DC motor selection for robotic applications

This post was mainly contributed by members of electrical team of ARES. For designing a rover prototype we have to select motors for applications like Robotic arm, wheels etc.  This post aims to be a single guide containing all the information required for someone to select a motor for his application. I’ll try not to cover motor constructional details, but rather their types, advantages and application areas.   Type of DC electric motors used in robotic :…

Introduction to RF communication

This post introduces the basics of RF communication along with various band specifications used for wireless communication. It also covers comparison of  different bands on basis of their data rates and other parameters. Content Introduction Available frequency Bands Types of RF communication Different wireless protocols Introduction Now a days, we are surrounded by a large number of wireless devices working on different protocols, on different frequency bands thus utilizing almost whole of the “Radio-wave” frequency spectrum. Adhering…
