How to build an Arduino Robocar Part 1

I've been meaning to put some content on here for a while and recently I got around to getting an Uno and motor shield. Given I also have access to a 3d printer and have a shedload of microswitches, semis and other goodies knocking around - Robocar is an obvious choice! I've had a few Arduino's in the past but have always used them as an ISP to write to AVR instead of just embracing the Arduino eco-system. ...

Computer Controlled Robot using Arduino

After designing this line follower robot using arduino uno, I have developed this computer controlled robot. It can be controlled via the computer and we can use specific keyboard keys to move it. It runs over serial communication which we have already discussed in our previous project - PC Controlled Home Automation. Components Required Arduino UNO DC Motor Laptop Motor Driver L293D 9 Volt Battery Battery ...

Make Telecran with Arduino

I came across a bunch of stepper motors and I have since been looking for a project to do with the kids. An old Telecran (French for Etch-a-Sketch) later, we are in business ! Optional parts: - a sensor shield + 2 push buttons - a Nintendo Wii Nunchuck - a WiiChuck adapter And also: - hot glue gun Step 1: Mechanics The mechanical part has been done with some Fishertechniks parts. I had to drill into the ste ...

Temperature Recording Arduino Robot

My son and myself made a little arduino robot that records temperature. He wanted me to draw a robot, I wanted to experiment with blinking LEDs relaying data so a plan was hatched. The way the LEDs work is as follows: Green = lowest temperature recorded, Yellow = highest and Red = current temperature with all readings being in °C. Step 2: Wiring Up I realise now how bad the photograph is but as everything i ...

Poor Man’s Robot Base

I've been wanting to get into robotics for awhile now, but it can cost at the very least 20 dollars to build a decent motor base, and I wasn't willing to invest that much money into it, so I made a robot base using parts I had lying around.  You're not likely to build this exactly as I do, so this will require some creativity on your part. Step 1: Tools/Materials [box color="#985D00" bg="#FFF8CB" font="verd ...

Build an Arduino-powered talking robot head using arduino

This robot head was originally built as a end of the year project for my physical computing class, but over the summer it has "learned" how to talk. The head is powered by two Freeduinos, 3 TLC5940NT chips and an Adafruit Industries Wave Shield found here: www.ladyada.net/make/waveshield/. The head is currently connected to a computer by two USB cables, one for power, one for sending it serial commands on w ...

Wallbots: Autonomous Magnetic Robots that Traverse Vertical Surfaces using arduino

This Instructable will teach you how to create magnetic robots that traverse vertical surfaces. These robots can move on any metallic walls, including elevators, whiteboards, refrigerators or metal doors. The robots are outfitted with several light sensors, allowing them to respond to simple user interactions. My implementation supports 3 robot 'personalities', which can be changed by covering the topmost l ...

How to Build an Arduino Powered Chess Playing Robot using arduino

Judging by the sheer number of chess related Instructables, I think it's safe to say the community enjoys the game.  It can be difficult, however, to find someone who plays on the same level you do.  To solve this dilemma, and to increase my playing skills, I built this arduino powered chess playing robot. The board works like any other xy table, with a few key differences.  First, the x axis has an extra s ...
