BUGBot – Light Follower Robot using Arduino

The figures above shows the basic idea of any robot, where we have some inputs and output devices connected to the brain and some outputs controlled by the brain. In our case we will have the Arduino like the brain. The central Brain, controls all movements of the Robot.  The sensors will do the monitoring where the light focus is and finally the motors that gives to the robot its movements to go forward, t ...

Tankbot – Internet Controlled Tank Robot using Arduino

Do you remember a game called Tank Wars? This is an attempt to make a physical version of that classic arcade game. You, the player drive an Arduino powered tank and fire a laser at a target. This project uses an Arduino to control a tank through a web page. The tank is driven from a control panel on a web page, that is communicated to over a  WiFly. The tank uses a Parallax Ping to avoid obstacles, a servo ...

Tiny Altoid Tin Robot With Personality

I love robots. Normally the ones I build are quite large and wouldn't fit in your pocket, but for a change of pace I decided I would try something small and fun! This robot is exactly that, and in fact fits inside of an altoids tin. It is inexpensive, versatile (so many different sensors can be used), and extremely entertaining. Check it out in action below! (Unfortunately I played with mine so much before ...

Hercules: The Motion Controlled Android Robot using Arduino

When I was in the 8th grade, I was intrigued while playing the motion games on Nokia 5800. I was thrilled, how I could control the racing car by only tilting the phone. I used to dream of making this same car in the real world. Now, in 11th  grade ( Age 17) having got an Arduino Uno and learnt how to program it, I was able to build my "Hercules" robot. Hercules is the name given to my motion controlled robo ...
