Anthrophex – Update 3/5/17

(Its now 4/5/17 shhhh) Frame So last night I was in the hackspace testing out my new hinges and moved actuator. Sadly, the hinges once again were too weak to fully support my weight (ugh) so it’s made me rethink the design of each leg. I am however going to keep the hinges for now […]

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 […]

SwarmBots – The intro

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 […]

STM32F0 Software UART

Well it certainly has been a long time since I last posted! This however is something I’ve been wanting to try and implement for a long time, I just haven’t got round to it as of yet. So what is it you ask? How about: The ability to use UART on any pin with edge […]
