Re: Robotics club

I’ve been talking with a few people I know around the U.S that I met in an IEEE hardware competition in 04. (Mostly people on the east coast)They all like the idea too... we are all working on a new site...(I stopped working on the other one) we have been working on it for a month now, it should be ...

Re: DSP ADVICE

I would recommend studying DSP's.. I agree with all of the posts before me. DSP's are very powerful and can handle complex calculations. A most DSP's are programmed in Assembly for fast data conversion. I've seen DSP's used in..<p>Motor control where high precision is required.. etc. medical tools. ...

Re: line follower

I built a line following robot in college... it did other things as well. Line following can be a great experience. First off, do you want to do a digital or analog setup... if you are teaching a class I would recommend both! :) By doing so, you will be able to see the advantages of analog over digi...

Image Processing

I will be making a board soon that will do some image processing. I was looking at the ADI ADSP-BF532... Has anyone used it or has someone used some other DSP or PLD to do image processing?? Thanks

Re: webcam to connect microcontroller

I am doing something up your path right now. I just bought a Surveillance Camera.. http://www.sambuchi.net/Camera/Camera.htm I will be doing edge detection with it,, on the site above I posted a block diagram. I will be using an Analog Devices DSP.. and as haklesup mentioned. SDRAM, decoders and tra...

Re: Request Example Program in C/C++

well.. i never used the HC11 but I did use the HC12 Heres a project I did http://www.unf.edu/~sama0004/Projects/encoder/encoder_home.htm It was in Assembly not C. Assembly is a little more tricky than C. Do you still want it... I'm sure you can still find a lot of HC11 codes on the net to start you ...

Re: PWM controllers

hummm.. why dont you get your self a little MSP430 (by choice) that has a ADC built into it. On the MSP430 you will also have a port that you can output a PWM... now that PWM will only be 3.3V with little current.. that doesn't matter. You can get yourself some MOSFETS to drive the motor.. I have so...

Re: Question on software

If you are good with programming in C. I would recommend using the MSP430 from Texas Instruments for the following reasons.. Samples are free and they provide over a 1000 sample codes for their chips.<p>I made a robot for my college last year and I used the MSP430 449<p> www.sambuchi.net click > Pro...

Re: Robot parts

I made a robot for my college last year. It did well.. and to answer your question.. I would say to check out your local hobbie stores for the servos.. Digikey is great for parts. My site shows my robot and steps I used.<p> www.sambuchi.net click > Projects > Robot-IEEE<p>Its great for learning and ...
