Getting Started / Controlling the Balanduino with regular 2 ch TX/Receiver
« Last post by Jimmy on June 03, 2016, 06:59:28 PM »
Is there a way to connect or use a regular 2 CH Transmitter and receiver to control the balanduino bot?

Thanks,
Jimmy

Revision is correct. can you point me to a good source for motors and encoders?...I suspect the ones that I have (Chinese) might be the issue? What do you think?

The loop time is about 10 ms.

Please make sure that you have selected the right revision in the "Tools>Revision" menu. You can see the revision on your main board.

OK. Scratch that, the above happened once. Now, every time they go in the negative and seemingly do not stop getting smaller.

Stuff hit the fan at work, finally back to normal:
Values started at 0, in a few seconds climbed to 1900 and stayed there. Wheels still spinning opposite.

Questions / Re: Balanduino hardware taking damage from falling?
« Last post by Lauszus on April 15, 2016, 12:24:11 AM »
No the Balanduino hardware will not take damage from simply falling on the floor, as it is protected by the wooden plates which are held together using the threaded rods.

No the long beep can also mean that the Balanduino is not at rest when it calibrates the gyroscope at startup. Please see the following lines in the code: https://github.com/TKJElectronics/Balanduino/blob/master/Firmware/Balanduino/Tools.ino#L446-L462. This is called from the main function here: https://github.com/TKJElectronics/Balanduino/blob/master/Firmware/Balanduino/Balanduino.ino#L268.

The gyro drift you are seeing is likely caused by the calibration routing getting wrong values because the Balanduino is not at rest. I would recommend putting the Balanduino on its side when turning it on.

PS: Sorry for the long delay in my response. I must have missed you post in my inbox.

Software development / Re: LQR/LQG Controller
« Last post by Lauszus on April 14, 2016, 11:23:18 PM »
Currently a LQR controller is not implemented on the Balanduino, but I might be able to help you anyway, as I got a lot of experience in that field.
