The aim of Roboya is to bring the robot technology complexity to the playground of hobbyists. We will try to provide as much information as possible, and make efforts to give intuitive explanations that don't require more prior scientific knowledge than a high-school science class.
As these pages might be read by students, we will make efforts to use the cheapest systems available. For instance a board called LaunchPad, made by Texas Instruments, and sold for a very cheap price, about 12 Euros, yet having a fairly high processing power.
We have scheduled several kinds of online courses. But rather than bragging of what will exist, let's talk first about what does exist.
Embedded C language tutorials
You probably have an idea of what programming is, especially on a desktop machine. What is embedded programming? It's essentially similar as programming but on smaller systems. Most of what exist around us is programmable, be it your fridge, your washing mashine, your TV or microwave. These tutorials focus on that kind of programming, programming that make links between sensors and actuators. We start from the simplest possible programs (lighting an LED) and then move from LED blinking to other more enhanced programs.
The first set of programs, about 12 of them, should allow you to control small systems. For example spinning a motor at a given speed, or move to a given position.
