Can a BS1 talk to a continous rotation servo?
This being the boring end of Winter I am off on a predictably strange project. It was inspired by this article in Ars Technica from last month, "Autonomous battery-powered rail cars could steal shipments from truckers"
And the idea was to have the container shown in the photo be made up out of Lego and use ordinary Lego wheels to make up for the train trucks. Power would be supplied by those Lego compatible servos that were discussed on the Forum not too long ago, and of course I asked the same idea here
Nothing much happened with me then, because as all of us can imagine I ran out of steam as it were to move further along.
But picture this, the container made up of Lego houses a BS1 and its project board and power source for both itself and the servo. That rests on eight wheels. Poking out of the back and resting on the floor for example is that same Lego compatible servo from Brown Dog, and attached to it as an appropriate wheel. Which of course I am still looking for. When started it would continue rolling along until it meets the end of the travel space.
Again at the moment that's all being considered.
