    Not sure this is all that useful. The board is fairly crammed, so it's hard to tell from the CAD. Maybe I'll remember to take a photo when I get home.

    They didn't have QFN footprints to match, so I constructed them in KiCad using the recommended dimensions from the data sheets. Also: I use "QFN" to...

    I have used exactly this circuit to interface between Teensy 3.2 and 3.5 and the DXL bus, yes! The RX pin has a 560 Ohm / 1 kOhm resistive divider...

    Those are RC servos, using PWM control. You can generate such pulses from any of the Arduino boards, using the Servo library. I'd recommend using a...

    That's what the magnetometer (and ideally also a GPS input) is supposed to help you solve, using some kind of Kalman conditioning. Another option is...

    Optical flow from a camera to detect movement and orientation isn't half bad! You could get a NVIDIA Jetson something-or-other and a camera for it;...

    • Synopsis: Twitch is a 3 servo hexapod (for lack of better classification). Twitch is controlled via two Wixel boards and an Arbotix Commander. The mobility of Twitch far greater than any other approach to a 3-servo walker that I have seen, and makes for a cheap bot that I can let anyone try driving.
