Self-stabilizing Camera Platform


A self-stabilizing camera can be used to keep your camera at the required level, irrespective of user movement. This can be used by filmmakers to capture steady shots without any noise due to motion.  It comprises of two high torque servo to control the movements in all planes. Along with servos, it has a gyroscope and accelerometer to detect the camera movement and hence act as a feedback system. The accelerometer and gyroscope are used to determine the roll and pitch of the wooden platform on which the camera has to be mounted. Once the sensors detect a disturbance in the position of the platform, the required data is send to the microcontroller in order to correct the error A complimentary filter is used to eliminate noise from the sensor … Continue reading

The High Performance A 32-Channel Digital R/C Servo Controller

A 32-Channel Digital RC Servo Controller

You’ve been looking and searching around the effective methods to build a cool multi-legged walking robot with over 30+ R/C servos, but the only downside is you haven’t actually found the perfect single controller to drive them all? You’re a lucky person, as you don’t need to find it anymore! In this case, the A 32-Channel Digital R/C Servo Controller will be able to help you overcome the above problem. For your information, it’s not easy to drive the versatile servos, as it requires the generation of a potentially large number of stable pulse width modulation (PWM) control signals. Well, thanks to the A 32-Channel Digital R/C Servo Controller, it can handle all the details of multi-channel PWM signal generation. In the same time, it’s being controlled through simple commands … Continue reading

The Hypersensitive Radioisotope Analyzer

Radioisotope Analyzer

Earth, our lovely homeland, is a very beautiful and mystery place. It covers with assorted natural resources and elements. Most of the elements can only be traced, if you’re having a hypersensitive equipment, such as the Radioisotope Analyzer. The radioisotope analyzer is a handheld instrument, which is used for identifying and studying sources of ionizing radiation. Basically, it processes the signal from a sensor named, “scintillation probe”. The scintillation probe is often being used to analyze, store the data and produce a graphic output known as an “energy spectrum”. The users can identify the radioisotope, based on the location and amplitude of peaks within the spectrum of one component. Frankly, this radioisotope analyzer can allow the complete system to be built in a handheld device. It includes the latest data … Continue reading

Seeker II – The Interactive Mini-Sumo Robot


For those that always involved themselves in the “Mini-sumo competition”, the Mini-sumo robot is very common to the developers. No matter you’re the amateur or the professional in the robotic development field, this Seeker II is going to amaze you here! For your information, this Seeker II is a low, fast and very aggressive mini-sumo robot, where is equipped with wide tires that provide a lot of traction than other mini-sumo did. The Seeker II’s brain is based on a Microchip PIC16F876 and is programmed in C language. Beside that, there PIC16F876 have several useful features, such as: It has two-channel hardware pulse width modulation (PWM), which is mainly for providing precise control over the speed of the two motors. Four analog to digital converters (ADC) are used to interface … Continue reading

The Easy-to-develop USB LED Fader


If you’re always fascinated with the LED fader, then this is your chance to build an USB LED fader! Ok, for those that didn’t know what the USB LED fader for, it actually a device to control a number of LEDs via USB. You can apply the USB LED fader for the following purposes: For displaying the online status of your internet connection, To monitoring the recording status of your video recorder, or Give you an early warning if the available disk-space is low! Technically, the LEDs are fully controlled with Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). By controlling it with the PWM, it’s not only control the on or off, but it enables the user to adjust the LEDs brightness as well! For your information, one LED can display some kind … Continue reading
