Arduino is a 15-year-old brand and I believe that nowadays everyone with even a minor interest in technology may be owning one of these microcontroller boards. But how many of you are actually using it or have ever made a useful project with it? Sometimes the Arduino is abandoned on […]

People have been missing the Arduino.org for quite some time. These were among the best Arduino compatible boards available on the market and they were a beloved best-seller at RobotShop. Fortunately, the wait is over now. CC Logistics, the new name of the company, just released a new lineup of products called What’s Next?. Behind the colorful names and packaging hide some excellent products which are aiming at the future.
This tutorial explains in an easy and intuitive way to help you understand the theory, design and implementation to make your own generator and sensor for a perimeter wire. The files (Schematics, Eagle Files, Gerbers, 3D Files and Arduino Sample Code) are also available for download. This way, you can add the wire perimeter detection feature to your favorite robot and keep it within an operating “zone”. How cool is that!
itbrainpower.net l-LTE v1.07 4G/LTE CAT 1 shield and l-LTE v 1.07 4G/LTE CAT 4 shield, the smallest 4G/LTE shields available today, have one high-performance GNSS [GPS+GLONASS] engine embedded. By default, the GNSS antenna circuitry is configured for passive antennas [does not have enabled the GNSS antenna power supply circuitry]. Even […]
More and more people are starting to use what’s called an “ESC” (Electronic Speed Controller) in robotic applications or DIY projects. These are low cost, readily available motor controllers that can drive brushed or brusless DC motors and most of the time are found in Radio Control (RC) applications. Given this market, they use standard RC PWM signals as input but with some “twists” to avoid any issues of safety.
The main purpose of this “how-to” article it is to guide you on how to make a convenient and elegant modular GSM or 3G hardware platform using an Arduino Pro Mini (and related) board, a j-328GSM3GLader Arduino Pro Mini adapter board and c-uGSM / d-u3G / h-nanoGSM modem shields. The purpose of a programmable GSM interface is to be able to communicate with electronics / hardware directly via the cellular network (SIM card required), without the need for a cell phone. You may use such a platform as a mobile IoT interface (access sensor data remotely, or control actuators) or as an SMS / GPRS / DTMF automation platform.
Everyone has been eager to know when the LIDAR-Lite would return to market, so we are very happy to announce it is now available for pre-order: LIDAR-Lite v3. The second thing everyone was insistent on asking was: “Will this work with my previous setup/project/custom mounting/etc.?”. In this post, we will cover in more details the similarities and differences of the new LIDAR-Lite.
