Hardware Question

New Here conceptualizing my bot project will post as more info comes in, only info is that will be shelled with makerbot replicator2 powered 4 cim dc motors.


for higher process will add onboard mobo to bot... will connect mobo to ez-b with bluetooth... mobo has wifi can this wifi be used to remote control via ARC Robot Control Software or do i need to use a UART WiFi Network Server/Client Module Kits to interface with robot via ARC Robot Control Software?

Thanks in advance DJ nice setup here I like what your doing here, will here more from me going to do some pretty advanced stuff.

Thanks will give pics/video after base is setup/assembled and moving, and give progress thru build.. i will power my 68amp peak cim dc motors (4) via talon speed controllers and input them via Input PWM signal to ezboard. Will post pics once this is completed and running:) still need this question answered to know if i need a UART WiFi or not?

You can remotely control the ARC running on the "on board" mobo via wifi without any additional hardware.

You can connect to an instance of ARC on a different PC using ARC, DJ has a video on it somewhere, I'll see if I can find it.

Awesome rich thanks so much ....so many great tutorials must have missed the one i needed...

Perfect, now i can pick the mobo off the shelf here i wanna use, probably a zotac ion fanless with brick power adapter and get started creating the the enclosure for it and ezboard....

Anyone have dimensions of the ez-b dont have mine yet... need it for shell/enclosure to make on makerbot... or better yet anyone have a stl they have made for the ez-b yet? bet the aurdino is close fit

thanks Again

The EZ-B dimensions are in the manual (page 17).

Remember, if you want speech recognition to work you need to be using Windows 7, so as long as that mobo will run it OK it'll be fine (Windows 7 works out as the most energy efficient OS in my recent tests too)
