Linkbot Modular Robotic Platform Kickstarter

Kickstarter:

Each robot has three buttons for user interface and a 3-axis accelerometer. The brain behind all these features is the ATmega128RFA1 by Atmel, running at 16MHz. It integrates an 8-bit AVR microcontroller with an 802.15.4-compliant and ZigBee-capable radio transceiver operating in the 2.4GHz band. Out of the box, it communicates at 250kbps over the air, but with custom firmware you can enable speeds of up to 2Mbps for an 8X increase in throughput.
 
  • Atmel AVR Microcontroller: Compatible with Arduino so you can re-flash with your own firmware using the on-board bootloader
  • ZigBee-Capable Radio: Communicate wirelessly with an 802.15.4-compliant radio, create mesh networks, control and monitor remotely
  • Multi-Color (RGB) LED: Select from a full spectrum of colors
  • 3-Axis Accelerometer: Detect free-falls, bumps, tilt angles
  • Buzzer: Play notes or complete tunes, give audio responses to inputs
  • RJ11 (6P4C) Expansion Connector: Use a standard phone cable to connect our Bluetooth/breakout boards or your own electronics to your Linkbot's power and I2C bus
  • 3x Buttons - Easily control Linkbot modes and functions or write custom functions for button presses
  • Micro-USB Connector: Connect to a computer or charger with a standard Micro-USB cable
  • Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery: Run your Linkbot for over 3 hours for most applications before having to charge
  • High Torque:Weight-ratio Motors: Light-but-strong motors produce up to 100oz-in of torque
  • Absolute Encoding: Precisely control and measure speeds and angles down to 0.5 degrees
  • BaroboLink Software: Graphical interface lets you run programs, actuate motors and read sensors on your computer
  • Polycarbonate Housing: Super-durable, drop-tested from second-story building (not recommended) so it can handle your demanding projects
  • SnapConnector Mounting Surfaces: Quickly connect and remove wheels, connecting plates, grabbers, even multiple Linkbots; or connect your own accessories with standard screws

Model TR1 Tru-Trac

Model TR1 Tru-Trac

The Model TR1 Tru-Trac® linear measurement solution is a versatile option for tracking velocity, position, or distance over a wide variety of surfaces. An integrated encoder, measuring wheel, and spring-loaded torsion arm in one, compact unit, the Model TR1 is easy to install. The spring-loaded torsion arm offers adjustable torsion load, allowing the Model TR1 to be mounted in almost any orientation - even upside-down. The threaded shaft on the pivot axis is field reversible, providing mounting access from either side. With operating speeds up to 3000 feet per minute, a wide variety of configuration options - including multiple wheel material options - and a housing made from a durable, conductive composite material that minimizes static buildup, the Model TR1 Tru-Trac® is the ideal solution for countless applications.
