RF Remote Control System For Robotics Control

You have no way to go in this Christmas holiday and you’re a little bit bored about it? Well, with some of your creativity and the power of PicBasic, you can build a very outstanding creation. It would be even better, if you have the required knowledge in RF remote control, as it’s way too cool not to use in your project! First thing first, you should be caution that the larger breadboard you’re going to use is working off can cause a lot of signal deviance. It’s due to the metal traces on the breadboard that worked like small capacitors and changing your circuit dynamics. For overcome this problem, you should use the Reynolds Electronics RWS-434 and TWS-434 RX/TX pair. The Reynolds Electronics TWS-434 module is proved superior in performance and it’s cheaper as well! Hence, with that and two PIC16F84s, you can start to work on the serial RF link from your control interface to the robot. Furthermore, you might also find that the TX/RX pair can be worked very well with the serial communications commands built into… Continue reading

The PicBasic – It’s Time For You to Experiment With the PIC16F877!

As you know that, the PIC has being widely used in the electronic industry. Hence, it’s a very familiar phenomenon where you’ll find the PIC in the electrical appliances. Well, if you’re interested on how to experiment with the PIC16F877, then you should spend a few minutes and sit in front your desktop/laptop, as today you’ve the chance to learn how to use the PIC16F877 to control and interface with the Dallas DS1820 1-Wire Digital Thermometer. If you refer to the above figure, you can see that how easy the PicBasic makes it to communicate with smart peripherals, such as the DS1820. In order to accomplish the exact same thing, what you should pay attention in this experiment is the assembly language is like the difference between day and night! To be honest, this is an excellent example of the pure simplicity of using PicBasic. Instead of the huge time savings, you also don’t need to spend all day long doing the hand coding… Meanwhile, if you’re new to using ceramic resonators, the center-pin of the resonator should be connected… Continue reading

The Easy to Navigate Free Servo Control Software

Are you fascinated about the Servo and you’re always involving yourself in these types of projects? However, you’re thinking that it’s totally a painful experience, when you can’t found the suitable servo control software, which it’s written in “Visual Basic 5 Pro”? Well, if you’ve been searching for the reliable free serial servo control software for such a long time, then you now can stop the tiresome scouring journey, as you’ve now found the free servo control software, which it’s well written in Visual Basic 5 Pro! Basically, this free servo control software uses the PC serial port “com1” to talk to a Basic Stamp, or a PIC Micro programmed with MicroEngineerings PicBasic. Thus, you can use it to test any hobby servos! The port 0 on the stamp (port RB0) on the PIC is connected through a 22K resistor directly to the PC’s serial port “TX” on “com1”. Furthermore, the stamp or PIC will receive serial information from the pc to position seven hobby servo motors that attached to port pins 1-7. So, what are you waiting for? It’s… Continue reading
