Reverse Engineering the Syma S107G IR Protocol

I got a Syma S107G IR controlled helicopter for my son a while ago. This tiny remote control helicopter is a rather amazing toy. Not only its movement is very stable, but the rotor speed, forward backward movements and turning can be all proportionally controlled as well. I thought it might be interesting to take a look at its control protocol to see how things are done. And yes, I do have a video at the very end showing controlling the S107G using the reverse engineered remote control. Continue reading ‘Reverse Engineering the Syma S107G IR Protocol’ »

Building a Robotic Platform

I started this project a while ago. My intention was to adapt a toy remote controlled vehicle into a generic robotic platform, which would enable me to do some experiments with robotics. To make the platform more generic, I came up with the following requirements: Continue reading ‘Building a Robotic Platform’ »
