taking over the world, one robot at a time

Mr.Chip

Yeah, I can get a little carried away with electronics.

Struggle

Playing with extension tubes and macro videography.

So, this dude landed on my lunch table this afternoon upside down. It took him 40 minutes to flip back right and fly away. He never gave up.

Robot Chariot

What better way to test some loads on a robot, than to have a human (dork) dragged around?

Cooling Fans

Trying to keep the newly designed high current motor driver cool with some forced cooling. They are taking a lot of abuse.

Feeder Jams

I may not have to deal with traffic jams, but I do have to deal with feeder jams.

Industrial Servo Drives

Now that the simulations are done, it was time to hook up some industrial servo drives over a CANopen network to the simulator. So far so good!

GSM modem

Testing out the new GSM modem. It’s a miracle that this mess successfully connects to our servers over cell phone towers!

Late Night Robot Simulations

Working on the OpenRAVE simulations for one of our latest projects at work.

Debugging

Sometimes debugging a circuit takes more time than actually making it. In this case, everything worked out just fine :) This setup consists of the motion controller board talking to the drives via SPI and reading temperature and quadrature encoder values.

Our circuit boards have a heart :)
