A Digital Compass On An ARobot

Posted January 1, 2013 by Chris

“A compass can be a valuable sensor that your robot can use to navigate the world. The Dinsmore 1490 compass is a cheap and durable unit that is relatively easy to interface to. It provides 8 headings (N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, and NW). 4 signals, N,S,E,W are read by the Basic Stamp II controller to determine the robot’s heading.”
