I build Robots. And you?

1.- Un robot no debe dañar a un ser humano o, por su inacción,

dejar que un ser humano sufra daño.


2.- Un robot debe obedecer las órdenes que le son dadas por un

ser humano, excepto si estas órdenes entran en conflicto con

la Primera Ley.


3.- Un robot debe proteger su propia existencia, hasta donde esta

protección no entre en conflicto con la Primera o la Segunda Ley.

Leyes de la Robótica, por Isaac Asimov

Cybertech 2018


Our national contest and subject for Universidad Politécnica students. As a subject, you will learn how to build your own robot and you will learn about control and electronics. As a contest, you will duel your partners to demonstrate you are the best robot builder. »


A robotic competition open to groups of students from universities all around the World, in which a bullfighter robot has to deal in the arena against a bull robot provided by the organization. The bullfighter robot must show its bullfighting skills making use of a red "capote" (cape). The robot that stays more time in the arena without being injured and makes a better bullfight will win. »

DC / DC Switching Regulator - Boost (Step-Up) Converter

The TPS61030EVM-029 is an evaluation tool for the TPS61030 inductive step-up converter in QFN-16 package which can supply voltages up to 5.5V from a 1.8-V to 5.5-V input. The TPS61030EVM-029 uses a TPS61030 adjustable output step-up converter and the appropriate external components to provide a fixed 5-V output voltage. By replacing the feedback components other voltages can be generated. The EVM can also be used to evaluate other options of the TPS6103x family. Please follow the instructions in the User's Guide of the EVM.

The Morse Alphabet.

The Morse Code consists of groups of dots and dashes. Each group represents a letter or a number.                     (You can communicate utilizing the Morse Code:                  by Flashing a light, by Sound or by using a Flag).               The dots should be made as short as possible, and the dashes should be 3 times as long as the dots.                        [ Morse Alphabet ]

Improved Circuit for the replacement of the original circuit backlight of a bicycle

Thanks to Mr. Giorgos Lazaridis, I found online this curious circuit. I modified it, a little bit, designing it for the replacement of a backlight original circuit (www.infini.tw) (model INFINI APOLLO / I-409 ) for a bicycle.              Thanks for share!. »           Figure: Backlight original circuit of a bicycle.

EasyUSB! Do you want to have, in your embedded system, the possibility of read and write files of a computer in a fast and easy way?

The EasyUSB gives your microcontroller access to 2MB that can be seen as a pendrive in the most operating systems. Now your microcontroller can Read and Write files in a FAT16 file system. (file system that your computer can easily understand). It is really Easy! It opens a lot of opportunities on Robotics.  

Now, I think that: " A microcontroller can READ and WRITE very easily in a specific pendrive! "  Thanks Daniel Brondani! »

Torque Conversion and Equivalents

When you design a robot, it is really important to know the characteristics of your motors. Nowadays, I am working with the Stepper Motor SANYO DENKI 103H546-0440. But if you are building a line follower robot, be really carefull with this parameters. It is very difficult to find a DC Gearmotor with a good torque, good velocity, encoder and not extremely expensive. Think about it. You will remember me...
