We can see into space using telescopes and launch satellites that have cameras, telescopes and other sensing equipment onboard. These instruments are vital in the quest to explore the universe, they are remotely operated or autonomous machines in terms of energy, until their useful working life is over. They cannot explore or sample the surface of planets.

 

 

PLANETARY ROVERS

 

Where traditional surface rovers have wheels or tracks that have limited ability to overcome rough terrain, we are proposing using vehicles that walk with legs.

 

 

 

PIR passive infrared motion sensor 

 

PHOTODIODE SENSORS - Inside your domestic security light you will find these components. We will use the basic idea to make Dino the DinoBot react to guests, but passively. Using these circuits, Dino will be aware of people approaching - and be able to greet them. If the person comes close and speaks to Dino, then Dino will be able to respond audibly, and move its head, or even walk to track the person.

 

 

VERSATILE

 

Almost anything was possible using electronic sensors and controls ....... and then computers came along and the digital age, to turbo-charge electronics with programs to run machines.

SOLAR PANEL CHARGE REGULATORS & DC to DC CONVERTERS - The above is a selection of electronic controllers that will ensure your battery is charged correctly by your solar panels. The lower right is a DC to DC converter to boost voltage should that be needed.
