Thread: The Bratinator Project

    Re: The Bratinator Project

    <p><font color="black"><font face="Verdana">Its been a long while since I have been around. I appreciate all the positive feedback. I haven't done much with my Bratinator but I did recently charge him up and let him walk around just a few days ago. The only update I have is the development of basic moves that can be called on as subroutines in the program. </font></font></p>
    <p>&nbsp;</p>
    <p><font color="black"><font face="Verdana">The itch to get working with it again has returned and I would like to try getting the eyes, ears and speech working like I once had it before toasting my board. For the ears, I want to try using the Basic Stamp BS2px with the built in compare pins to see if I can get something working. I also want to get some IR LEDs for the eyes for a bare bones solution for vision.</font></font></p>

    Project update:

    I have added IR "eyes" to the skull and I also built a new sound sensor circuit that is a major improvement from the last design. The IR sensors are simple BOE Bot IR emitters and one receiver module. Instead of having two sets, I only have one set, so one emitter, and one receiver, each in its own eye socket.

    I have taken video of the experiments but I'm pressed for time, so I will have to post links to them later.

    Yes, it?s on the shelf, but not forgotten. I have the board in Eagle, but I'm not ready to send it off just yet. I was working with other things like IR vision, sequence steps, and audio circuits.

    What?s the latest on your projects(s)?

    with rare exception the majority of the electronics / software ones stop when I head home at the end of the day. got smacked on my cycle about a month or so ago which just makes all lifes special moments all the better. bike wasn't hurt much and I can walk on the leg so it coulda been much much worse. For a few seconds there I wondered if I was gonna become a customer for some of our own products.
    I'll get around back to hobby stuff eventually... but I think you've heard that before, heh.

    OT, I don't remember anything really wrong with the later circuits you sent just some tweaking needed... when you want to pick it up again send them to the yahoo e-mail and I'll go through it with you again. Be neat to see yer bot strutting his stuff again.

    I think I have it complete except for the power protection. I was not sure if I should bother with it or not since my plan was to tap into the BB2 regulated power. It would be nice though to be able to use a variety of power options which would require a regulator and power protection built in. If you have Eagle Cad, I could email the file to you.
