Automation Resources and Discussion V1: 'Twas the byte before Christmas
7 replies, posted
Hello! Are you a programmer that is dissatisfied that your code can't effect the real world? Are you disappointed that your laptop can't go and get your coffee for you? Or are you simply a more humble person who wants to be productive but at the same time is incredibly lazy? Maybe your a Factorio addict who wants to actually make money while wasting away hours upon hours automating things.
Regardless of how you got here I wish you a warm welcome and feel free to shoot the shit about Automation in general.
On the subject of scifi:
Unless the mods barge in here and tell me I'm out of line Scifi is ok to talk about here given how almost every robotics community that focuses only on robotics dies because it fails to establish a culture due to simply a lack of people interested. So if you've just read prelude to the foundation it's all cool to extrapolate here but I think there'd be better places to put that but its robot-ish so your fine.
Anyway here's some blue robots doing things:
Hobby automation stuff is also amazing and if you built a 3d printer out of a few stepper motors and a raspberry pi i'd love to see it!
Before we go on don't push yourself on this stuff, you don't need to learn everything at once and I'm not going to sugar coat it: This stuff is nearly as dry as the Mojave.
CAUTION: Massive sound variations and due to how robotics is a world wide thing it's actually surprisingly difficult to find videos in English.

Help I locked myself in a safety cage with a robot after telling it to swing around wildly and I don't feel very safe anymore what do I do!?:
An actual forum dedicated to robotics that's basically dead but has a few nuggets of information you might find useful. alternatively just ask this thread. Also don't get hit.
If you know of any other companies that have publicly accessible resources or better tutorials of stuff above please contact me and give me the link(s)
Oh. I thought this was about the car company tycoon game.
No its just regular car tycoons sorry.
I've got a robotic snake in the making for my diploma thesis, recently got it to work, it's nothing too fancy, just testing if we can get it to work and it kinda does, should I post a vid?
go for it
Okay, here's a simulation of a 3-link snake I've done in V-REP some time ago using serpenoid inputs (just a specific periodic, sinosoidal, input) to rotate the servomotors in each joint:
And here's the first session where I could make it move as I want, using a simple input where the angle for each joint is periodically increasing/decreasing by a constant:
It feels weird not bashing my head against the wall trying to get siemens plcs to talk to send data to each other reliably... Winter break is unnerving
It even sounds like an angry snake
