Simple Robotic Arm Project Using Arduino

Nowadays, manual labor is being reduced at big scale industries and factories to increase efficiency and gain profit by installing robots that can do repetitive works. A onetime installation of such a device may cost a huge amount, but in the long run, will turn out to be more profitable that manual labor. Out of the lot, a simple robotic arm is one of the most commonly installed machines. We are introducin ...

DIY Ceiling Mounted Cable Robot Using Arduino Mega

An interesting Arduino project has been created by Nathaniel Nifong and kindly published to Reddit, offering insight on how to create your very own DIY ceiling mounted cable robot powered by an Arduino Mega development board. More commonly associated with sporting events cable robots offer an easy way to view the action on large pitches and are normally mounted with cameras and microphones. Although Nathani ...

Obstacle Detection

In this project, we will use several ultrasonic sensors to create a robot car with obstacle detection feature. The sensors will help us estimate the distance of the car from the nearby obstacles. Thus allowing us to create routines that we can execute when the car is about to hit the obstacle while moving. If you want to know more on how an ultrasonic sensor work, please refer to 4Duino Ultrasonic Sensor pr ...

Arduino based Bluetooth Biped Bob (Walking & Dancing Robot)

Welcome to another project in which we will build a small Robot which can walk and dance. The project aims in teaching you how to make small hobby robots using Arduino and how to program your Servo motors for such applications. At the end of the project you will be able to make this walking and dancing robot that takes command from an Android Mobile Phone to perform some pre-defined actions. You can also us ...

Real Time Face Detection and Tracking Robot using Arduino

Ever wanted to build a Face Tracking Robotic Arm or Robot by simply using Arduino and not any other programming like OpenCV, visual basics C# etc? Then read along, in this project we are going to implement face detection by blending in the power of Arduino and Android. In this project, the mobile camera will move along with your face with the help of servos. The advantage of using the Android Mobile Phone h ...

Remote Controlled Robot Using Arduino and T.V. Remote

This remote controlled car can be moved around using practically any kind of remote such as TV,AC etc. It makes use of the fact that the remote emits IR(infrared). This property is made use of by using an IR receiver,which is a very cheap sensor. In this instructable you will learn how to Interface IR receiver to Arduino. Interface 2 motors to Arduino. Combine the above 2 setups. Note:This remote controlled ...

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. ...

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 ...
