  • 2 Axis Joystick GIM-01
    Perfect
    Review by VRSS
    works perfect, great, highly recommend.

  • HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Range Finder
    Performance is good
    Review by Mke
    I am a little disappointed in the spec's. They give mounting hole dimensions/placement, but not cone dimensions/placement, so I guessed for the laser cut part, and of course missed. I will have to recut.
    But otherwise performance is as expected, nothing great, nothing bad.

    Excellent in mechatronics engineering
    Review by Jhonny
    This is a joystick precision of excellent quality and very adjustable to programming in mechatronics engineering with projects that can sse highly sensitive because they can be removed only by removing the mechanical self-centering springs and trucanle while

  • 6 DOF Gyro, Accelerometer IMU - MPU6050
    Great product
    Review by Vincent
    The MPU 6050 works great.
    It's easy to get it working and retreive some raw data of it. There's a lot of documentation for it on the internet. I use it with my beaglebone black in C++. The data are precise enough for my quadcopter.

Ecovacs Deebot D77 Unboxing

Posted on May 30, 2014

By Julie Gendron & filled under Consumer Robotics, Domestic, Vacuum.

The Deebot D77 system will change everything you thought you knew about robotic vacuums. It is the first 3-in-1 robot in it’s class to empty itself automatically when it returns to it’s docking station. You therefore no longer need to empty the dust bin after every few cleaning cycles. The canister is much larger and [...]

New Hokuyo Laser Range Finders for Robotics

Posted on May 06, 2014

By Jeffrey Arcand & filled under Industrial, Industry, Research.

The Hokuyo scanning sensors are great 2D obstacle scanners. They can be used in fixed locations to detect if an object enters its scan area, and can be used on mobile platforms that need to do obstacle detection and avoidance as they move. There are two categories of sensors: outdoor sensors that have ranges up [...]

That's really disappointing. I doubt that the 2-sided tape could support the pan/tilt mount. I thought the tape was to attach the battery pack anyway.

Oh. There should be a piece of double-sided 3M tape included with the kit. Not the best solution but works well. You can even get away with using hot glue. The ideal solution would be the expansion plate which has a slot for this servo, but it was not included because it increased the price quite a ...
