  • Roomba Battery NiMH 3500mAH  (500/600/700 Series)
    Excellent product
    Review by David
    New and fully charged it runs my Roomba for about 1 1/2 hours on hardwood floors ( a bit less on carpet). We run the vacuum twice a week to fully discharge the battery and the recharge. Over the period of a couple of years the fully charged run time declines to about 40 minutes.

Robot Construction Kits

Posted on April 23, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under Robotics Projects & Kits, Where to Start.

Robot Construction Kits can be distinguished from normal robot kits since they use modular parts and allow you to assemble different robots using the same parts. A robot kit on the other hand only allows you to build one robot. Robot construction kits are a great investment because they tend to include everything you need [...]

Programming DAQs using FlowBotics Studio & FlowStone

Posted on March 14, 2014

By Carl Owen & filled under Electronics, Software and Apps.

  In this tutorial we are going to cover Data Acquisition boards (or DAQ’s as they are better known) and how to program them using FlowBotics Studio which uses the FlowStone graphical programming language inside. Data acquisition devices form the basis of most robotics systems obtaining signals in and out of a system from external [...]
