I’ve built quite a few small robots over the years. Track driven with differential steering to small two wheel self-balancing. I wanted to build a robot/vehicle that could be a platform for different types of tests in the future. My initial thoughts are to include the following requirements. Requirements A modular build approach that allows […]Continue Reading
I’m setting up a new Raspberry Pi this morning and one of the first things I do with any new Pi is change the pi user password. Doing so is a very simple task. Sources of Information Much of this information comes from the following articles. Official Raspberry Site – Linux Users (add, edit and […]Continue Reading
One thing I do quite a bit of is testing and development on both the Arduino micro-controller and Raspberry Pi micro-computer. I have a few different test environments and they all use some sort of breadboard. When I’m using multiple controllers/computers, sensors and input devices, I need the breadboards to be powered. This can, and […]Continue Reading
Earlier this week I wrote an article about how to use the DHT22/AM2302 temperature and humidity sensor with interrupts on an Arduino.; you can see that article here. After spending more time with the DHT22/AM2302 sensor, I’ve learned the humidity part of the sensor is not accurate at all. The temperature part of the sensor […]Continue Reading
There are many sites where you can find Arduino schematics and code to read a temperature and humidity sensor then display that data on the Serial Monitor. I have not worked with the (more accurate) DHT22/AM2302 sensors and wanted to test them. In addition, I will be demonstrating how to use interrupts (instead of delay) […]Continue Reading
Over the last year or so I’ve been toying around with the idea of building a robot test platform. Because everything I build has to have a name, I have coined this “RMRoboTest”!Continue Reading
