    Difference Between L293D and L298N Motor Driver

    I got what looks like the L298N version. Seems ott for a a robot chassis but works fine.

    erco-laser range finder

    The hi2c is more bare bones in gcb than picaxe and it's like serial or spi...complicated. on the other hand graphic lcd is easy. Picaxe would be too slow. Can not wait to mount on a servo on a tank base from ebay. Nice to program a uno in basic...just change the #chip at the start to a big list...

    New stuff

    There are free pic basic compilers. google. All will be a new learning curve but picaxe is relatively complicated for basic and non standard in flashing or variables. All basics are different but some have things in tend to use the microchip pins for programming data/clock.

    'hi2cin 0x1E,(b3,b2) 'w2 = b3 'w2 = w2 * 256 'w2 = w2 | b2 Nice work it has been simplified. From a picaxe post by buzby I read 12 bytes from 0x14. The second is an error code,10 and 11 are distance. If the error was = or 6 it displayed distance. Anything else been done with this device please?

    VL53L0X Time of Flight sensor

    I'm now using 0x1e ...and 0x1f I suppose to read distance. Seems I was reading an array of 12 bytes from 0x14 before and using elements 11 and 12. Buzbys code I think. Gave lots of info.See above post. It's a nice unit and no c needed. I fancy trying it on a robot instead of ultrasonic.

    VL53L0X Time of Flight sensor

    thanks I had seen main: hi2cout 0x00,(0x01) ;and re-arm pause 200 ;read the range in mm from 0x1E hi2cin 0x1E,(b3,b2) w2 = b3 w2 = w2 * 256 w2 = w2 | b2 I posted a request to convert to gcb on their forum. I have a proton basic v53L0X program I could not convert and a few c programs I can not...

    This is the code translation and a picaxe user will recognise their code that it got translated from. ;vl53l0x converted from picaxe #chip 16F886,8 #option Explicit #define W_ADDRESS 0xEC #define R_ADDRESS 0xED #define VL53Dev 0x52 #define HI2C_BAUD_RATE 400 #define HI2C_DATA PORTC.5 #define...

    Tiny Collision Detector

    I got it working with picaxe code converted by mmotte on gcb forum. I submitted it. Converting picaxe to gcb is difficult for me. The idea was for a robot but the latency is a factor. Registers can be set to speed things or accuracy.

    VL53L0X Time of Flight sensor

    There was some talk about VL53L0X. I posted some picaxe code on gcb forum and a mmotte converted it.Cool. Did anyone get further? I find it difficult to convert picaxe to gcb. This vid is my version of picaxe VL53L0X code converted to gcb #chip mega328p, 16 #option Explicit #include <glcd.h>...

    Sloth Robot

    That's encourageing. Converting the adc read value back to micro seconds should be easy. The hardware side of making a walker is...the drill bit snapped and went through my thumb nail...I bought an A8 reprap i3 clone kit for £84 and will print the parts.

    erco-laser range finder

    Erco. I got one of these and got to make a driver. I'm on the case and will report. Sensing is 50 time a second which is a bit disappointing. I done this before. You end up learning c :(

    Picaxe 32 bitter

    spot the picaxe. The 28 pin dip socket is underneath the (40 pin chip) table in the image. :) interesting link but don't need on board debugger et al. I'm not bothered interfacing to microchip apart from using data sheets and chips...and fake pickit 2/3. don't need with bootloader. I should...

    Picaxe 32 bitter

    Obfuscated as posting images sometimes but 1 meg is kodak brownie. It's supposed to be vero with 28pin socket. The chips with more than 1k ram tend to be 28x2

    Good bye and thanks for the fish

    since september 2016 when I 1st got a picaxe it has been interesting and above all fun. my objective was an object avoiding robot v1,2,3,4 you know.then by erco aka eric a line follower but the vibes on the forum and trying new stuff that needs speed I'm gone. Have fun you guys with what is an...

    self balancing device

    After following Edmunds threads, I got a MPU-6050 3 axis sensor but haven't used it yet. There's plenty of examples of making a self balancing machine on the net, I didn't say robot because I wouldn't call a segway a robot and more people come here than the robot section anyway. Has anyone...

    Oled serial slelect

    Hi. I bought some 128x64 oleds and 1 has missing resistors to short and changes the display from serial to 1c2 but I can't seem to find info. I couldn't post camera images even though they were 700k jpeg so these are from a site which tantalisingly didn't explain it. Maybe some one here has used...

    Erco Sharp ir range finder

    Erco posted an equation to convert the sharp GP2Y0A21YK0F adc to cm. I don't do hard sums and to the power of a minus decimal number looks fun. Starter for 10, can anyone help me code this in...

    lcd code not doing what I want

    Hi guys. I've posted some oled code that I thought may be useful and thought a "scope for 08m2" would be nice as seems lots of people have trouble with getting a working example to start off with it's tedious so posted template code but for picaxe with 1K scratchpad. I got this code from a light...
