Here are a little bit more details about the missile launcher robot project.

  1. Free Image Hosting at allyoucanupload.com I purchased this microprocessor module from Sparkfun last year. It is MSP430FG4619LCD made by Olimex. It has a Nokia 6610 LCD, accelerometer, serial flash, joystick and a couple of buttons.
  2. Free Image Hosting at allyoucanupload.com For the crawler base, it is actually a modified version of the remote control robot construction set from Tamiya. It includes the two motors.
  3. The PIR sensor was given by my colleague from UNSW. He purchased few of them from Digikey ang it was not cheap. This one produces an analog output if human movement is detected. It is normally used in home security system or automatic lightning system.
  4. Free Image Hosting at allyoucanupload.com This is a non-USB missile launcher that I purchased from Jaycar last Christmas period. That time it was around $15 Australian dollar. Internally, it has three motors. One for rotating the launcher left and right, one for rotating up and down and one for releasing the spring to launch the missile.
  5. Motor DriverThe motor controller was SN754410 H Bridge Motor Driver by TI. It was actually much better (performance and efficiency) than my own H-bridge that I constructed using few MOSFETs before I used this chip.

Below is the final product. There are still lots more work currently being done including making a new robot as the target to be chased and to be shotted. 🙂

Don’t forget to give some feedback, suggestion or comments. Cheers!
