Overview

The Robot Sensor Platform is a testbed for robot work at Artisan's Asylum. It eventually will do cool things.

  • Robot frame width is 31.75", with axles extending 4.25" out from the side.
  • Robot frame length is 39"
  • Robot frame has generally 4.5" of ground clearance, except near the side wheel mount points; bottom of wheel mounts are 1.5" from the floor.

Data for parts are in the Robotics_Intensive area, most specifically Electronics,_Power_Systems_&_Batteries.

System Details

Some RJ45 Wiring Conventions are in order.

Sensors And Actuators

We have a variety of sensors and actuators that will be mounted on this system. A list of what we may be installing:

Sensors

  • Various limit switches
  • Ultrasonic distance measurement sensor
  • UHG-08LX (laser rangefinder)

Actuators
