Arduino Neural Network + Python Upgrade
PARTS! (these are amazon affiliate links so it supports the channel when you buy, thank you!):
Arduino nano (microcontroller) https://amzn.to/2EcQ29U
MPU6050 (motion processor) https://amzn.to/2TW1FaQ
PCA9685 16 channel Servo Controller https://amzn.to/2GMBAau
SG90 Servos (this is a pack of 10, you only need 8) https://amzn.to/2TZawbq
Monoprice maker select v2 (3d printer used to make the parts) https://amzn.to/2TMFkMC
Hatchbox 1.75 mm yellow PLA filament (plastic that’s melted into the parts) https://amzn.to/2Edu8TR
PCB (circuit boards to build out the circuit) https://amzn.to/2X2kATj
PCB headers (that way you can plug in your arduino nano and mpu6050 and also remove them easily to add to other projects) https://amzn.to/2Ed66bu
Ethernet Cable (I cut into it and get 50 feet of 8 strands of insulated ~30 gauge wire, pro tip! Opposed to the same price for 33 feet of 5 strands) https://amzn.to/2Gu5514
We have an editor joining us in our workspace and he took some beauty shots of the robot’s first movements, thought I’d share!
I’ve created an IPython notebook that lets me send joint positions and receive accelerometer and gyroscope motion from the robot. One step closer to utilizing some reinforcement learning algorithms to make the bot balance, run and turn 🙂
Thanks for watching!
