haha 599$ is cheap for you? never thought of that.
2  Using Arduino / Motors, Mechanics, and Power / Re: Cheapest source for rubber tracked robot on: November 05, 2012, 08:28:00 am
I tried small bicycle's tires and they were too hard for fitting. Is there anything that can be done?

This thing- http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-custom-and-strong-tank-tracks-for-very/
is good but takes hell lot of time which I can't waste.
 The only option remains is using cycle's tire after trimming them. I dont know why they have put simple rubber robot tracks at so high rates of about 1000$ for two :/

Have you built a treaded robot before? Maybe I can take it's idea.

No, I am learning c# as I said. But there are libraries available, like this one-

How difficult do you think my idea is? To me it looks like a dream :/
Have you done a project like this before?
5  Using Arduino / Interfacing w/ Software on the Computer / Re: Any arduino + C# tutorial? on: November 04, 2012, 10:57:01 am
Okay.
Do you have any tutorial for 6DOF IMU Sparkfun and interfacing it? Or understanding the IMU's output?(in what unit it gives all the output,etc)
6  Using Arduino / Interfacing w/ Software on the Computer / Re: Any arduino + C# tutorial? on: November 04, 2012, 09:04:21 am
Okay,

This 'map' will be like a google earth API in my C# program. the position will be decided by the data that the arduino will send to the computer.
Please help me understand this.
Also, it will be like Live position stats...do you get my idea?

I am not sure then about the camera. Can I use arduino to send the camera data to the pc? like in future as you said if I make a wireless robot; can xbee transmit camera signals?

Please first help me with IMU thing. What should I start with? Actually I bought some stuff but dont know how to use it. IMU is one of them.

Hello,
I am making a rc semi autonomous tank. This tank/robot will be designed and built so that it will show me live stats of the robot.
What this robot will have to do is-
1) Can be controlled over wifi.
2)Will have a imu, which will create a 3d picture and show what the current orientation/position is of the tank/robot.(I have a 6DOF)

My idea is that; a picture of car/tank will turn/rotate according to the real/actual position of the tank/robot. Though I am not sure how this will be done(I NEED HELP)
3) It will have a webcam camera which will show live picture.
4)Future upgrade- will attach a toy gun which will be controlled through servo and will shoot targets that I will tell it to.
                         will have a GPS system and a virtual map will be created according to the area.(NOTSURE HOW THIS CAN BE DONE).


All I need help now is with the IMU idea {check the 2nd point}.
I am learning c# and will work with it only.

I will also appreciate new ideas.  smiley-kiss

Rahul

dx? I am from India.

Hi,
I am building a treaded robot not really heavy duty but will be good enough. I wanted to make it as cheap as possible, I have most of the stuff including motors and batteries, controller.
But the problem is the drive system.
I want to buy use the cheapest ever rubber track source to make my treaded robot. Will cycle tires work? But I want small.
My robot wont exceed 3/4meter length and 3/5 meter bredth.
Please help me complete this project.
I will use arduino to control my motors and software(sensors).
It will be an semi autonomous robot.


I wish to build something like this.

Please help me.

Thanks in advance,
Rahul

Okay Thanks smiley
Then I think I shall choose java smiley
11  Using Arduino / Interfacing w/ Software on the Computer / Re: Confused with what programming language to learn on: October 29, 2012, 05:05:10 am
Really nice reply.
So, you mean I should understand the basics of programming which will help me learn any language in future, right?
Then I'll go with java. smiley

Hello,

Which programming language is easy and good for a student like me? C and C++ seems to be very boring to me while learning. I started watching Java tutorials which are better than C and C++.
I like GUI based languages which are fun to write.
Should I continue with java?

I want to interface and communicate 'the language' with the arduino software to get more freedom. like making a accelerometer stats program with a software,etc.

Bdw I started learning from thenewBoston channel at youtube.

Thanks in advance,
Rahul

Haha. yup you right.

Nothing like this gonna happen chill. But you need to take certain precautions of power distribution. I suggest a 3000Mah+ 3S battery which will power the arduino after converting to low voltage.

15  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: project ideas and help for a innovative science project on: October 28, 2012, 06:33:16 am
You are absolutely right. I will think about that today and let you guys know.

Thanks smiley
