Another quick post. If you are just starting on small scale robots you may wondering what motors to use for movement. A quick google search may scare you actually 🙂

I am telling you this because I had a similar experience when I was starting out. You see, if you look for ‘robot motors’ you are most probably be taken to a DC motors website. First of all a decent DC motor would probably cost more than a newcomer wants to spend just to test it out. And most important it is quite complicated as you need to mess around with DC motor controllers and other stuff like gearing. Read more…

Zigbee Networks – PIC Xbee project

April 1st, 2009 13 comments

Hello again,
Long time no see huh! Well I was pretty busy with many many things. I hope I can find more time to write more posts here. Today we are going to talk about PIC Zigbee projects.

Last year I was working on a PIC project that needed wireless communication and I made a little research on the internet where I came across ZigBee networks. Zigbee specification is ideal for low power applications. It is actually an offspring of the IEEE 802.15.4-2003 standard which is aiming low power wireless communications. Read more…
