MuIn dsNav is a versatile board based on Microchip dsPIC33FJ motor controller family . Those DSCs, thanks to their unique features, are capable of driving two motors in a closed loop control through aid of two high resolution encoders and current sensing.

990.011 MuIN dsNAV can be used as a development board for new projects or as a full working navigation board with odometry, dead reckoning and field mapping , using the software available both as source code or HEX file. Muin dsNav is based on the open source project by Guido Ottaviani as an evolution of original award winning , dsPIC30F based, board:

More details about the theory on which dsNAV is based and an example on how to use this board as the hearth of an autonomous robotic platform, can be found at URL: and in articles published on Circuit Cellar Magazine #224 (March 2009), #225 (April 2009) and #236 (March 2010).
The board is equipped with one of the most powerful Microchip Digital Signal Controller, a plenty of operating RAM and flash program space: dsPIC33FJ128MC802 (but can be replaced with other compatible DSP).
