XMotion Basics – XMotion 101

What is XMotion? XMotion is Arduino Compatible all in one robot controller. Which designed specially for  robotics, IOT and maker projects.It includes powerful Motor drivers, switching mode regulator, interface circuits and more. With protected features, it is all in one board for lots of different type robot projects. So in basic, we add sensors, battery, motors and all other blocks are inside XMotion board. With XMotion you can make these robots easily: Mini sumo Robot (500 grams 2- 4 motors) Midi sumo Robot (1 [...]

High Current Dc Motor Controller Project

For this year’s sumo robots, I have to design new better motor controllers. At first designs, I used big power mosfets, through hole components. With experience, I made better, concentrated PCB. I used this boards at my all sumo robots (Shadow, JSumo, Fusion2) It uses 4 Power MOSFETs and HIP4081A MOSFET driver. I fabricated only 20 pieces as prototype. I made 2 PCB in design. The bottom deck is power system (MOSFETs, MOSFET driver,s, regulators…). Motor Driver’s Bottom Layer, Bottom side. Upper Deck [...]

How to Make a Good Sumo Robot

How to Design & Make a Good Sumo Robot In this article, I will share my sumo robot design and build secrets. Firstly we are starting with sumo robot parts. Please click the bottom image for bigger visual, in that article I will go deeply at each section for sumo robots.  We can divide sumo robot to 3 subdivision: Mechanic System –  Structure Electronic System – Organs Software system – Robot’s spirit Firstly we starting mechanical System. The mechanical system covers motors, gearing, wheels and robot’s [...]
