The Corpsman Up unit is a small, rugged device that provides real-time outputs of vital functions, in this case heart rate, when assessing a casualty. Multiple patients’ vitals can be monitored by simply switching to their channel using the rotary encoder and observing the output on the OLED monitor.
Since your BOE Shield-Bot already has IR receivers, how about using an infrared TV remote to drive it around? This project provides the instructions and Arduino code.
Pairing a Memsic 2-axis accelerometer with XBee RF modules makes a powerful and fun wireless tilt controller for your robot. One XBee module and a Memsic Dual-Axis Accelerometer are mouted on a BASIC Stamp HomeWork Board. The other XBee module mounts on a BASIC Stamp controlled robot. SumoBot wrestling is a perfect application for this!
Spread a little holiday cheer!
The S2 Robot plays ‘O Tannenbaum’ to objects it sees. The hacker port is used to blink lights on a Christmas tree in time with the song.
The BOE Shield-Bot is setting out to Maker Faire Bay Area 2012 to spend some time in the Maker Shed, sporting a Ping))) Ultrasonic Distance Sensor and Mounting Bracket Kit to look both ways before crossing the street. Your Shield-Bot can get ready to roam too, with these instructions and example code.
Bring the spirit of the holidays with you anywhere using this DIY caroling device and light display!
