Adventures With Python: Part 1 - Flask App Controlling A Robot Arm

This is the result of a small mechatronics project I've working on for a few weeks to help broaden my software development skills.

Flexible Robot Arm: Part 2 - Mechanical Control

I'm currently mechanising the prototype of my scaled up flexible robot arm (commonly called a spine robot).

Flexible Robot Arm: Part 1 - Rapid Prototyping

After an extended holiday in Wellington, New Zealand, I'm getting back into making my mechanical creations. My next project is a flexible robot arm that will be able to operate in a inverted dome-shaped workspace.

Human-robot Interaction: Ultrasonic Sensor Controlled Robotic Arm

I've had a robot arm sitting around for a few years and kept telling myself I'd dust it off and use it for a cool project, but never got to it until now.

Meet Bill And Ben

I've recently put together these almost identical twin robots to test some community behaviour programs, such as follow the leader.

Obstacle Avoidance Using An Ultrasonic Array

Building on from my work in my last post, I purchased another 2 ultrasonic distance sensors and added some additional logic to my existing code to make it easier for the robot to avoid obstacles in its path.

Simple Ultrasonic Obstacle Avoidance

Inspired by an article by John Boxall for Little Bird Electronics I recently bought myself a Parallax Ping))) Ultrasonic Distance Sensor to try out.

Homemade Arduino Controlled Servo

Even though one can easily buy hobby servos online, I thought I'd have a go at making, and programming, one with some spare parts I had laying around to see how they tick.
