First, we had Velociryder V1.
|It actually worked.|
|Woo waterjet aluminum.|
|This one worked too!|
|I couldn't find a picture, so here's a render. It didn't work.|
|With 20% more height!|
|Giving a good view of the encoders and motors.|
|From the side, showing the small sprocket for the encoder.|
New and improved, with:
- Digital accelerometer and gyroscope, less analog signals to corrupt!
- No pivoting rear section whatsoever; strain gauges for steering!
- Actual skateboard deck to stand on!
- Overengineered 80/20 frame for no structural failures!
- PIC24H core for double the speed of an Arduino!
- Quadrature encoders for real motor control!
- 5 Ah longpack! (That's one more amp-hour than before)!
In the time that I have been not posting updates, I have created a control board, complete with DC regulator, super differential amplifiers for the strain gauges, and sensors.
|Ooh, aah. And a logo! The actual size is 3.75" x 1.00"|
There are still a couple kinks I hope will work itself out. The first is the incredibly wide motors are probably going to hit the ground.
Welp, here goes another build marathon. I thought I was done with them after the Inventure Prize last semester.
