Slide.

Presentation.

Featured project in Fab 16 yeayyeee skip to 3:15:10

Introduction

Its a multi functional number representing tool .This uses 4 vertical slides that contain the numbers. Four stepper motors position the slides .and i like to add more functionality to it (thinking).


Electronics Design

I started with electronics since i have less experience in it .used Esp32 Neil's basic board and coupled with a4988  stepper driver pin out. the main out from micro controller was Step and direction to stepper driver.I used Autodesk Eagle To design the Schematic and Board.

Mobirise

Idealization,Learning how to use Regulates

Schematic

Mobirise

Routed Board

Mobirise

Milled.

Mobirise

Stuffed Basic components and tested by connecting to wi fi and all

3D design  of Silde and Rack

he rack and pinion system was derived from this linear motion device made by Trigubovich on Thingiverse. I used B rep Functionary;ty to convert .stl to step file.Messy but useful

Mobirise

Rack also scale down to get exact modules for the gear

Mobirise

Modified For clamming stepper motor

Mobirise

3D printed rack and Pinion 

Mobirise

Unipolar Stepper Motor Step 7 Volt DC-350 mA 7.5 Step Angle 680 G-CM

Tested if Slides are working using Developed board.

Mobirise

Then designed 4 slides to fit in the stepper motors and slide.

Mobirise

Designed casing(electronics and  stepper motors) and clamps to hold the Front part.

Mobirise

Female side and case assembled.

Casing 3d printed

I used 37mm as length as one rotation is 48 steps and calculating module and radius of pinion 37mm it travels which means 1  complete rotation changes to next number.

Laser Cut and engraved numbers randomly

I used buck converter to drive motors (7v 1.5amps) 

Programing

So my data flow is connected to internet
This must do
1. connect to wi fi
2.get time from ntp server
3.Ask fire base for number to display

I will be using accylstepper Library for moving my stepper motors synchronously. Most of work Already done in interfacing week.link

Final Form.Itssss Workinggg

Project 2(Not yet named)

I used to update Tech by seeing MKBHD videos on YouTube. 2 months back he rewed Boston dynamics robot dog video and the stunning engineering of the art.I always wanted to make one of that and test it out and for an Indian average human its too costly.And later on April 1(April Fool) he reviewed his dog Mac and i connected that nature have its cheaper option and i wanted to control it.

Check List What my Dog Already Have.(Intersection Dynamics Robot Dog)

1.They're pretty sturdy and well built
2.There's dual monochrome sensors with autofocus assist(Eyes)
3. Middle sensor that the  same way that laser autofocus does meaning it just helps the main sensors.(Nose)
4.here's a pair of microphones one on either side for audio processing(Ears) for voice commands so all these sensors          put  together  to navigate surroundings and not bump into things that moves around.
5.One you need to charge by the end of the day(Fooddd)
6.Built-in auto docking feature where it automatically returns to the charging pad(Bed) when the battery gets low and the sensors turn off the software Shut Down to (sleep).
7.Works so it's programmed to identify.
8.Voice controls.

Things were my Dog Excels.

1.One of one colorway which is it's kind of this unique thing.(Limited Edition).Every unit sold is a unique colorway
    lot of them look like pretty similar but there was lots of small details on each unit that would be just a little bit.
2.Its development for a couple years now through several software updates.(It already know the world better).
3.First get them they actually have way less features and then you sort of get to evolve them over time. 
4.Best friend security guard features.
5.Water proof.
6.Huge slider(Tail) on the back acts as a digital well-being indicator so basically the faster it's moving
    the happier the Dog is.

So what is the Add-on.

Sometimes the sensors will lock on to one thing(Food) and then throw off the whole rest of the autofocus system sometimes if you give it the wrong type of energy too many times the ai learns and it basically prioritizes all those false positives.
Taking this vulnerability the make the dog walk through the desired path.

Mobirise

Basically Automate this process to navigate through envirnment.
