Here on the blog, we spend a lot of time working with 5 VDC sensors and controllers (Arduino, for example). And, a lot of that knowledge is a great primer for getting into Industrial Controllers like PLC’s (Programmable Logic Controllers). However, when you start working with PLC’s and 24 VDC sensors you have to follow […]
The Raspberry Pi is a single board computer that also has a set of GPIO pins. GPIO stands for General Purpose Inputs and Outputs. Like Arduino, you can use the GPIO pins to attach sensors and electronic components. This tutorial is designed to give you a crash course in Raspberry Pi GPIO pins, and how […]
The epitome of robotics is obstacle detection and avoidance. With a simple HC-SR04 sensor, you can detect objects with using ultrasonic waves (sound). In this project, we will use the HC-SR04 sensor and write software for our Robot Tank to avoid obstacles. We’ll make it a bit more complex by utilizing a servo motor to […]
There are many feats of learning Arduino. Besides plugging in your board and downloading the “blink” sketch, it’s important to learn more about digital inputs. The epitome of digital inputs is push buttons. Push buttons are used for a variety of applications to trigger events. In this tutorial, we’re going to explore how to record […]
If you’re anything like me, then you enjoy building mobile robots. As I’m sure you’re aware, mobile robots are comprised of 5 parts: chassis, motors, controllers, sensors, and power. To cover three of these groups, you’ll need to properly wire the motors to the controllers (motor and master) and then add your power supply. It’s […]
The Raspberry Pi is a single-board linux computer that has exposed General Purpose Inputs and Outputs (GPIO). In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to program the Raspberry Pi to control an LED using Node-RED. Then, we will create a dashboard UI to control the LED from any web browser. You will need […]
