  • How are you going to accurately detect the line between cut and not cut grass? You have to follow that precisely and I don't know of a sensor that will do that. You also have to detect edges of the yard like where the grass and the driveway meet. Again, what sensor will do that?

  • EDIT: looked at the datasheet for the receiver and it uses pulsed light so I answered my own question. "Does this use pulsed light to discriminate against ambient light or is this sensitive to ambient light? Can it be used out in the sunlight?"

  • or the most part no. We have seen multiple sensors on the same device used in Hackathons and other projects without issue. What kind of configuration were you thinking of?

    How about an array of 3 of them on the front of a robot for obstacle detection?

  • What camera will work with the camera slot? How about the one for the Raspberry Pi?

  • My AHRC friends are saying the SATA pins on the chip on this board are not connected to anything and this was probably done to reduce board layers/size/cost. Oh well. Maybe next version? Would be great for video and other things that need storage volume and speed.

  • R-pi people are big on using a powered USB hub. That isn't an issue with pcDuino?

  • I see SATA on the schematic. Is it pinned out? Can I connect a hard drive to it? Can I boot from that drive? This would be huge.

  • I do get dropped bits now and then. Is that the issue with the old ones? Can I get a discount on a new set? :P

  • Can you read signal strength with this? If so I would like to try using a pair to get a bearing on the transmitter.

  • Can you read the signal strength out of these so you could use them to get a bearing on the transmitter?

No public wish lists :(
