Increase torque or reduce noise in DC brushed motors
By default, most Arduino pwm outputs are set to about 490Hz or 980Hz. These frequencies work quite well with small dc brushed motors but can cause unwanted noise or … Read more

Robot Class

I am in the process of submitting a course proposal for an adult evening education program that would introduce people to robotics. One of the entries that I must fill in deals with expected material costs. I would appreciate feedback on what would be appropiate expenses and whether the school should include the costs as part of the registration or if the student should buy the components as needed. I am in favor of having an option not to build.

On a similar note, would it be better to first offer a course in "C" programming geared to a possible robotics controller board?

Extra Hardware Needed for Larger Hexapod

About a month ago I purchased hexapod kit off ebay.

Aluminium-Hexapod-Spider-Six-3DOF-Legs-Robot-Frame-Kit-for-Arduino

Yesterday as a break from program my Mini Hexapod, I started putting together this larger one.

I thought it was time to tell a little about the application I'm working on these days. Though very far from finished, it's starting to look like something bit by … Read more
