Omicron4 Development/Progress Information
Some questions that I am pondering:
1) Can I make the robot track in a relatively straight line using a digital compass for feedback?
2) Is it worth $0.99/month for Arduino Create access which permits using Chromebooks as dev stations?
3) Can I write a program for the Arduino that can control and read a bunch of PINGs without using some sort of timers and still be responsive to all the other sensors?
I think the answers to all these questions is probably YES.
Here are some ideas/plans (12/6/17; pages 1-6) that I have been working on.
Pg1: Main Drive Controls - This diagram shows the general concept for the main drive system control logic (12/11/17).
Pg2: I2C Bus Devices for Robot - This diagram shows the I2C Bus devices that I'd like to include on the robot.
Pg3: Bit Sensor Inputs for Robot - This list summarizes the digital sensors (bit inputs) that I am planning to add.
Pg4: I/O Summary List for Robot - This list summarizes the I/O of the robot.
Pg5: Left Motor Controls for Robot - This schematic shows the left motor control relay hookup.
Pg6: Right Motor Controls for Robot - This schematic shows the right motor control relay hookup.
Here is the battery power charging and distribution system (12/6/17).
