The DF Robot 5 DOF Robot Arm kit is a high-quality robotic arm that you can assemble yourself. With heavy duty servo motors and sturdy aluminum parts this inexpensive arm is perfect for your robotics experiments
Follow along as I assemble the robot arm. I’ll also build a simple robot arm controller based on the Arduino Nano and the PCA9685 16-channel PWM module.
Servo Motors are a staple for hobbyists in a variety of fields. Whether you’re building model planes and boats or working with robotics you are sure to come up with dozens of applications just perfect for a servo motor.
Come and explore the use of inexpensive analog servo motors. They are inexpensive and easy to use. When coupled with an Arduino you can build all sorts of projects that move.
And if you need LOTS of servo motors we have just the thing for you – the PCA9685 16 Channel PWM controller. Using this board you can control 16 servos with just two connections to your Arduino. And you can expand that to 992 servos if you really need a lot of motors!
Liquid Crystal Displays or LCDs are an excellent way to display characters and data in your Arduino projects. They are inexpensive and very easy to use.
In this article you’ll learn how to add LCD displays to your Arduino project, both hardwired and using the I2C bus connection. You will also learn to use a popular LCD Keypad Shield which as a 2-line LCD along with 6 push buttons.
Learn to use the popular nRF24L01 radio modules with an Arduino, using the RadioHead library.
In this article we will conduct several experiments sending data between two Arduinos with the nRF24L01. We will then take what we have learned and build a wireless joystick controller for our robot car!
Time to take a second look at the Google AIY Voice Kit. In this installment I’ll take the AIY Voice Kit out of its cardboard box and put it onto a breadboard so that I can experiment with using the kit to control devices like LEDs and DC Motors.
Follow along as I use the Google Cloud Speech API and some Python code to make the AIY Voice Kit come to life!
