  • Raspberry Pi Model B Computer Board
    you can't have too many Raspberry Pis
    Review by Kenneth
    This Raspberry Pi is my fourth. This one replaces an older unit as a data and web server. One is permanently used as a network camera with the PiCam module, one is used as over VNC as a portable serial interface, and one has a TFT touch screen that I use for testing and general play.

  • RoBoard NCBox-189 CNC Machine Controller
    Exellent
    Review by Marina
    Very useful for students and of course teachers. Students can learn CNC programming and controlling on didactic machine with appropriate price. My recommendation is to give advice and link to downloadable CNC program.

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, [...]

The RoBoard Gains an LCD, Robots Show Their True Colours

Posted on August 02, 2010

By Carlos Asmat & filled under Electronics, RobotShop.

The RoBoard has been controlling robots for some time now. It is a single board computer featuring a Vortex86DX, a 32bit x86 CPU running at 1 GHz with 256MB DRAM, lots of PWM IO for controlling servos, and more. A recurring feature that was always asked was to have a small native display for the RoBoard in order to have [...]

PP2 – PICmicro Processor Unit version 2

Posted on May 29, 2005

By William Cox & filled under Electronics.

Zac Soden details his cheap and simple microcontroller, the Pic Processing Unit or PPU.. A couple of years ago I posted an article on the PPU (see page 2) – a complete micro-sized PIC16F84 processor board for robot applications. Since then I have recieved heaps of feedback on the PPU but some recent requests left [...]

Anybody had much experience with using single board computers (SBCs) in robotics? Dale mentioned he was working with a BeagleBoard which looks pretty cool, and the Roboard looks good too (if a bit pricier) specifically for robotics. Anything else worth looking at?
