FEZ Ultimate Kit

This is a great product for .Net Micro framework developers.


GHI also provides a complete and free project ebook  for the kit.

Already own a FEZ Panda or FEZ Domino? Or want to use the internet with Arduino or its derivatives?
Consider the FEZ Internet of Things Kit.

The FEZ Ultimate Kit Includes:
 This is a library provided by the community to add controls to FEZ Touch (watch the video)

Mubi's Rover With Live Video Streaming...

A Rover project with Live streaming from on board camera and controlled from Tahoe-II board. Commands can be sent from Tahoe-II board (hosting a .net application) to I-BOX Microcontroller using XBEE and same medium is used for I-BOX to stream video from onboard camera to Tahoe-II built-in LCD module.

Rover will be equiped with onboard...

1. Infrared distnace sensor
2. Two surfacce color detector
3. Touch sensor
4. VGA Camera
5. X-BEE Module
6. Light detector

Host applicaiton to control and monitor the mission is developed using...

1. VS.Net 2008
2. .Net Microframework 3.0
Tahoe-II is connected via USB to deploy application on to the board. Board has touch screen which make application very intteractive. Latter it can communicate wirlessly with controlle using X-Bee.

I hope this technology will be mature enough in next couple of years. Then we will be able to take part in Google's Lunar Lander Challenge :).

AD-150 high-speed VTOL unmanned aerial vehicle

The AD-150 is a high-speed VTOL unmanned aerial vehicle that is being developed by American Dynamics Flight Systems as a future competitor for the United States Marine Corps' Tier III VUAS program as well as other current and future United States VTOL UAV programs.

The AD-150 program began in response to continued interest in maritime capable VTOL UAVs by the United States Department of Defense.
The AD-150 utilizes two wing-tip mounted High Torque Aerial Lift (HTAL) lift and propulsion systems to provide the thrust needed to sustain and transition between hover and forward flight. The two HTAL systems are driven by a single Pratt & Whitney Canada PW200 Turboshaft engine.
The vehicle's propulsion configuration is similar to the Doak VZ-4 in that the 2 propulsion systems are able to tilt from vertical to horizontal mode in order to achieve high-speed forward flight. Unlike the Doak VZ-4, however, the propulsion systems in the AD-150 are also able to pivot longitudinally.

A full-scale model of the AD-150 was displayed for the first time at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International's (AUVSI) Unmanned Systems North America exhibition in Washington D.C. on August 7, 2007.

General characteristics
Crew: None
Length: 14 ft 6 in (4.42 m)
Wingspan: 17 ft 6 in (5.34 m)
Height: 4 ft 9 in (1.49 m)
Gross weight: 2,250 lb (1,020 kg)
Powerplant: 1 × Pratt & Whitney Canada PW200, 750 hp (560 kW)
Maximum speed: 345 mph (556 km/h)
Endurance: 4 hours
Service ceiling: 20,000 ft (6,100 m)

Programming i-Box III

iBox III Programmed to Never Fall From Table and Stay Away From Walls...

All you need is

2x IR Reflectors
1x Distance Sensor
2x DC Motors1x iBox III Microcontroller

This is very simple program following commands will do this all.

to alert

to start
wait 100
ab, setpower 8

loop [ if (( sensor 0) > 300
and ((sensor 1) > 300 ))
[ ab, thisway ab, on ]

if ((sensor 2) > 300)
ab, thatway ab, onfor 150
a, thisway a, onfor 50
a, thatway
ab, on]

if ((sensor 0) <>
ab, thatway ab, onfor 150
a, thisway a, onfor 50
a, thatway
ab, on]

if ((sensor 1) <>
ab, thatway ab, onfor 150
b, thisway b, onfor 50
b, thatway
ab, on] ]

if ((sensor 3) > 850)
ab, thatway ab, onfor 150
a, thisway a, onfor 50
a, thatway
ab, on]

Please note this programme will handle both 1)Never fall from table 2) Never collide with Walls.
You can add further funcaitonlity in this program for example add a light sensor and then you can program to start moving is light is on and stop when light is off, things like this.
