  1. http://youtu.be/I0JuGvbfIIE http://boosterbot.in https://github.com/Hylian/BoosterBot http://hackaday.io/project/1845-BoosterBot Here's a BoosterPack that @@szhao, jwp071, and I are working on. It's a BoosterPack that turns a 40-pin Launchpad into a fully functional robot. It has two Micro Metal Gearmotors from Pololu driven by a DRV8833 motor driver IC and has five QRE1113 reflectance sensors from Fairchild for line tracking. It also has breakouts for a Sharp IR distance sensor and a servo. For power, a 3xAAA battery holder fits between the LP headers, which powers the 3.3V and
  2. Since I am working on the Robotics Boosterpack with @@HylianSavior and @@jwp071, I decided to make a prototype with the box LaunchPad comes with. I've used Firmata to send command to LaunchPad. Check out my other post here. A quick overview of what's inside. Hardware - G2 LaunchPad Box - MSP430F5529LP - Fuel Tank Boosterpack - DRV8833 Motor Drive Control - HC-06 Bluetooth - Pololu Gear Motor - Caps, wires, breadboard Software - Firmata over serial (enabled by Bluetooth) - Energia Library on LP - NodeJS on PC
  3. Just thought I would put this here for now. I'm currently working on assembling the PCB that I have right now. It uses just about all of the pins, which means that it can't really work with any other boards, and technically isn't a BoosterPack because of the form factor, but I digress. Because the resolution of the image that I have is too large, here's a link.
  4. Using my RedBot BoosterPack I have created a small remote control robot. The motors + chassis costs $15 from SparkFun so it's a pretty low cost solution to get started in robotics. On the controller side I use the CC1101L for wireless communication and the Educational BoosterPack MKII for the joystick. The F5529 LaunchPad simply reads the joystick value and decides which way the robot should move and transmits the data using the CC1101L. Here is a picture of the controller, note the CC1101L is on the bottom of the LaunchPad to make the joystick easy to use. On the robot side the F552
  5. I have finished my first revision of the RedBot BoosterPack. For those that don't know SparkFun has a robotics kit they call the "RedBot". Which is basically an Arduino, robot chassis and a bunch of sensors. This BoosterPack basically replaces the Arduino and allows you to plug in your favorite 40-pin LaunchPad to interact with the hardware. Check out my GitHub link below for more information on the differences. SparkFun sells the robot chassis and motors for $15 on its website, using it with this BoosterPack and a LaunchPad is a low cost way to get into robotics. I have started to port t
  6. I'm trying to control a hexapod, 18 servos, no other sensors for now, using the matlab/simulink interface and a launchpad. Has anyone done this that may know of a beginner walk through for like a robtic arm, or a simple rolling bot? I've already done a simple one using Arduino, but I'm fond of the Launchpad.
