Roboteq Announces Publication of WiFi Robot Design Program

Developer of motor controllers for mobile robotics, Roboteq has declared publication of its WiFi Robot Design program that features a AX3500 DC Motor Controller and an Intel Atom Processor for Mini ITX mainboard.

The robot is developed around an aluminum frame that measures 1 1/2 by 2 feet. It operates with the help of a battery. The video camera of the robot has Wi-Fi connectivity to view all activities on a PC. The robot can be operated remotely from anywhere through the internet.

The robotic platform enables users to reproduce it and include their own functionalities. Users can download a number of materials such as CAD drawings, wiring diagrams and mechanical drawings from Roboteq’s website.

The motor controller features two channel outputs, which control and power the robot. Users can alter the speed and direction of the motors. The controller is linked to the Intel Atom mainboard through the RS232 port. The controller’s outputs enable the robotic arm to be controlled easily.

The Intel D510M mainboard was chosen for its low power consumption and 100% passive cooling technology. It offers high-quality performance at reduced costs and is ideal for mobile robotic designs. The Windows 7 operating system, utilized by the motherboard, allows for flexible software development choices.
