Firefighting Robot

For my project I created a robot with an attached water cannon. My mentor and I built it in a budget of around $300 (not including the necessary equipment), and it functions quite well. For the motors we used drill motors, powered by the 18 volt drill batteries. To control it all we used an arduino microcomputer. Step 1: Make Parts List/Gather Materials It is crucial that before you start a project, you kno ...

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 ...

Gesture controlled robot using Arduino

This gesture controlled robot uses Arduino,ADXL335 accelerometer and RF transmitter-receiver pair. We will divide the entire robot into 3 parts the transmitter,the receiver and the robot. The different gestures that have been mapped to the direction of the bot are- Hand parallel to the ground-stationary Hand tilted forward-forward Hand tilted backward-backward Hand tilted right-right Hand tilted left-left I ...

Object Tracking Robot

In this tutorial I am going to post the step-by-step procedure to make a simple Object Tracking Bot. The main aim of this Bot is to follow the objects which are shown to it in 3D space i.e., x, y and z – axis (horizontal, vertical and forward & backward). This bot behaves just like a little doggy. This bot tracks the objects with 2 DOF (Degree Of Freedom). The two motors provide the Horizontal, Forward ...

Arduino & Android Wireless Robot

Another Robot, another App(lication) of Arduino. The user [shreks7] built up an Android App for controlling the robot wirelessly and stream live video off an android phone placed on the robot. The robot has an inbuilt wireless router and two brush-less DC motors and runs on a power source of 26-30V(depends on the requirement) power supply. The robot streams live video back to the app and can be used for nav ...

Introduction: T.A.B.U. A Robot using Arduino

To all other teens (I'm 16)  who have begun to pick up an intrest in robotics and electronics the following project will give you a great user-system to get started with. This is not for complete beginers, but after only 6 months of teaching myself to code and develop robotics I have developed T.A.B.U. What did I make? T.A.B.U. is a crab like robot that runs on the arduino uno micrcontroller. T.A.B.U. stand ...

Autonomous Robot Part 3: Ghosty

Introduction Ghosty is an autonomous little robot who is adventurous and loves to explore his surroundings. However, unlike a normal ghost, he doesn’t like to scare people. Instead they actually scare him! In our most current version of Ghosty, his vision line is based on the data of two proximity sensor data reads. The difference between the data of the two proximity sensors determine whether the motors th ...

Robot shield for Arduino. Part 1 – Hardware and Schematic

The idea behind this post is to bring together some robot designs and trasform them in a new device with new hardware and standard software (arduino of course) and so easier to use. These robots have three things in common: a mechanical structure, the hardware and the software. While the mechanical part is necessarily different, we wanted to understand if there was a hardware board that could be common, wit ...

Android Phone Controlled Robot using Arduino

The Android phone that stays in your hand most of the time is useful in many other applications apart from Whatsapp, Facebook; appliances; monitor your health parameters. How it would be if it can control a Robot, which can assist in your daily work. With this project you can make a robot that can be controlled by an Android Phone, over Bluetooth Communication.The robot is built around Arduino interfaced wi ...

Arduino Project 8: Stompy the robot (part 1)

Our first Arduino robot called Rolly in our February issue proved to be a popular project. Powered by an Arduino Uno board it was easy to put together and cost very little. In this project we upped the ante again with our first walking robot appropriately called Stompy. He’s a quadruped a four-legged walker and he’s physically about as simple as you can make a walking robot. If you look online there are ple ...

Accelerometer Controlled Robot

Most of industrial robots are still programmed using the typical teaching process, through the use of the robot teach pendant. In this paper is proposed an accelerometer-based system to control an industrial robot using two low-cost and small 3-axis wireless accelerometers. These accelerometers are attached to the human arms, capturing its behavior (gestures and postures). An Artificial Neural Network (ANN) ...
