Make your next project more colorful with our new red, white, blue, and yellow breakaway male header strips. You can use them to add some personal flair to an otherwise boring PCB, or you can use them to color-code connections, like on this custom-assembled 24-channel Mini Maestro:

I recently competed in the LVbots line following robot challenge, where I took third place with the fourth fastest robot (due to lucky placement in the bracket). This was my second line following competition. I learned some valuable lessons from my first competition, such as bigger motors are not always good for going faster, so I focused my build on making a lightweight robot this time.

Advancer Technologies has launched a Kickstarter campaign for their MyoWare muscle sensor. Like its predecessor, the Muscle Sensor v3 (which we started carrying last year), the 4th-generation MyoWare is designed to measure the electrical activity of a muscle and output an analog signal that indicates how hard the muscle is being flexed. It will feature a number of improvements compared to the older sensor, including single-supply operation (no n...

For the recent LVBots line following competition, my first instinct was to try to come up with some unique alternative design for a robot that would be competitive with the traditional differential drive robots. However, I knew the winning robot from the last LVBots line following competition (Mostly Red Racer) would be returning, and it had an impressive time to beat. I also remembered spending so much time designing and assembling the hardwar...

Several people here made robots to compete in the recent LVBots line following competition. The goal of the competition is to make an autonomous robot that follows a line on the ground as fast as possible. I made a robot called LearnBot for the competition. LearnBot is able to learn the line course on the first lap and then use that information to its advantage on the second and third laps.

This new board is a Pololu carrier for ON Semiconductor’s AMIS-30543 Micro-Stepping Motor Driver, which is a high-performance stepper motor driver with advanced features not found on our other stepper motor driver carriers.

A few weeks ago the local robotics club, LVBots, hosted a line following competition here at Pololu, and like many of the engineers here, I built a robot, which I named Oddish, for the competition. I really only started seriously working on my robot about a week before the competition, so when I made the final decisions about what components to use I aimed for simplicity. In the last year we have come out with several A-Star microcontroller boa...

Like other developers and engineers here, I made a robot for the LVBots Line Following Contest. This post describes my robot, Usain Volt 2.0, and details some of what I was thinking when I designed it. If you want to know more about the competition rules and how it was judged, see the LVBots line following rules.

Great product selection and fast service. I ordered online Monday night, the package was shipped Tuesday morning, and I received it Wednesday afternoon. This company will definitely be my go-to for wires and connectors from now on.

Be sure to check out their Return Policy before ordering anything. They do not accept returns for Customer Dissatisfaction. If you open the package to check out your merchandise, you cannot return it for any reason (even if it's unused, unassembled, or undamaged). Makes you wonder why anyone would place an order, receive it, not open it, and send it back for a refund and substantial restocking fee. Gives a new perspective on 'Customer Service' for me. Also makes you wonder why their statement of "Due to the nature of our Business" precludes them from providing the same level of Customer Service on Returns, as the hundreds of other on-line vendors will do.

I have not visited, but I did place an order for several small items that are very expensive at the local hardware stores (nylon spacers) and a acrylic robot base. I have to say I had no issues with the ordering process, delivery or items received. I was puzzled by the constant reference to the fact that my order might be delayed due to international postal problems...I live in Kansas USA and they are in Vegas USA. Never mind, all the items I ordered were fine and they arrived quickly. No problems and I will be ordering again from them soon.
