Omnibot 2K Wheels

Hey Guys, I'm just starting off a new project after I got an Omnibot 2k off ebay. I'll be creating a project page for it soon, but I thought I'd share a little bit of it now. When I dismantled the bot, and gave it a clean, I noticed that the wheels were pretty degraded. I know josh can create new ones, but being new to this, I really wanted to...

How To Use H-Bridge With Gradual Turns?

Hey Guys, I've seen the tutorial video and the sample source code for controlling motors via a H-bridge, but all these have the motors being in 4 fixed states (5 if you count stopped) Fwd, Back, Left and Right. What I want to be able to do though is have a robot turn in a more gradual manor. If you think of a joystick, pushing forward should get...

My Ez-Board Just Went Pop :(

Man, I just though I'd have a play with my ez-b having not played with it for a while, but when I connected the battery, nothing happened. Removed the power and re attached it a few times when it decided to just go pop :( Anyone any idea what happened? And whether its repairable? Really can't afford another one at the moment :( Matt
question

Omnibot 2000 Fingers

Hey Guys, You may have seen my omnibot tires that I make, but here is something else I'm working on :) I need to remake the mould as I got way too many air bubbles in (might have a go at making a vacuum chamber) but I know what I need to change to get perfect reproductions. Coming to an eBay near you soon :)

[For Sale] Configurable Robot Gripper Finger Kit For Use With Lynxmotion Bracket

For anyone who has not been following along on my OmniMC project, I made some custom gripper fingers that are really quite flexible for use with the standard Lynxmotion brackets.

Camera Mods

Hey guys, ive seen a few posts where people have said they have moded the ez camera to run off the ez board / main power supply, and removed the need for a power switch etc, but cant find any details on how to perform them. Anyone got any details on how to do these? Or even better a video? Cheers Matt
question

For Sale Section?

Hey, I was just wondering if it would be a good idea to have a for sale / wanted section on the forum? I'm after a few bits for my robots and I have a few things to sell aswell. I've been recommended people to speak to about parts when they come up during a conversation in a thread, but it could be cool to have a place to specifically ask for...
question

Hi guys, Has anyone used the mg995 servos for heavy duty work? (moving omnibot 200 arms/head) Would you recommend them? I've read that they tend to overshoot when positioning. If so, is it highly noticable? Also, anyone know what make the ones are forsale in the ez store? Many thanks Matt
question

General Suggestion For The Forum

Hi DJ, Just thought I'd make a suggestion. I'm not sure what forum software you use, but it would be cool if when it emails you a link to a reply to one of your forum posts, could it link you to that comment? Right now it seems to just send you to the first page, but would be handy if it could send you straight to the response. Many thanks and keep...
question

question

Console Application Example

Hey, I was wondering if anyone had an example of using the EZ SDK via a console application? All the samples are full on WinForm apps, where as I would just like to create a simple console app. The problem being, it seems all connections in the WinForms apps are using the EZB_Connect user control, which doesn't work inside a console app. Has...
question

Suggest A H-Bridge?

Hey Guys, First time poster, I was wondering if I could get some advice from the veterans. After seeing DJ's wall-e robot, I've been working on making my own for a while. Originally I was looking to do it using a netduino as I'm a .NET developer but kept hitting some bricks walls I couldn't get passed. So now I'm looking to move it over to using...
