  • CrumbleBot Mk2 Robot for Crumble (CrumBot2) (CRMBOT2)
    CrumbleBot Mk2 Robot for Crumble Adventures and Experiments

    The CrumbleBot Mk2 is an ideal way to introduce young (and old) children to robotics using the fantastic Crumble controller.

    All programming with the Crumble is extremely easy: drag, drop and click is all that is required to accomplish hundreds of simple and more complex tasks

    CrumbleBot Mk2 builds on the success of the Mk1 with lots more features:
    • 8 Super-bright RGB LEDs - 'Sparkles'
    • 2 push-button switches
    • Easy to use Buzzer
    • Simple jumper connection system - removes the need for croc clips
    • "Wire-free", low-profile battery holder (no USB connectors or wires to get broken)
    • Modified motor mounting positions to reduce dust ingress into the gearbox
    • Improved, smooth-running, front caster
    • Powered front accessory connector
    • Additional mounting holes near rear to allow fitting of a "second deck"

    With this robot kit you can do experiments for:
    • Basic movements (forward, reverse, left spin, right spin)
    • More complex turns (by moving one motor slower than the other)
    • Line following using the built-in line sensors with indicators
    • Light seeking or light avoiding using the built-in light sensors
    • Using the built-in Sparkles to give indications of what is happening
    • Use the built-in push-button switches to start/stop the program, change mode or anything else you want

    Simple programs to accomplish line following and light seeking are shown in the pictures for the listing.

    Crumble controller is NOT included unless option is selected

    Optional Addons available:
    • Ultrasonic distance sensor - simply screws on to the front powered accessory connector

  • 4tronix PZM Pi Zero Motor Shim (PZM01)

    Pi Zero Motor Shim - Motor Controller for (almost) any Raspberry Pi Project


    Add Motors to (Almost) Any Pi Zero Project

    2016-01-22_0008a

    This tiny little board (38 x 16mm) can be added to a Raspberry Pi Zero (or any other Pi for that matter) to provide dual H-Bridge control of 2 DC motors.

    It is so thin (0.8mm) that it can be soldered onto the bottom of the connector (assuming you have added one to your Pi Zero), or you can solder on the female or male headers included in the kit so you can connect and remove it, however you have configured your Pi Zero.

    2016-01-22_0007a

    Above shows the PZM with a female header added so it can be plugged onto a "normal" male header as shown below, Note how the PZM sticks out from the Pi, so other boards can still be mounted as usual

    2016-01-22_0002

     

    Alternatively, you can mount it by soldering it directly to the bottom of the header, thus leaving the header free to attach other boards as shown below:

    2016-01-22_0013a

    2016-01-22_0012a

     

    Contents

    So what do you get in the package?

    • Ready assembled PZM shim
    • 3 x screw terminals
    • 3x2 Male header
    • 3x2 Female header

    pzm_kit01

     

    Programming?

    This is a 4 pin driven, dual H Bridge. 2 pins control Motor A and 2 pins control Motor B

    • Motor A is physical pins 35 and 36 (Broadcom GPIO 16 and 19)
    • Motor B is physical pins 37 and 38 (Broadcom GPIO 26 and 20)
    • For each motor:
      • One pin High and the other Low for Forward
      • One pin Low and the other High for Reverse
      • Both pins Low will stop driving the motor and allow it to slowly coast to a halt
      • Both pins High will brake the motor and bring it to a halt very quickly
    • The pzm.py library module provides basic functions for forward, reverse, spin left, spin right, turn left/right forward, turn left/right reverse
    • Download library and examples from here

     

    Wiring?

    • Put power 3V to 11V on the terminal marked VIN and GND. If you are using low power motors you can use the 5V from the Pi (note this isn't connected to the PZM board)
    • Reverse polarity protection is provided so you won't break it by putting them on the wrong way round, but it won't work until you get it right!
    • Connect one motor to Motor A and the other to Motor B
    • Done!

  • MeArm - The Robot Arm taking the world by storm (MEARM)
    The MeArm is a fantastic, low-cost and easy to build robotic arm with a natty little gripper. It comes complete with all the fixings and 4 servos you need to assemble it.

    All the files for the MeArm are open-source so if you fancy building one for as little money as possible, please give it a go.


    The latest version is a stable base model and that's what you see here today. It ships with all the acrylic parts you'll need as well as all of the fixings and four hobby servos.

    The most recent instructions for the #meArm are available as a pdf and at instructables.com

    Our basic testing has involved driving the servos straight from an Arduino, using a simple shield and four 10k Ohm potentiometers. The code for that can be found in the MeArm Github

    Software exists for the Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone Black and Espruino, as the MeArm community is amazing!
