Have you ever wanted to make your very own robot, but feel like you don’t know where to start? By combining a chipKit Uno32 and Motorshield with a set of three omni-wheels it was easy to drive a robot though Octoblu’s IoT platform. “The chipKIT™ Uno32™ is based on the popular Arduino™ open source hardware prototyping platform but adds the performance of the Microchip PIC32 microcontroller. The Uno32 is the same form factor as the Arduino™ Uno board and is compatible with many Arduino™ shields.” “The chipKIT™ Motor Shield is an expansion board for use with the chipKIT Uno32 and chipKIT uC32. It provides additional circuitry and connectors for the Uno32 and uC32 to drive various motors types (digilentinc.com).” Through a little imagination and Octoblu’s IoT platform, you can now create your dream robot.
