Build simple circuits on the Propeller Activity Board, and write Propeller C programs to interact with them. Blink lights, beep a speaker, measure voltage, and more.
Get started with C-language programming for the multicore Propeller microcontroller. The simple example programs use variables, do math, count loops, make decisions, and store information.
This mini-course will assist you in completing the “hands on” requirements of the BSA Robotics Merit Badge entitled “Section 4: Design, build, program, test”.
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!
Build a smart robot with this step-by-step tutorial for using the Robotics Shield Kit from Parallax and your own Ardunio Uno, Duemilanove, or Mega.
