navigated succefully between my cocktale t...

i was thinking and i need help with what wheels to use on this robot i was thinking of a bikes training wheel but that might not work because i think i got rid of all of them years ago but im afraid the the motor would grind the wheel causing it to slip since my motor has a screw like end and its pr...

thank you i was to busy before to realy start on the robot now i have the time so it should be coming along as for the chip on the motors ive done some more searching and i think its a PWM converter transister (thats the best i can make from what it does) the name is RFP50N06 if you want the specs i...

i think im just going to power the controller and motors sepperately
motors by two 18v batteries and a 9v bat for the controller

i was more worried on how ill power up the sensors but if im right all of them should be powered by the controller

sorry for all the confussion

im having a problem with building the power supply im not sure how to choose which resistor to use for instance to change the voltage from 18v to 5v, 9v, 18v(might need to lower the amps for the motors bc imusing the bateries in conjunction), and other i know the formula V=RI but im not sure how to ...
