Pixy2 Camera – Object Recognition with Arduino & Raspberry Pi

Pixy2 Camera

The Pixy2 is an amazing camera that is capable of object detection, line tracking and barcode reading. All this in a tiny and very affordable little package

In this article I’ll take a look at the Pixy2. I’ll show you how to hook it up to an Arduino and how to train it to recognize objects. You wil see how easy it is to work with this camera to add vision sensing to your next project

A Drone You Can Program – Introducing PlutoX

PlutoX Aerial Robotics Kit

The PlutoX Aerial Robotics Kit is a DIY quadcopter that you can program and add your own hardware to. This unique device is perfect for experimenters, hobbyists and basically anyone who is interested in developing a project that can fly.

In this article I’ll introduce you to the PlutoX and to the Cygnus IDE, the development environment you’ll use to write code for the drone.

Arduino UV Index Meter – Measuring UV Light

Arduino UV Index Meter

Ultraviolet Light is used in many industrial and medical applications. We also receive a dose of UV light from sunshine, and while a little UV light is good for you excessive exposure can lead to eye and skin damage.

In this article I will explain how to safely work with ultraviolet light and I’ll show you how to build a UV Index Meter that can accurately measure the level of UV and help keep you safe in the sunshine.

So grab your hat and sunscreen and follow along!

Welcome to the Workshop!

The DroneBot Workshop website will be undergoing a “facelift’ and getting some exciting new features.

These changes will be done over a period of several days.  During this time the website will be operational but some features or pages may be temporarily unavailable.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Hopefully, these changes will make the site an even more useful resource for you.

I would be interested in getting your feedback on the website once these updates are completed.

Thanks for your understanding.
