Project Updates

New Revenue Sharing

Posted by ozirock on November 9, 2011 at 4:05 PM Comments comments (1)

Hey Guy's

I'm struggling to find time to add to the website so I've added a section for people to add projects. As an incentive you can enter some adsense code and hopefully generate a bit of revenue for yourself. You can find a discussion about this on the forum here. Or you can find the place to submit your projects here.



Parts Lists added to most projects

Hi ,

I'm just letting you know I've added a parts list to all the projects (I think) so you should have an idea of what you would need for each project. I have a few minor updates to make to some but I should get round to them at the weekend.




New Photos Section Added

Hello All,

I have added a new photos section to the website and members will be able to view all the pictures from projects that I have done or I'm working on.

Already you can find photos of the wiring of the RC car controller for connection to the Velleman K8055 usb interface board to help you complete your computer controller RC Car.

Hopefully this will be a useful addition to the site.

More great videos from our members have been added

Hello All,

There has been a number of new videos added to the videos section of the site.

Retrobrad has given us a number of examples of PIc microcontrollers being used to create small games and other PIC projects.

Pirobotproductions have given us a huge collection of robot vision examples and advanced robotics examples.

Some great stuff, hope you enjoy it.

Free downloads section for members

Posted by ozirock on January 31, 2010 at 9:20 AM Comments comments (0)

I'm planning on making a section specifically for members where they can download useful ebook guides to creating robots and other projects and also where they can download the programs for controlling their RC car without the need to create the form and compile it them selves. 

What do you think, would it help?

ebook: How to convert an old RC car into an autonomous robot

Posted by ozirock on January 26, 2010 at 10:24 AM Comments comments (0)

I've started working on a ebook that will describe how to convert an old RC car into an autonomous robot using the methods found on Ozirocks Projects. Hopefully it wont be too long and will cover all you need to know. So look out for that ebook coming soon.

New Addition's to the Videos

A couple of friends have allowed me to post some new videos to the site which show more of the types of projects which are possible for a beginner to do. These projects include demonstrations of sensors and demonstrations of fully operational robots. You can find all the videos here.




Monaghan Robotics Club

Posted by ozirock on January 22, 2010 at 5:59 PM Comments comments (5)

I've noticed that there is a Robotics Club up in Dublin and I was wondering if anyone in Monaghan was interested in having our own. If there was interest we could organize meeting's to discuss our projects and to try solve each others problems. We could have tutorials on creating different sensors and components. We could also organize competitions for line follower races, obstacle avoidance robots,anything we can think of really.


If you want some more information on creating a simple DIY Robot have a look at my site (http://ozirock.webs.com/), it's pretty bare at the minute but hopefully I'll get time over the next few weeks to update it with current progress. I have managed to create a line follower sensor and obstacle avoidance sensor successfully and I'm working on using a PIC microcontroller to be the brains of the robot so even though it's not posted on the site yet feel free to ask about it in the forum.


Let me know if anyone is interested either by posting here or on the forum and if we get enough interest I'll try to find somewhere to hold our meetings. The meeting would probably take place on a Saturday because I would be at uni in Dublin all week.


I look forward to hearing from you.
