DIY handmade Hexapod with arduino (Hexdrake)

Hello, I'm David and in this instructable I'll show how I made this hexapod whose name is Hexdrake. Since I was 16 I became interested in electronic and later in robotics. After getting some level and programming skills using arduino I decided to build a robot something more interesting than a simple robot with two wheels . I liked the idea of having a hexapod but did not have much money to buy one. So I bu ...

Arduino Light Following Robot

Overview This instructable will use three photoresistors (light dependent resistors) and an Arduino to control the motion of a robot. Any common robot chassis can be used for the robot. The light sensors will be mounted on the left side, right side and front of the robot. When light of sufficient intensity falls on a sensor, the robot will respond with a left turn, right turn or forward movement, correspond ...

Arduino Robot V2 (Fast) Also Voice Controlled

This is my second version of my arduino robot after "Build your first robot". My Second version is slightly complicated as compared to my first one but offers better features. In this instructable I'm going to show you how to build a fast robot which can measure temperature, find things in front of it, stream videos and a lot more. With a pair of 1000RPM motors this robot can go very fast and this version u ...

Robot shield for Arduino Board

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, wi ...

Robotic Arm Trifecta (Science Olympiad)

In the fall of 2012, we set out to construct a robotic arm for the Science Olympiad competition that would be capable of performing the required set of tasks efficiently and to perfection. This instructable will attempt to guide you through the thought processes used in the design and construction of this project. We spent countless hours working on this robot and hope to refine this into a condensed versio ...

Self-Balancing Robot

First of all I want to apologize for my English, if you don't understand something, please, ask. I know that a self-balancing robot is not new, but when i started this project i found a lot of information, but never in the same site, i had to search a lot to join all information in a single project. Becouse of that i'm making this instrucctable, to show you all the information i get, with all detail, to mak ...

Build Your Own BARBOT using Arduino

Ever wanted a robotic liquor server? I purchased a Lynxmotion robotic arm last year and an Arduino (deci) to play around with. I had it serial controlled with a joystick and it was a great way to start in robotics. More recently I wanted to take on another micro-controller related project for a university science fair. Since it was going to be hosted at the on-campus pub, I thought it would be fitting to bu ...

Highly maneuverable search and rescue robot

Finalized Prototype Shown below is the finalized prototype. The purpose of the prototype was to demonstrate the feasibility of a small, highly maneuverable search and rescue robot. As such, the completed prototype was successful. Capabilities include a ground speed of 10 inches per second, battery life of 50 minutes, wireless range of between 50 and 150 feet (depending on interference), weight of 14.5 pound ...

Robo-Mobile – A Homemade Bluetooth Robot using arduino

Background This robot is one I built to learn. Before this project I did get my feet wet with a few small scale Arduino projects like an ultrasonic robot, (that would move backwards until it was a certain distance away from the wall,) and I did get to play with a few of the shields designed for the Arduino, but I had never built a full scale project with this microchip, or really, any microchip. I knew if I ...

ANDROID BASED ROBOTICS

While the field of robotics is continuously expanding at a remarkable rate and better performing robots are created every year, robotics still remains out of reach for many students and researchers. The main reasons for this difficulty are the high complexity of the hardware and software of robots, and their typically high cost. We believe that the computing power, sensing capabilities and intuitive program ...

Maze Solving Robot

In this instructable I will be showing you how to build a maze solving robot. This is actually my 3rd attempt at making one. The first was a complete failure. The second was alright at finding the end of the maze, but it could not go back and drive the quickest path. This is my current and 3rd one. It is able to find the end of the maze and then, when put back at the start, drive the shortest path to the en ...

Electric Turtle Robot

Be sure to check out my new instructable , the 'little Tank'! Really nice tracked design complete with cut files! update: I've had so much response on this instructable, thanks to all. If you end up making one, please let me know! I'd love to put your work on my website! New new update - The Electric Turtle is going to the 2011 Makers Faire in New York with the LMR (lets Make Robots) exhibit!!! 5" robotic p ...
