I finally got to fly my quad (my first time ever!)
It's scratch built from angle aluminum and running MultiWii on an Arduino Mega. I'm controlling it via PC joystick over Wifi (soon to be controlled by iPhone too) thanks to my…Continue
Today I went to a mega store and I found this "broken" car for just 9.99 pounds, so I decided to buy it and replace the crappy car that I mounted all the stuffs.
The next week I will buy 1 ultrasound sensor, extension IO and a compass, them should help the car to drive in a specific direction ( i.e. to the north ) and I am going to avoid the…Continue
Mathworks started to support Arduino on their MATLAB/Simulink.
I didn't look through carefully, however, sounds really interesting.
Good news is that this feature will be supported in student license…Continue
this is my first post on this blog and I'd like to give some information about my new personal project. How you read on the title, the project is a RC CAR with Arduino nano that is controlled by TB6612FNG.
The final project will be a RC CAR controlled by Arduino nano and a few sensors, the big goal is to create a car that I…Continue

Plan is to mount under fuselage of Telemaster 12' and Mugin when it arrives.
Camera Position is being controlled by Arduino via ethernet, Pan, Til,t Zoom , and record to local SD,and h264 stream, works so far.
Nice thing about this camera is its speed. Also does great with its built in video stabilization.
My plan is…Continue
I've been working on a new version of our ArduEye using one of our "Stonyman" image sensor chips and decided to see if I can grab four dimensions of optical flow (X shift, Y shift, curl, and divergence) from a wide field of view. I wirebonded a Stonyman chip to a 1" square breakout board, and attached it to an Arduino Mega256 using a simple…Continue
Drotek a small French startup sell a new 10 DoF IMU that can be interfaced with Arduino cards ( 3,3V and 5v with an…Continue
Long time since my last post!
I'm glad to announce the new ArduIMU V3 that will take the place of the very successful ArduIMU v2 (flat version). We called it flat version because ArduIMU V2 was created in a time where 3 axis and even 2 axis gyros were not so common and we had to place some of the…Continue
I was looking for a parachute ejection system for one of my small UAV and I found the miga motors nanomuscle. Cheap SMA system linear actuator (less than 10$ unit), I was thinking about using some instead of the servos on UAV.
A few weeks ago the new version of the free Visual Micro addin for Visual Studio was released. The addin provides full featured, 100% compatible, arduino development inside all Visual Studio 2008 and 2010 versions (except for express). This release means that we can code, compile,…
Now that I got a couple of weeks' vacation from the army I finally had the time to work on some new hardware. Last week I made directional antennas for my UAS: thanks to IBCrazy for his fabulous BiQuad tutorial on RCGroups. Only an antenna tracker was missing.
Paparazzi GCS includes an antenna tracker -controller but as I've recently been…Continue
I'm building my own inertial navigation system --- one that isn't super complex, doesn't involve fancy filters, yet will provide plenty of accuracy. It's all about purposeful building... designing and building for what it WILL do, not what it MIGHT or could possibly be able to do.
Funny movie i made while waiting.
This is the sequel of my previous post, that I had to abandon more than 1 month ago, without actually being able to fly it... Ok, it's still not flying, but…Continue
Here's a long post about my first attempt at building a quadcopter.
One interesting and rather different feature is that I tried to use a .NET micro framework board (FEZ DOMINO)…Continue
I made this video showing the Ardupilot dreaming, the HK´s GCS taking telemetry data, and sending Tracker commands to an arduino, wich is driving two servos on a Trackers base.
(I´d specially like the last part...)
this project could be a bit out of scope here but this is also a recycling project. I used an old Ardupilot board and 3 old servos to construct this robot... And there is also a nice story behind this project:
Some weeks ago, my daughter (4 years old) said me:…
