Arduino-Controlled Robotic Drum

For years I have been telling anyone who listens that I was going to build a robotic drum. Most people kind of shrugged indifferently. Even as I built it, most people kind of glanced over at it and conveyed doubtfulness. It seemed like no one but myself was convinced of just how awesome it was going to be. I received a lot of snarky comments about how I was making a strange annoying noise maker. When I fina ...

SITWAY

You are never to old to learn and try new things. I think one of the best days in my life was the day I discovered the Instructables web site. It opened up a whole new world to me. This is my third instructable . I really enjoy building anything that I can ride on or get in to. I bought an Arduino Uno and was planning on building a balancing Robot. I was really impressed with the Balancing Skate Board that ...

Accelerometer Controlled Robot

Most of industrial robots are still programmed using the typical teaching process, through the use of the robot teach pendant. In this paper is proposed an accelerometer-based system to control an industrial robot using two low-cost and small 3-axis wireless accelerometers. These accelerometers are attached to the human arms, capturing its behavior (gestures and postures). An Artificial Neural Network (ANN) ...

The Arduino Mothbot

The purpose of this project is to design and build a simple light-following robot using an Arduino Duemilanove microcontroller board. I really wanted to share a robot project that was cheap, simple to build, and had a complete set of instructions for all of the different steps. I hope I've succeeded and I'd love to get comments about making this instructable even better. The design of this robot focused aro ...

Line Follower Robot using Arduino

A line follower robot using 8051 microcontroller is already published here and this time the same thing is done using  arduino. This line follower robot is basically designed to follow a black line on a white surface. Any way the same project can be used to follow the opposite configuration with appropriate changes in the software. The entire hardware of this simple line follower robot using arduino can be ...

Control Your Robot Using a Wii Nunchuck (and an Arduino) using arduino

After wearing myself out playing Wii Boxing I got to thinking wouldn't it be great if I could use this to control my robot, (looking to my left hand). Looking around the internet I found a bevy of people doing similar things, (links to everyone just below the video). So what follows is a re-packaging of all their hard work, resulting in a robot controllable by both the Wii nunchuck's joystick or more intere ...
