STM32F0 – Software capacitive touch

Capacitive touch is “rad”. By utilizing one of the simplest physical characteristics of an object – charge storage, one is able to measure the presence of a grounded object including touch and pressure. There are a couple of capacitive touch libraries that I’ve seen around but many require dedicated hardware, for example the TSC peripheral […]

Swarmbots – Initial build and testing

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 […]

STM32F0 Discovery + AM2302/DHT22

Well tonight has been productive! I’ve managed to get the DS1307 working with my STM32F0 and now the AM2302! I thought that I’d actually done a previous post on interfacing the DHT11 humidity and temperature sensor but it turns out I hadn’t! The method of operation and data transfer is pretty much the same so […]

Phobass V!

Finally, after a fair few months, big things are happening in the Phobass department! I’ve had a bit of a break from the development as the smart watch had taken my interest but things have recently swapped. I’ve completely redesigned the neck, made a new, sleeker menu PCB, along with modifying the motherboard to include […]
