How to make a computer controlled Robot Project Using PIC16F877A? using pic microcontoller

After a short break, we’re back to the DIY robot projects series and I am sure you’ll love this one too. Before that I suggest you to go through all our earlier simple robotics projects for engineering students as well. This time, major difference is the added security to access the robot; you can control the robot only after you speak your password. The robot can move in four directions and can be controll ...

Knight Rider Light computer – version 2

This knight rider light computer is a successor of my first version of the Knight Rider. This version is much smaller and justifies the use of a microcontroller. The project is based on the PIC 12F629 microcontroller. The hardware part Unlike my previous project this light computer is build around the PIC12F629: a microcontroller with only 8 pins. It is shipped in a DIL-8 housing. An external clock is not n ...

Serial Data Transfer to PC(Personal Computer) using PIC16f877 Microcontroller USART

Here is a simple project on How to transmit serial data to pc using built in usart(universal Syncronous-Asyncronous receiver transmitter)of PIC 16f877 microcontroller. The data Transmitted by PIC microcontroller is received by computer through its (Serial)DB-9 Port and is displayed on Hyperterminal window. Since microcontrollers works on TTL  wave form and standard PC(Personal Computers) works on RS-232 wav ...

$15.00 BASIC Computer using PIC32MX1 microcontroller

$15.00 BASIC Computer? Imagine a microcontroller that you can connect a serial terminal up to to get an ok prompt? What would happen if you changed one of the control registers can I see the effect straight away? Is it really possible to download programs onto this chip from the Internet and run them? Can I create a program and have it run at reset? Do I only need a serial link and two capacitors to get the ...

Cloud computer powered by 2,000 GPUs

Three US companies are proposing to meet the growing data processing demands of cloud-based computing and online gaming by connecting up thousands of graphics processors in ‘supercomputers’. Graphics processor firm Nvidia is working with IDT and Orange Silicon Valley to develop a scalable, low-latency cluster of up to 2,000 Tegra K1 mobile processors. For connecting the processors, the system uses RapidIO i ...

Computer controlled infrared transmitter based on PIC

description This is a programmable infrared (remote control) transmitter, which can be controlled from a computer serial port. It is capable of sending many remote control formats, including the Philips RC-5 standard. Exact formats with the timing parameter names are shown on the pictures: operation The controller will accept commands on a serial port. Settings are: 19200 bps, 8 bits, no parity, 1 stopbit, ...

Computer Controlled Star

In this instructable I am going to show you how to build a Star with 64 LEDs. The Star operates by itself but the operation mode can be changed when connecting it to a computer via a serial (RS232) interface. After reconfiguring the Star via the computer, the Star will use the new operating mode as the new default. The Star can of course be used during the Christmas period but it can also be used as a night ...

The Zeta minimal Z80 toggle-switch computer

The Zeta is a minimal Z80 toggle-switch computer. It has a Zilog Z80 microprocessor, 256 bytes of RAM and the only interface is the front panel which directly sets and reads the address and data buses. There is a video of it executing Euclid's algorithm: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GmY_UrbXnA At the moment, there is only one real source file in this repository, an Inkscape-produced SVG which contains t ...
