Mini Robotic Shield

 

Make your first robot is a fun thing. Forces you to use creativity to solve those small problems. But not everyone has the space, tools (simple as it may be) available or sufficient knowledge to make your first robot from scratch, it makes some people give up in the early days ... fair will then prevent them to have fun as we make our robots? NO.

I built TrackBot a test platform for various technologies. It's easy to add sensors and servos. I'm using it to prototype the desgin of B4, a BeagleBoard based … Read more

Arduino Nano on PCB

As I wrote in Chopstick Junior 1.0 (there you can see it in the robot) here comes the part with the Arduino Nano on a PCB.

Why I did this?

Well, it's just a try to use the Arduino Nano for other robots too. This gives me the chance to remove the MC and put it in another robot or just upgrade this one with a new Nano. But the most important is that I can connect all the servos I need directly to the board without any solering or using male-to-female cables.

Arduino Nano arrived!

I finally got my Arduino Nano!  It's so tiny and has a blue LED underneath for power indication.

I have not had much of a chance to play with it, but it sure looks cool.   Can't wait to put this to use in a bot.  Thinking I may try an Olympic Challenge bot!
