EVShield Controlled Double-Leaf Bascule Railway Bridge

Double-Leaf Bascule Bridge
I have started work on another Bridge for my LEGO Railway layout, but this time I have built a Dual Track (Line), Double-Leaf Bascule Railway Bridge. This does mean I will need to build yet another baseboard to house it on, but I have received a large heap of LEGO Train Track, so all should be fine.

A Bascule Bridge (commonly referred to as a drawbridge) is a movable bridge with a counterweight that continuously balances a span, or “leaf”, throughout its upward swing to provide clearance for boat traffic. It may be single or double leafed.

BrickLink Order: #5339500

I’ve been occupied in the development of an EVShield Controlled Container Handling Crane. Thus far I have most of the Brick related Bugs ironed out, but have ran into the LEGO Engineer’s number issue: I need more Bricks.

OpenElectrons’ UI module for EVShield

UI Mon EVShield
OpenElectrons’ have released a UI module for EVShield. The module has a color display and a navigation switch. Use this UI module on your EVShield for easy user interaction with your Programs and Robot.

EVShield Holonomic Platform with LCD & Wii Nun-chuck

EVShield
A few days ago I received an EVShield from OpenElectrons (Mindsensors) to Beta test. The EVShield fits on top of an Arduino Microcontroller and operates in a similar manor to the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Programmable Brick. The EVShield allows you to connect the full range of LEGO Mindstorms EV3 & NXT, Sensors and Motors to an Arduino Uno Board.

EVShield: Arduino Shield for EV3 & NXT Motors & Sensors

OpenElectronsOpenElectrons.com have a new Arduino Shield being readied for release in the near future. You can use it to make Robots with ‘Arduino Brains‘, using either LEGO Mindstorms EV3 or NXT Motors, Sensors, and other Arduino compatible parts. If you wish, you can also attach a selection of available Arduino Shields on top of the EVShield.

NXShield: Arduino Powered LEGO Holonomic Platform

NXShield-Holonomic-Platform
I have just developed a LEGO Mindstorms Holonomic Platform Robot powered by an OpenElectrons NXShield for the Arduino Mega.

I have just had 4 day up at Burnie on Tasmania’s North-west coast at the “Brixhibition Burnie” with my Robots. Among the robots I took was a OpenElectrons NXShield Powered Holonomic Platform which survived the abuse from the general public who where controlling it for some 18hrs, without it missing a beat.
