Data Bus Baseboard on Tindie

Data Bus mbed baseboards are now available on Tindie as a fundraiser!

Now you can build your own autonomous rover! This board is the fifth revision of the board that's been powering my AVC-podium-placing rover, Data Bus, the last few years.

If you want to experiment with your own algorithms on a powerful 96MHz ARM processor and want a head start on building their 2014 AVC ground vehicle entry, well, here you go!

  • Three UART ports, one 3.3V, two 5V, series resistor protection
  • Five I2C ports, all 3.3V
  • ESC and steering Servo connector
  • Dual wheel encoder port
  • Onboard 5V regulator powered by ESC 6V BEC powers 5V UARTs
  • Separate mbed supply rail to keep noise out of your GPS.
  • Filtering / bypass caps

Just get an mbed, load it up with my code, add an L3G4200D gyro, Venus or uBlox GPS, wheel encoders.
