I’m currently participating in the University of Utah Mars Rover competition. I made a small prototype of what an arm or stabilization system could look like on the robot.
Material: three 9G micro servo, one 9 DOF IMU, an Arduino Uno with a Sensor Shield V5.0 mounted on top
Here’s a stabilizer mode instead of an arm mimicking mode, useful to keep certain objects stable while they are mounted on a moving vehicle encountering bumps and obstacles.
Here is my current Robot Dog project, the goal is to make it autonomous and do various tasks.
It’s based on an Arduino, I plan on combining a beagle bone to it later.
For now it can only track objects and it has basic movements capabilities.
Tonight I recorded some cellphones display with my microscope to look at the differences between the pentile Matrix of the Galaxy S III and the Note II non-pentile display.
Here’s the video cycling through red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, yellow and white:
Here is a video and some pictures of the event:
