Uno The Arduino Robot




Age: 13

Meet Uno the Arduino powered robot.  Some functions include a blinking nose, moving antennas, rotating head, IR distance sensor, twin motor gear box and rotation counters.  Uno is made with relatively easy to obtain parts.  This project provides a good introduction to Arduino.

Step 1: Materials

Material and tools
• Foam board
• Fimo
• 4 Rare Earth magnets
• 4 small metal plates (from transformer)
• Thrust bearing
• LEDs
• IR distance sensor
• Twin motor gear box with wheels
JST
• 2 9VDC pin solenoid
• Arduino
• A-B USB cable
•power source
•switch
• Servo
•3 TIP 120 or121
male header pins
• School glue
• Weld bond
• Hot Glue gun
• Xato knife/carpet cutter
• Pen
• Wire strippers/cutters
•Pliers
•Clear tape
 copper clad 
• ferric chloride
• 2 lever switch
• 2 1 µF capacitor 
•  30 gauge wire
• 5 1k ohm resistors
• 1 470 ohm resistor
• 2.1mm barrel Jack

Step 2: Cutting

Download the PDF file and print it. rough cut the templates then tape them to the foam board. Next use a new Xato knife blade and a straight edge to cut it out. Cut out 4 pattern A, 1-B, 3-C, 2-D, 1-E, 1-F, 2-G.

Step 3: The Base

Cut out the circle in template B then assemble the gear box to 1: 60.   Draw a  line through the center of the template. Match the center of the gear box with this line. mark the template on each side of the mounting plate, do the same for the wheels, then cut(see photo).     Hot glue the gear box in place then glue the thrust bearing in place(see photo).

Step 4: The Body

Find the center of template F then drill a 3/16” hole. Put servo knob in the hole and trace the servo then cut out this piece. Reinsert the servo and hot glue it in place.  To form body glue 3 A’s and 1 F together with white school glue (see photo)then paint. Find the center of piece D and drill a  5/32” hole. Then line up the hole in the servo horn with the hole in the foam board and hot glue. Drill a 1/4” hole through piece D and F(see picture for position).
