Well, that's a pretty ambitions project, but a lot of progress is being made in that area and the newer single board computers are making it easier to implement some of the software algorithms and making it more readily available as well. 

Good luck 🙂

Hi,

   I began with the basics about 5 years age. I purchased a 30 watt solar panel and mounted it on a small greenhouse, a Morningstar 12V charge controller, a Deka 12 V battery, Breaker box and associated wiring. I have since added a second Deka battery (8G27-Gelled Electrolyte) and a Kisae inverter.  I have modest goals such as charging cell phones and laptops. I did build a 500 ma DC power distribution system for LED lighting. It's really pretty small scale. As a cautionary note, it's a good idea to have a solar technician or electrician sign off on the wiring before bringing into your house.

Hi Robert,

   I look forward to chatting with you.  I have been working on Arduino projects which are modified C++. Are you working with that?

Dan in Wyoming here. Fair amount of experience with microcontrollers: STM boards using FreeRTOS, Atmel ATMega128 using C, Xilinx using VHDL and recently the Raspberry Pi using MQTT. I thought this forum was just for drones. A lot of good info here. I really want to learn KiCad so I can send out for my own board designs instead of wire-wrapping.

@sunbelt57 G'day Dan, 

Wyoming is where all the dinosaurs are (were) ? I have seen some photos and doccos and it looks wonderful - reminds me of outback Australia.

I did a course on KCad about a year ago - Udemy IIRC ? It is pretty easy and took a cuppla days. I never got a board outsourced but have no reason to believe there would have been a problem.  I seem to remember the libraries were missing some of the components I wanted which meant having to generate patterns from the spec sheets. That likely will have changed by now. There are probably cheats - like taking an existing pattern and re pinning something with the same package.

I will likely revisit KCad myself soon as i am starting to get really sick of fiddly messy perfboard lashups.  Even if the wastage is high (ish) the cost of getting the boards made is negligable and if you are happy with a prototype and make even a handful of units, the payoff in terms of professionalism of finish and hassle minimization and time saving will be well worth it.

Take it easy Mate!

Hello Everyone, 

My name is Jeremy, I am new to the group, but have been playing with Arduino for several years now. 

I am a chemical engineer by trade, and work full time in materials development.  Farmer by night on a small hobby farm my wife and I have been trying to build the past few years.  I use microprocessors in both applications, more on the farm that my day job, but that doesn't make it any less exciting.

Hello Jeremy,

Sounds like you have a challenging and interesting career. Done anything worth posting on the forum's Project Corner? What sort of farm? I used to work on the family citrus property. It would have been nice to retire on a hobby farm but it was not to be.

Cool...

What exactly does a chemical engineer invent or do?
I have no idea!

Cheers.

Hello to All DroneBot engineers,

As a new member I'd like to introduce myself here.

My name is Alex, a 70 year young and retired RF-electronics engineer @ the Dutch Philips/ NXP company, 

As you will understand, I am living in the Netherlands, 

I am still interested in new RF products for using it in my DIY- drone applications.

more details will be known in future forum questions and replies.

Thanks to Bill and all of you for acceptance here,

Alex

Hi everyone,

My name is David, and I'm from Northern Tasmania in Australia.

I have just got into the Ardunio system have just started to design a project for the signal system for my miniature (7 1/4) railway.

I have basic knowledge and sometimes need to be 'guided to the right path,' which might be fundamental to other people.
