Rolling

As some of you may remember I posted a robot last year for the AFRIKABOT competition. This is the entry for 2017.

Usb to serial is onboard. There is also an adittional microcontroller to serve as a servo controller.

Eight of the IO gets taken out to a header next to a prototyping...

So this is my first real Arduino robot project. I resisted using the Arduino for some time other than using it as a signal source back to a PC from a sensor. One morning I woke up and just decided I am going to give this a try and see what it is all about. The only thing I can say about it is, I...

Hi

Just a small post on a gap cross robot we had to build for a competition at our hackerspace:

I used a PICAXE 08M2 as the brain. I wanted to use a bigger chip like the 14M2 with a lot of sensors to let the robot detect the edges of the gap and count the number of turns on the...

I designed this robot control board for my students to be used as a basis for an entry into a robotics competition hosted by a university near us. It is shown on a Magician Chasis that I used as a test platform.

People ask me, "What will the robot do? What is your goal when it's done?" I usually answer, "Hopefully some day it can get me a Virgils Root Beer from the fridge" But in reality, what the robot is for, has already been achieved, and it should and will never be complete. This is an engineering,...

Ever wanted a robot that could do small tasks for you. Well Evo is my project in works. One day we will not not be able to do certain things as age creeps up on us all. My thought is to create a Bot that can one day help us with those things, Currently Evo uses a Windows 8 tablet for a brain and...
