It’s been a lot since latest post… the project has not stopped, but the time is missing, so blog update is confined into limited time slots. Who follows the news on Twitter, Facebook and Youtube knows that also this year MyzharBot was demoing in the Nvidia’s booth at GTC 2016…
The first drawings of the pieces of the new MyzharBot v4 has been sent to the laser cut service… about 20 days and we can see the new track structure with the new rubber tracks.
Officine Robotiche 2015 has gone and MyzharBot v3.1.1 is ready to leave its space to MyzharBot v4. The work to reach the goal of the new version is long, but it goes on.
MyzharBot wants to be autonomous, but mostly it wants to be an autonomous OUTDOOR robot… so what is missing in MyzharBot to be a perfect outdoor Robot?
Since I decided to add an Asus Xtion Pro Live to MyzharBot, I had a hard question to reply: how do I fasten the sensor to the robot? Today I finally solved the problem using a 3D printed support designed by a user from Thingiverse website.
As mentioned in the previous post, MyzharBot is migrating to ROS. One of the first step to realize was the porting of the interface to the RoboController board using modbus protocol. Well, it is ready! The rosnode that will perform the Motion Control of the Robot is able to connect to…
A new photo gallery is available: the NVidia Jetson TK1 is now mounted on the upper horizontal base and powered by the 12V generated by the programmable DC-DC converter. Now it’s time to port the software on the new board and to start to create Computer Vision algorithms!!!
A new rendering is available: MyzharBot is now at version 3.1.1. The new brain, NVidia Jetson TK1, fits perfectly on the electronics base and a transparent protection has been designed. Now its time to cut the protection with the laser machine and to mount the new brain onboard.
Today I realized a simple Laser Cut protection for the NVidia Jetson TK1 board. Now I’m designing a plane to fix it onboad of MyzharBot 😀
The new chassis is almost ready… motors and mechanics of the tracks are still missing, but the impact of the black colour is really good.
