So you’re looking to get into drones and UAVs? This tutorial series is designed to help you understand the emerging field of UAVs and guide you through the process of building your own UAV using off-the shelf parts. The terminology and definitions used here are intended to give you, the reader an understanding of each term rather than a dictionary definition. Although many words may have multiple meanings, the definition is used in the context of UAVs / Drones.
This post explains the different steps necessary to use a MultiWii compatible board for two axis servo-based stabilization. Many people try to make projects that require stabilization and don’t really want to have to worry about programming; fortunately MultiWii comes to the rescue and helps you get this done fast and even at a low […]
The AUVSI Foundation is well known for running many international student robotics competitions. The RoboSub competition is one of the largest outdoor international competitions that has been running annually since 1998. In this competition, university students must build a fully autonomous robotic vehicle to complete an obstacle course underwater. In 2008, the AUVSI Foundation started […]
Phidgets supports a variety of languages, but before you start programming, you’ll need to get the library for the language you like working in, which can be found on the language pages on Phidgets.com. While you’re there, you’ll also find the code examples and an in-depth API. The C library comes with the drivers you installed in Phidgets Lesson […]
Phidgets are easy to use sensors and controllers for programmers. After just a bit of coding, you’ll have your computer connected to the real world via an assortment of sensors as well as motors, relays, remote control, RFID, LEDs and more! But first, you’ll need to get the drivers installed, and luckily, it will take less […]
RobotShop and DSP Robotics just launched some new apps to get Phidgets quickly working on your computer. These apps are made with FlowBotics Studio, the new robotics software development platform. The new apps make it really easy to use Phidgets (you don’t even need to install the Phidgets drivers). Just download the Phidget app, and it’ll run, just […]
FlowBotics Studio is a powerful graphical programming software which helps you easily create programs which interface with external hardware. One important feature of FlowBotics Studio is that you can also create stand-alone executable (.exe) programs which can be installed and used by others who do not own FlowBotics Studio. RobotShop, along with DSP Robotics, have […]
