Professional Development Platforms

Posted on January 23, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Robotics Projects & Kits.

Professional Development Platforms   Professional development platforms are ideally suited to higher level education and research institutions. Increasingly, educational and research institutions are looking past the hardware to focus solely on robot intelligence. Professional platforms are essentially mobile computers, and have most of the components you would find in a standard PC (including video output, [...]

Nabaztag in the Nude

Posted on November 19, 2010

By Carlos Asmat & filled under Toys.

At RobotShop, we have a weird tendency to disassemble our robots (especially lately). This time, we bring you the total dismantling of the cute and innocent Nabaztag. This little rabbit is a very interesting piece of equipment since it has a powerful ARM processor, RFID reader and WiFi capabilities among other things. See the video below in order to get [...]

Printable Robots?

Posted on June 21, 2006

By William Cox & filled under Science.

Here is a lengthy article describing the possibility of printers that will print circuits and even robots. Already printers are being used to create edible art, print synthetic skin, and now the possibility of creating polymers that can act like semiconducters and be printed. With the cost of 3D printers dropping like a rock, or [...]

I have considered UHF RFID modules as well, but they cost way more and I do not need to scan RFID tags that far. Let's say there are two RFID modules, one with operating frequency of 13.56 MHz and the other one with operating frequency ...

All the products you suggest have very similar ranges and in those cases the carrying frequency does not matter too much. If you are looking for very large ranges then using higher frequencies (UHF) will be necessary.

Hi I would like to buy a RFID module but don't know whether to choose one that operates at 13.56MHz or 125kHz frequency! I don't care much about the data transfer rate, but rather I care much more about the distance that the module can ...

... depending on the quantity of sun. If one LED is overpowered, perhaps making a cluster can help. I'm not familiar with doing triangulation using RFID sensors, so I don't know how well that would work. You could also do triangulation using ultrasonic sensors: the CaddyTrek uses a similar system ...

... site to my beacon. However, I'd also prefer it to see me outside in the sun: would a 940nm LED be overpowered? Lastly, I was considering using 2 RFID chip sensors (unless only 1 may be needed?) I was looking at one "5dBi PCB UHF RFID 902-928 Mhz", but what would it's typical range be? I know ...

Hi, I'm thinking about using bluetooth as an on off switch as part of an automotive project. I realise that currently rfid appears to be the way to go but long range receivers appear to be expensive? This is the idea... I have a kit car that I have already fitted some capacitive sensors ...

... so I'll need to replace the current motors. I've tried using the 4xAA pack and it runs down very quickly (within 10 minutes of use). I have an RFID reader and IR sensor on the Rover, which may be using some of the power. How do I choose between 4.8V and 6V with the 4xAA battery pack? Thanks ...

The C-100 needs 6VDC, 4C batteries (4x1.5 = 6) should be enough but a LiPo can be too much

What is the max voltage I can use to power the c-100?

Would 4 C size batteries work ok?

What about a 7.4 litho battery?

Thank you,

... such as this one: http://www.robotshop.com/ProductInfo.aspx?pc=RB-Pol-139 WiFi is another option but is more expensive. You could also opt to use RFID and control the power of the antennae. In any case, make sure you take into consideration the antennae signal pattern since it will affect your ...

When having troubles with a USB-to-Serial converter or adapter, please follow these steps: (1) Make sure the appropriate drivers are loaded and that the module is recognized by the Operating System. In windows it will show-up as a COM port and in Linux as a device /dev/ttyUSB0 for instance. The most...
