  • Admiral Trackbar, winner of the Star Wars autonomous robot challenge!

    Admiral Trackbar is an autonomous robot that navigates using 3D printed treads, avoids detection by detecting infrared signals, and rescues Ewoks through servo powered arms. It was build by a team of four (Chuan Du, Forbes Choy, Vladimir Novakovic, and myself) as part of the course: ENPH 253, Introduction to Instrument Design. The objective of […]

  • IR Sensor Array

    In order to detect objects for the Engineering Physics robot competition, my team and I set out to create a new sensor array. The array circuit consists of the ADS7828 ADC (courtesy of Texas Instruments), eight IR LEDs and photo-transistors, and accompanying circuitry. The entire sensor array connects to an I2C bus through two parallel […]
