@greatguin: I would like to add a sonar sensor to my quadcopter. Can I buy one of these boards somewhere?

I don't think Duane is selling these -- but I've copied him on your comment -- send me your email (to max@clivemaxfield.com) and I'll forward thsi to Duane also

@Robotics Developer: I would love to understand how you are going to implement depth perception with the two Pixy Machines!

Me too (LOL)

Max, I would love to understand how you are going to implement depth perception with the two Pixy Machines!  That should be a cool programming project, I am wondering what vision libraries were you planning on using?  The attraction to the Kinect is the built in horsepower/processing for the depth reporting.  Sounds like a fun project for sure.

@Robotics Developer: It has nice sensor features (depth being one of the really nice ones) as well as vision.

I might have been tempted to this, but I've already got two of the Pixy Machine Vision things with pan-and-tilt bases, so I'm planning on using these to give me depth perception and stuff

@Robotics Developer: ...the areas of software, vision, mechanical and systems for robot designs keep me occupied learning and exploring new areas, a wonderful thing for an engineer at heart!

I agree -- one of the reasons for having hobby projects is that it's a great way to learn "stuff" -- for example, working on my my Inamorata Prognostication Engine is affording me the opertunity to learn all sorts of things, like how to calculate the dates of Full Moons and Blue Moons :-)

Max, consider (if you have the bandwidth and processing power) adding a Kinect to the robot.  It has nice sensor features (depth being one of the really nice ones) as well as vision.  Adding that to the platfrom could provide you with years of experimentation and exploration (pun intended).

@Max,

"That's a good idea -- thanks for sharing."

You are most welcome!  Any help that I can provide please contact me!  Robotics encompasses a diverse mix of disciplines and as such it provides an endless opportunity to learn and grow.  As a EE by degree the areas of software, vision, mechanical and systems for robot designs keep me occupied learning and exploring new areas, a wonderful thing for an engineer at heart!
