So I ordered a DF Robot kit and got some help to put it together. I want to control the wheels with my netduino. What I want to do is simple. Press the netduino's button, and start the 4 wheels in the same direction, full power.
Raspberry Pi: 15 Accessories Elevate Pi From Novelty to Workhorse EE Times The Royal Academy of Engineering awarded its prestigious Silver Medal award to Dr. Eben Upton, a co-founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, in June 2013.
Some of the best DIY projects use microcontrollers or cheap single board computers to automate awesome stuff. But Between the Arduino, the Raspberry Pi, and the BeagleBone, it's hard to figure out which is best for a project.
Novena open source laptop trades Raspberry Pi headers for power The H After having announced the project at the end of last year, the hardware hacker says he went back to the work bench and revised the board design, going with a more powerful FPGA...
If you use your computer for playing music, chances are at least once you've wished you had a remote control for it. Hacker Owen Trueblood wanted the same thing, so he hacked a TV remote to work with an infrared sensor attached to his computer.
Using an old TV remote, an ATtiny13 microcontroller, and an infrared receiver pulled out of an old VCR, he was able to set up the remote to control the computer's volume by hacking the IR sensor into a USB. Seeing as how most computers don't come with a remote, this is handy if you're using a computer specifically for music playing all day long.
Check out all the stuff crammed into a small swath of strip board. It's got that characteristic look of a roll-your-own Arduino board, which is exactly what it is. [S. Erisman] shows you how to build your own copy of his YABBS; Yet ...
When you buy a Raspberry Pi, it may or may not be sold with an SD card. The SD card is important because this is where the Raspberry Pi keeps its operating system and is also where you will store your documents and programs.
OBD or On Board Diagnostics and OBD-II is a standard for communicating and reading data from a car, its standard across most modern cars and the likelihood is you have a connector in your car which you can read all sorts of data about the car such as RPM, Speed, Temperature and a million other things you wouldn't guess a car was monitoring.
