If there's one thing we've learned, it’s that track
design is never trivial. We've been building treaded
robots for over 10 years. At generation 4, they’ve been
through many stages of evolution. Read more

Tech Thursday #039: An Automated Heat Shrink Cutter!

This is not something everyone needs, but it is something that is fun and cool to build. Maybe not the exact same thing, but some variation thereof… This is a heat shrink cutter. It uses a stepper motors to move the heat shrink through the feeder made of 3D printed wheels. The heat shrink is cut with a pair of scissors that are violently actuated via a pneumatic cylinder. The heat shrink fal... Read More »

Tech Thursday #036 – Reading RC Pulses with an Arduino

This week, I will be explaining how to read RC pulses with an Arduino. On our robots, the most common configuration for an RC-Arduino system involves using a Spektrum transmitter + receiver combo with the receiver outputs wired to the Arduino. Before we get into the code, you should take a moment to read about RC pulses at the top of this support page. The code I will be referencing is available o... Read More »
