A quick guide to the various projects that I’ve been involved in since late 2006:
- Student Robotics. I founded this organisation along with Steve and Howard in 2006 (see episode 1), and was president of the organisation for a year. A lot of my work goes into this, and I’ve published a small amount of it here (reviewing it like this makes me realise that I need to blog about it more!):
- I2C bootloader for MSP430s.
- Construction of a prototype ball launcher
- Formica: a scalable (cheap) swarm robotics project. Firmware released as open source, and hardware designs are open too.
- univ430 JTAG adapter, with an open hardware design.
- Construction of an CNC X-Y table, with MSP430 based stepper controllers.
- iomon: a tool for logging access to a file.
- I do a fair amount of MSP430 hacking. I use the mspgcc tool chain — and I often publish the fixes and tricks that I develop here on my blog:
- Building a shed
- I’ve been hacking in Iceland on a glacier.
- I’ve written a very basic interface to mythtv, called “MythFace”. Still used in this house.
- I once wrote a plugin for yum to use avahi to find local package repository mirrors.
