This web site has been built to detail amazing projects created by the author using common controllers, software, electronic devices and components available on the market. Very often reproduce the reality or really "build" ideas can teach you how to better work with all standard market components and maximise the profitability of appliances available. and, why not, .... it is also funny!!
The project ArduRobot starts from the idea to build an auto-balanced robot able to move a person from place to place. The first version was able to auto balance itself and, thanks to two 250W motors was able to move a person on a mobile platform built using the base of a cart used to move manually big objects. Thanks to different changes, it evolved to a Transport Robot useful for day-by-day move activities or just for fun in order to learn how to work with micro-controllers. This site has been built in order to let everyone know the evolution, all functionality and, perhaps, to find someone interested in evolving it and to build functionalities currently not available (mechanic and electronic).
The idea is to create an environment with all the components needed to flight a real boing 737 - 500 (unfortunately I have not enough space to reproduce a real replica). It is connected with Xplane flight simulator (It was MSX before), 3 Desktop computers and different arduino modules to drive any flight cabin component.
It is a home made 3d Printer built following Kossel schemas. It uses an Arduino 2560 board to drive stepper motors, extruder and the rest of electronic needed.
This is a list of accessories built using a standard 3d Printer in order to increase functionalities of a standard garden Gazebo
It is a set of services developed to be used by IoT devices with a simple protocol using mini logics able to be composed in more complex professional services
It is a sperimental box including different arduino sensor able to determine properly the position in the space of the user who is working with the box. It has also a sonic sensor able to determine the distance from a fixed point (usually the wall or any other forniture)
It's a special expansion for an existing curtain of a Boat. Dimensioning pipes you can obtain a structure for any kind of boat
In this page you will find a collection of 3d objects designed and printed by the author. Those objects have been used for different pourposes described in the articles
This printer is the evolution of the Printerina 3d Printer. Completelly built by the previous version it has been completelly re-designed. The scope is to obtain a delta printer portable, light and chip but with great performances and results
This section contains all libraries developed by the author to support any kind of development during those years (work in progress ...)
How the 3d Printing process works
Mobile power activator is an indipendent unit powered 220V with a set of power plugs and a GPS_Mobile controller. It allow you to activate and deactivate plugs using sms messages and to validate the GPS coordinates of the module itself
It is an engine where the hot source is external. This against standard engines where the hot source is internally generated by the gasoline explosion
It's an Aquarium made of wood and resin that can be installed vertically in a small space exactly like a book container or like a shoe rack. Mechanic and electronic equipment are hidden in a closed space and a refined cover allows the access to the fish box and lamps
It's a test device built to verify functionalities of the IoT Miniservices environment. It sends a temperature and Humidity integer value every 5 mins to the central infrastructure This value is then saved into buonevacanze.org environment ready to be manipulated or retrieved at a later stage.
It is a prototype of an heart rate monitor. Based on the MAX30102 sensor it is able to monitor heart rate and blood oxygenation interfacing results with the IoT miniservice infrastructure provided by Buonevacanze.org
