MyzharBot project

MyzharBot, the crawler robot
The crawler robot MyzharBot is powered by a Turnigy 5000mAh 4S 30C Lipo Pack battery. The battery is used to power both the motors than the logic units. The 12V voltage needed to power the NVidia Jetson TK1 are generated by a DC-DC converter. The DC-DC converter is necessary because the voltage of a 4S LiPo runs from 16.8V (Full Charge) to 12.8V (Warning Voltage). MyzharBot uses a DC-DC programmable by USB, usually used for automotive application.
