Cameras! This is a project I’ve wanted to do for ages – I’ve had the module since early 2015. Using an STM32F0 (my shiny new one!), an ILI9163 160×128 LCD and an OV7670 FIFO camera module, I was able to achieve 20fps video on this tiny LCD with only a few tips and tricks! Video […]
So unfortunately, I’m still waiting on my batteries to arrive meaning I have to make do with some extra Li-Pos I happen to have lying around (…as you do). I gave a demonstration to one of my lecturers – soon to be my project supervisor over the summer, and he showed an interest in a minimal […]
Nothing like a bit of late night procrastination!
Today, my Swarmbot PCBs arrived! I’ve put one of the robots together to get a feel for where everything would go and what it would look like so its not too pretty but it seems to be functional and I’ve got the robot working autonomously in obstacle avoidance mode using the front IR sensor. Build […]
Robots! Who doesn’t like robots… I’ve never to day done any projects in robots now while I find them cool, the reasoning for which is they’re generally pretty expensive. Therefore, I’ve decided to try and design the smallest most functional micro robot that I can. One of my main aims was to be able to […]
Servos are great. They generally work really well and contain all the control and drive circuitry for reasonably precise error free position keeping. Servos are interfaced through PPM with the standard generally being deemed as a pulse between 1ms – 2ms and a period of 20ms. I’ve written code before for the STM32F0 discovery boards to allow servos to […]
