  • SparkFun should look at investing in an RTK base permanently located at your facility with a transmit only 2.4Ghz radio signal. AVC competitor could invest in a single frequency L1 RTK system and receiving radio. L1 typically takes a few minutes to reach Fixed Mode but once it’s there, participants will have cm level accuracy all around the track. Hemisphere GPS probably has the least expensive single frequency RTK system on the market and there are some Chinese knock offs that are fairly reasonably priced. If the base is Hemisphere, for example, then the rovers would all have to be Hemisphere too. There is the CMR correction string that can be transmitted that from most any Base and that can be received as a correction string by many branded receivers out there.

    I was quoted $150 for the P102. Probably $150 for a decent antenna.

  • Dr Jekyll, Mr Hyde, we never know who is going to show up from day to day… Thus the dual monitors!

  • The instructions make it sound like you need to connect to those 3 shortcuts and install those 3 things from those sites and then to the Board Manager step. You need to make it clearer that you just need to do the Board Manager step….

    First, you’ll need to install a variety of tools, including low-level ARM Cortex libraries full of generic code, arm-gcc to compile your code, and bossa to upload over the bootloader. These tools can be downloaded and installed alongside Arduino’s board definitions for the Arduino Zero.

    To install the Arduino Zero board definitions, navigate to your board manager (Tools > Board > Boards Manager…), then find an entry for Arduino SAMD Boards (32-bits ARM Cortex-M0+). Select it, and install the latest version – 1.6.2.

  • Thanks for the “Heads Up” on Bob Pease! I really liked his articles and I grabbed the E-Book.

  • Only YOU can prevent engineers from playing with fire…

  • HE is the Borg….

  • I didn’t see the H.O.V.E.R. board on the list :(

  • I have the SD card connected with pin 9 as the chip select. Sam won’t initialize the card. All I did was pop out the pro mini 3.3v and popped this in the board. Code compiles and downloads but won’t initialize card. The pro mini had no issues with the SD on my board.

  • This contest is just TOO funny! I love all the pictures!

No public wish lists :(
