Video and build instruction of R7 are online.
The page with the build instruction of R7 including the video is online. I am still working on the software and I have also a couple of minor improvements of the hardware in mind, however even in the current stage the robot works fine.

R7 goes out for a test ride!
The control page of R7 is online and today is another test run. The rover is outdoor for the first time even while it is raining today here in Germany. Meanwhile I have 3D printed a cover for my latest robot so that the water falling from sky should not bring the explorer into trouble.

Today you can control my latest robot R7 on a special test page. It will become part of my RoboSpatium as soon as the battery sensor is implemented and the control interface got a redesign.

I visited RS Components
I was at the headquater of the German section of RS Components in Mörfelden-Walldorf. During the hours of my visit I was pushed into a universe called "Social Media" and that is more or less an onknown space to me. The video report from beyond that new frontier will follow by RS components as soon as all the raw material is edited by their social media experts. I am curious about the result.
The reason for my trip is a project made with parts from my sponsor that I am currently working on. It will be displayed at the SPS IPC Drives 2017 in Nürnberg, Germanyfrom November 28 to 30, 2017 at the stand of RS Components. I will be there and I am looking forward to talk with technicians and creators. Thursday is a special day for students.
Before driving home I could put a box of Raspberry Pis into the boot of my 2CV estate special edition and you know my slogan: A Raspberry a day keeps boredom away!
