    Re: SRV1 (Generation II) for SALE

    Is the only difference between this and the "newest version" that the newer one has the more fancy acrylic piece in the front to mount the lasers and camera?

    I egarly await the release of your second gen product.

    Do you anticipate a change in price for the next version?

    I have not seen the rp5 before, but yes I agree.

    Looks like a decent little rover. Not many details though.

    I'd like to know what he is using for the micro controller, and am curious how he can offer it at...
  5. Question(s) Re: Hello all - Some questions from a future rover builder (BrainStem and H-bridge related)

    ???

    My guess would be that he used a "Watt-Meter" type device at the outlet. I can understand that that might distort the readings somewhat based on power source used, but would it not bias the...

    so the Asus Eee Box is an intel atom based desktop system.

    This review clocks it in at 19watt power draw on full load.

    Interesting Re: WATCHMEN Trailer - AMAZING!

    looks interesting, can't tell much of anything about the movie from the trailer which is good IMHO - too many spoilers in trailers these days.

    Re: Wall-e; What Did You Think Of It?

    Am I the only one who was not completely thrilled with it?

    I mean it was decent, and I don't regret paying the outrageous $9.50 per ticket for my fiancee and I to go see it, but I thought that...
  9. Question(s) Re: Hello all - Some questions from a future rover builder (BrainStem and H-bridge related)

    by wide input do you mean something like THIS? Accepts 6-24V input.
  10. Question(s) Re: Hello all - Some questions from a future rover builder (BrainStem and H-bridge related)

    Idunno, perhaps the power limitations of the mini-itx and the LiPO combination are acceptable?

    The 53W is the peak power usage for the board, and I would guess that it would be running at less...
  11. Question(s) Re: Hello all - Some questions from a future rover builder (BrainStem and H-bridge related)

    Hey - Your not missing anything. Basically I am wondering if the brainstem will be a good learning platform, that I can upgrade from later on to something with networking and video capability.

  12. Question(s) Re: Hello all - Some questions from a future rover builder (BrainStem and H-bridge related)

    Why thank you for your electronics wizardry! I can't go back in my education far enough to get those conversions from watts used to MaH etc, so really thanks!

    And yes, you are correct about the...
  13. Question(s) Re: Hello all - Some questions from a future rover builder (BrainStem and H-bridge related)

    The atom is about as low-power as possible for an x86 cpu. The main reason for going with this over a pico is price, a pico ITX would cost over 2x as much!

    I don't know exactly how to figure out...
  14. Question(s) Re: Hello all - Some questions from a future rover builder (BrainStem and H-bridge related)

    So a little update:

    The Lynx tracked base looks very nice, however it is also quite expensive, and no it does not look very rugged.

    My thought is to use an RC tank for the base such as this...

    Thanks DB,

    To clear one thing up:
    I have this which is a robot kit featuring a BrainStem micro controller, 3 sharp sensors, and a very simple robot chassis.

    I was thinking to get started on...

    Hello All,

    As you can see I am new here and have a couple of questions before I embark into my renewed robotics journey.

    My goal is to eventually build a tracked robot that can be autonomous,...
