New Product From Intel

Ran across a new product from Intel. it looks small enough and low power enough to be useful in a robot. Intel computer on a stick. Can't verify for sure it can run ez-builder but reads like it should. Price appears decent too. http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Intel/BOXSTCK1A32WFCR/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMuCJ3asIKVASnagCm4Y5pBFHxaa2kD0ba9jGCy1Btud4g%3d%3d...

Beyond Jd

I ran across a 3D Printable robot on Thingiverse that may be the next step beyond JD. Poppy The Robot http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:689134 It looks really interesting. The main website for Poppy is https://www.poppy-project.org/ Unfortunately it uses Dynamixel Servos (which is not uncommon for academic projects) and they are really expensive....

Kickstarter Robot Eyes Or Guage

Here is an interesting kickstarter project in the works with sparkfun. Could make great robot eyes or small guage for a robot. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1516846343/microview-chip-sized-arduino-with-built-in-oled-di Is based on arduino and would require programming but may look really neat as a battery guage or a set of robot eyes. Has...

String Parsing

I am trying to send charatcer strings to a serial LCD and have been having difficulties. One of the things I ran into was that space characters were not being sent to it properly. So I started playing around and ran across an interesting bug. I think it is related to some of the problems I have been having. Part of my problem was sending too much...

Mobile Ez-Builder And Ez-B V3 Wifi

A while back with much help from the Community Forum I got my EZ-B v3 working over Wifi with the Wifi board mentioned in the Hardware Wifi Tutorial. From what I understand so far the Android version of EZ-Builder can talk to the EZ-B v3 with bluetooth. Would it also work over Wifi? Also could the future Apple EZ-Builder work over Wifi to the EZ-B...

question

Ic2 Gps For Robot

I have been thinking about adding on board navigation to my robot. I think a compass is the first step and there is a good tutorial and suggest part for that, but the other part of the equation is a GPS reciever and connecting one to the EZ-B seems to be an area of concern. I have run across some new parts parts that seem to make it possible to...

Best 3D Printer For Robot Design And Build

I see DJ new ez robot lab has at least two different 3d printers: one MakerBot Replicator 2 and one 3D Systems CubeX Trio. Any comment on which 3d printer is best for making robot parts? What software is best for 3d robot part design on a budget of course? This is a hobby after all. Any comments on materials abs or pla etc.?
question

Ez Builder Project Autosave

I have been working on debugging scripts for my robot lately and occassionally end up hanging up EZ builder. I may just be too impatient not waiting for it to come back, but I have needed to occasionally kill it with the task manager. Unfortunately this does not give me and opportunity to save my work. Any chance of there being an autosave feature...

Ez-Builder Digital Port Enhancement

As I was adding some new Bump sensors to my robot I got to thinking about a nice enhancement to the read digital port and set digital port windows. It would be nice to have mulitple digital ports in a single window on the EZ-Builder Desktop. This could eliminate lots of small windows on the desktop and allow the user to group digital ports with...
question

Battery Voltage Monitor

I just added a voltage divider to my rover5 robot to monitor battery voltage. It is input to the EZ-b on an analog pin. The ADC gauge works neat as a fuel gauge. Wish it could be set to change color as the voltage goes below certain selectible points. The end goal is to get the the robot to say "Battery low" when the ADC pin becomes less than a...
question

Ping Radar Running A Script Instead Of Turning Robot?

Would it be resonable to have EZ-Builder Execute a Stop command to the movement panel and then run a script if something has tripped the distance trigger? A script could have the robot make a tone with speaker tone or trigger and MP3 with the MP3 Trigger and then it could be programmed to execute a turn or use the ping sensor and ping sensor servo...

Serial Gps For Ez-B

Has anyone looked at something like the Locosys LS20031 as a serial device attached to the EZ-B? Requires 3.3V. Output is to a TTL-level serial port. IT outputs the data in more than 6 different National Marine Electronics Association (NMEA) GPS sentences (user selectable) at a rate of up to 10 Hz.
