SEGFAULT is an attempt at implementing in hardware principles visited by the control theory and feedback control courses I have taken. The goal is to create a rideable, self-balancing (Segway-like) vehicle whose controller is implemented in continuous-time using “linear time invariant” components and operational amplifiers. Successful completion of the project constitutes demonstrating a connection between the theoretical models presented in classwork and physical hardware with its nonlinearities and nonidealities. Also, custom Segway.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
