ROBOTICS INVENTION SYSTEM 2.0
This page is the record which is playing LEGO MindStorms.
The assembled machine is introduced.
|#0||PATHFINDER||"PATHFINDER" which has appeared in the manual was assembled. Everybody will make it first.|
This was made referring to "Mushi-Mushi No.4" of.
MINDSTORMS INFO CENTER.
He avoids an obstacle with a touch sensor on either side, and walks on 6 foot.
"ROBERBOT" which has appeared in the manual was assembled.
This also avoids and runs an obstacle with a touch sensor on either side.
"INVENTORBOT" which has appeared in the manual was assembled.
A part of the nose is changed into it by the sound sensor being developed for Mr. Shirakawa in MINDSTORMS laboratory (Japanese). A sound sensor purchases and assembles the kit currently sold by TriState (Japanese).
If a right hand is touched, the upper half of the body will be shaken at right and left, and what was placed on the left hand in response to sound is thrown. When it throws, the sound to generate is gathered and the left motor is stopped to exactly good timing.
"ACROBOT" which has appeared in the manual was assembled.
It will back, if a front touch sensor collides with an obstacle, and direction is changed. The sound sensor is carried in both ears(?). And, it does not move well though it made to advance toward the direction which the sound does.(sigh)
The programming environment used NQC and RCXCC.
It is the first completeness(?) original work.
Although he wanted to make it 8 legs in fact, since parts, such as a gear, were insufficient, they are 4 legs. The part of #7111 is used for the leg. # Back is deceived with the tire.(^^;
|#6||GASHIGASHI-KUN II(Improvement version)||"GASHIGASHI-KUN II" was improved and Emotion Unit (Japanese) was carried.|
They are "GASHIGASHI-KUN III"
9V Battery Box is used for the power supply (006P battery) of Emotion Unit. output port can be used three by favor.
- A mood will become bad if a tactile sense(Touch sensor) is struck lightly(Less than 1 second).
- A mood will become good if a tactile sense(Touch sensor) is touched for a long time(1 seconds or more).
- If light is applied, an eye is closed, it will be dazzling and a mood will become bad.
-A mood makes it good order "It smiles and cries", "Common", "An antenna is moved with anger" and "It cries with sadness"
-If there is no fixed time(About 10 seconds) stimulus, an "eye will be closed" and it will sleep.
Since it idles occasionally in since the chain is used for axle part, I think that it will improve to a slight degree.
WonderSwan which attached WonderCommand-II is in "EMO-KUN" who made in the demonstration of
Emotion Unit (Japanese)
and this side.
The 4th MINDSTORMS festival (Japanese) It made for the technical demonstration.
It is reflected to PC Watch (Japanese) together.(^^;
"WWGP2001 machine" made to the WWGP2001 (Japanese)
final examination presentations of WonderCommand (Japanese).
It unites with a motion of a front wheel and a handle also moves. Missile on side can be launched!
This robot was made for the demonstration of
This robot runs after a yellow ball.
Movie(160x120) : ball.asf(200,922byte)
It is a photograph of PCB in RCX included in RIS2.0.
The same PCB as RCX included in RIS1.5 is used.
It was completely the same except one electrolysis capacitor being lost.
It is a photograph of PCB in USB IR TOWER included in RIS2.0.
An infrared remote control receiving unit is in an upper right corner.
Infrared LED is located in a line with the bottom of it in the shape of 3 radiation.
Surface mount type green LED(for indicators) is in the lower left, and it is red LED(for VLL)
that the it is downward again.
Big IC in the bottom It was ST72631
(8bit microcomputer which contained USB I/F).
# Are there many LED.(^^;
USB IR TOWER is supporting VLL output.
Then, the software for outputting VLL was made.
Please be used by making USB IR TOWER VLL mode at "LEGO USB tower" of a control panel.
VLL code is specified and performed within DOS window.
vll code0 code1 ... codeN
It attaches VLL and Mr. mac's page VLL will be played (Japanese) has detailed explanation.
When the parts of RIS1.5 was checked, it entered more mostly than the number which has appeared in the manual.
|Parts number(LEdit)||Parts name||Color||Number of manual publications||Actual number|
|%3024||Plate 1x1 Round||Black||2||3|
|%3647||Technic Gear 8 Tooth||Light-Gray||6||7|
|%4265C||Technic Bush 1/2 Smooth||Light-Gray||18||19|
|%4274||Technic Pin 1/2||Light-Gray||8||9|
|%32002||Technic Pin 3/4||Gray||16||17|
|%4459||Technic Pin with Friction||Black||24||25|
|%6019||Plate 1x1 with Clip Horizontal||Black||0||2|
RCX included in RIS1.5 does not have AC adapter input.
However, if parts were not only mounted,
when it thought that an inner PCB was the same as that of RCX included in RIS1.0,
and it could convert easily and it decomposed and checked, it turns out that that is not right.
Arrangement of parts has also changed delicately.
It is checking that IR TOWER is connected by RTS/CTS pin of IRTOWER short-circuiting inside,
and RcxCC etc. turning on/off RTS signal, and checking CTS signal.
It seems that however, IRTOWER is not recognized when delay after
RTS signal is turned on until CTS signal is turned on is 20ms or more.
LEGO and parts which were purchased were collected.
