Herkulex Servos and PyHerkulex


Herkulex are the smart servos manufactured by Dongbu Robotics. Smart servos are far superior to RC servos in performance and quality. They make the ideal choice for making robots. Herkulex servos stand in between the common RC servos and the high end harmonic geared servo motors.

Indian Online Shops selling Electronics & Robotics Components


There are a handful of online shops in india that provides electronics components. Some of them specilizes in robotics components alone, while some specializes in embedded boards, while some others provides all types of components and boards. The prices of the same component varies greatly among different shops, so it is wise to refer as many shops before making a heavy purchase.

The shops  are:

STARTED WORKS OF THE HIGH ALTITUDE BALLOON PROJECT


I started the works of a high altitude  balloon project. I dream to send a helium filled balloon packed with electronic stuff to the upper layers of atmosphere. The proposed electronic stuffs include an onboard flight controller computer, preferably something like beagleboard, a digital camera, various sensors to measure atmospheric conditions like Continue reading “STARTED WORKS OF THE HIGH ALTITUDE BALLOON PROJECT”

STARTED WORKS OF THE HIGH ALTITUDE BALLOON PROJECT


I started the works of a high altitude  balloon project. I dream to send a helium filled balloon packed with electronic stuff to the upper layers of atmosphere. The proposed electronic stuffs include an onboard flight controller computer, preferably something like beagleboard, a digital camera, various sensors to measure atmospheric conditions like temperature, pressure, humidity and if possible cosmic radiation. In addition to this there should be a navigation system comprising of gps locators, radio control etc This project is unlike all the other high altitude balloon projects because of its real time data transfer capability.  In normal balloon projects, the data gathered during flight, ie, photos taken and sensor readings are stored in an onboard computer which is recovered after the flight. This project aims to create a high speed communication link between the balloon and a ground station using the unliscenced 2.4GHz ISM band.
