Guest Blog: UBC Thunderbots
UBC Thunderbots is an engineering design team at the University of British Columbia, where students create and compete with autonomous soccer-playing robots. Since the team began in 2006, we have been continuously improving our robots so we can then compete on the international level at the annual RoboCup competition. After years of hard work, we […]
Guest Blog: TURAG
For more than ten years, students at the Robotics Working Group of the Technical University of Dresden, or TURAG for short, have been developing mobile robotics solutions independently for participation in national and international competitions. The Eurobot robotics contest, which is held once a year in France, is the main motivation for the working group. […]
The Engineer’s Swiss Army Knife Running MicroPython
Access Trinamic modules with a simple Python script using Trinamic’s TMCM-0960-MotionPy, providing a clear insight into system communications regardless of the interface or bus system used, speeding up automated testing and analysis in the field or on the factory floor. The simple module replaces computers and application software for debugging of automation applications running TMCL, […]
Controlling brushless motors with ROS
By Shubham Sharma One of the challenges while developing any robotic hardware is to handle the communications with the motors along with sending commands to them as per the generated trajectory in real time. Since the motor accepting trajectories should respect the time limits, it becomes important that the communication between the motor driver and […]
Additive Manufacturing in Space
To reduce the cost of space missions, team AIMIS-FYT decided to build a 3D printer for zero-gravity environments. The result is a cartesian-style 3D printer that prints and cures resin.
