Polydexter: Arduino Robotic Translation Arm

Polydexter was the introductory project in the Creative Architecture Machines (CAM) advanced options architecture studio at the California College of the Arts (CCA), taught by Jason Kelly Johnson (co-founder of Future Cities Lab) and Michael Shiloh. Parts developed for this robot would go on to become integral in the second project of the studio, our walking 3D printer Geoweaver, which can also be found her ...

Boot Bot Arduino Bootload Shield

The Boot Bot Shield lets you burn the arduino boootloader onto a blank Atmega 328 chip. The bootloader is that magic piece of software that turns a mundane chip into the open source programmable miracle known as the arduino. Blank chips cost a few dollars less per chip than bootloaded ones. With the Boot Bot you will have no need for all that pre-bootloaded extravagance. Once completed, this board will allo ...

Six wheeled All Terrain Vehicle (6WD) using Arduino

Hello, In this post we"ll be making a Six wheel drive all terrain vehicle (ATV). These are rare and hence expensive robots (at least in India). I made this ATV as my summer project. Dagu manufactures a similar 6WD chassis but its way too expensive (Rs 20000 / $ 250). So I decided to make a cheap Six Wheel drive(6WD) - All terrain vehicle(ATV) chassis out of aluminium and steel and then control it with an an ...

How to Build a Robotic Hand with Haptic Feedback using Arduino

For science fair this year, I felt like building something instead of doing an experiment. All I needed to do was look around Instructables for a project idea. I was inspired by njkl44's robotic hand since it reminds me so much of stuff out of science fiction movies. My goal was to create a system of haptic feedback from a robotic hand like that. The system provides a way for the person controlling the hand ...

Make Wired Robotic Arm Edge to “Wireless” with DIY Arduino and XBee

UPDATE: Added Schematic, Top Layer PCB, Bottom Layer PCB, and both Top, Bottom PCB images When I finished the  "RevIO" - an Arduino Clone that has the different way of exposing pins usage. I decided to go further to the next project. To test my "RevIO" board that it could do the bigger task than just blinking the LED! I modified the Wired Robotic Arm Edge to Wireless controlled, using my "RevIO" and DIY Thr ...

My Ninth Project: Robot Arm with Joystick Shield using Arduino

Although it is great controlling the robot arm with computer or mobile phone, I think using joystick is also cool, so I've bought a joystick shield and make a new project. This joystick shield is compatible with Arduino. It also support Nokia 5110 LCD module, nRF24L01 wireless module and Bluetooth module. It should be fun and convenient for various projects. : ) Step 1: Parts Joystick Shield Robot Arm Set 1 ...

Arduino and L293D Robot ( Part 1 )

Here is part 1 of the Arduino and L293D Robot.This is part of a series of instructables leading to a Line follower Robot. This is a basic Robot made by controlling two motors via the L293D chip through an Arduino Board. I have done this project in the past with similar set up just not with an Arduino Board. Do let me know what you think of this project and if I made any mistakes. Step 1: Parts Arduino Board ...
