A little probing with a Quad

The biggest advantage of Winter is that you don’t have bath till just a few people say that u stinks! Umm, just the last week I got the parts for my quadcopter that I order from Hobbyking.  This was my first order and my first experience with the flying things, so I started up with a little goofing around at the forums and obviously went through a lot of tutorials.  Also, saw a few lists of components that people ordered at their first time.  But I had a few bents for a few things, so didn’t match with mine.   Then we (Shantanu and Saurabh) started reading the descriptions and googled a lot and finally came up with the following options.

Here Comes Our TurtleBot! Person Follower

TurtleBot, our inspiration source.  You can read the whole of it.  I was too much excited reading that and looking a lot of videos of it, then decided to make one of my own.This post is all about the design and structure of the turtlebot that we made.  I am far from being a Pro, so no CAD software, just a direct integration of Me and a Carpenter.

LIDAR interfacing in ROS!

Hey guys! Its been time since the last post.  I have been busy in some studies and other projects.  But yeah I have got another cool project this time and it is related to Robotics!

Yeah, Robotics, this is the first time I am starting with robotics.  Trying to make out a Turtle bot thing.

Collecting the material and resources for such autonomous body(I am inserting a few of my things), I got a LIDAR,  the lidar is hokoyu URG04lx.  The lidar is working on a lot of data and the processing is also very fast.  The inbuilt controller in the lidar actually takes care of the laser thing and finally gives us the distance via serial communication.  The Serial port is hidden as the Lidar is made USB compatible with a driver in there lidar itself.  So it becomes a direct USB plug n play thing.

In linux, the device may appear as /dev/ACM0 or something. Read the rest of this entry
