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 #023: Wireless Robot Control with an xBee

When you want to take your robot wireless but want to take it a step past R/C, an xBee is a prime candidate. The system works over 2.4GHz, similar to WiFi but what it provides is a simple wireless serial bridge. Meaning you can send a packet to the module and it’ll appear at the outputs of all xBees on that network. You don’t have to worry about subnets and IP addresses or any other ne...
