Tech Thursday #028: Available Track and Wheel Options

If there is one thing we have learned, it’s that track design is not trivial. We have been building treaded robots for over 10 years, and, at generation 4, they’ve been through many stages of evolution. It takes a lot of research and development in order to produce treads that stay on under tough circumstances. We’ve done it, performing NIST qualification tests using our LT2 robot and generatio...

Tech Thursday #019: A Fun Tracked Robot with a Arduino

We had fun building this robot. He may look familiar… We started with MLT-JR custom length tracks and added a simple shell and head. The motors are driven with a Sabertooth 2×5 Motor Controller. All the parts (other than the drive train) were made with our 3D printers. Then we gave it a quick paint job. We embedded two IR sensors on the front and put a Arduino in the middle cavity to dr...

Tech Thursday #017: How to Remotely Start/Stop Your Lawn Mower

Today’s Tech Thursday topic is using RC switches to hack your lawn mower for a remote start and stop. We’ve done this with our 4WD remote control lawn mower and our Remote Control snow blower. Here’s how we did it. We used the following components: Spektrum DX6 Controller with AR6210 Receiver Pololu RC Switch Relay Board (you can use a 5V relay) Servo pigtails The RC switch is needed to comm...

Tech Thursday #014: Home Automation Chicken Coop – Part 1

System Architecture Introduction: Yes I know, why automate a chicken coop? Well we just wanted to do a starter home automation project and one thing led to another and now I have the fanciest chicken coop around. Spoiled chickens lay good eggs… It also is because I am a little lazy and don’t want to get up every morning to let the chickens out and go out each night to close the coop. S...
