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 ...

Super Simple Beginners Robot! using arduino

I created this Instructable for the absolute n00by robot wannabe. I have noticed a huge jump in the number of beginners getting into the hobby and the number of "how do I" questions seem to be mounting. Maybe this humble little Instructable will help one or two create their first robot. You will find basic source code at the end of this Instructable. Don't panic at the number of steps... I broke the robot d ...

Arduino robot kit – Wiring Diagram

I have created this wiring diagram for the connections between the motor controller, motors, and sensor shield. I’ll update it later to include other components. And here is an update that includes the servo motor and the range sensor. And here are the detailed pin assignments for all modules: PIN ASSIGNMENT Arduino Pin Description Motor Controller Range Sensor Servo Motor Line Detector Bluetooth Module VCC ...

Lego Spybotics with Arduino

A friend gave me his old Lego Spybotics robot, however, the programming environment that goes along with it is a bit too orientated to the younger user. So why not control it using an Arduino? Step 1: Open up! In order to get this robot moving, we need to borrow its motors. There are two DC motors in the robot. This is great, because we can control them independently, allowing forward, backwards and turning ...

Robotic Talking Turret using Arduino

Here I will show you an overview on how to make a robotic talking turret, loosely based off of the turrets from the popular game, Portal. This instructable should help anyone wanting to do an animatronics project. For more detailed pictures, go to: http://razorconcepts.net/turret.html This project require some experience with tools, electronic circuits, and maybe a little programming. Here is a sample video ...

Arduino Robotic Arm

In this instructurable I will show you how to make a simple robotic arm controlled by 4 servos , 2 analog joysticks, and an Arduino UNO. It is very similar to my "2 Servos + Thumbstick" instructurable. This tutorial is in particular to help out another Arduino user;  "RobotZee". I will guide you step by step using simple construction parts. Remember this tutorial is to help you out and for you to have an id ...

Ardusumo: an Open Source Platform for Fighting Robots using Arduino

The idea Ardusumo is a universal platform to build robots on wheels that can move around avoiding obstacles using infrared sensors and follow routes marked with dark lines on a white background. We have created Ardusumo to bring young students to the world of robotics: if suitably programmed, Ardusumo allows robots to perform various autonomous movements, it integrates sensors and actuators of various types ...

Buggy Wheelchair Robot using an Arduino

This is a Modification of an electric wheelchair. I called it "Buggy" for two reasons. #1 My kids can still ride it around because I left the seat intact. #2 I haven't programmed anything for a long time. I plan to create "jobs" for it in the near future. I welcome any input. Keep in mind this is my first Instruct-able. I found this chair on-line for a great price. The claim was that it was broken.  The OEM ...

CatBot: Automated Cat Laser using an Arduino

The CatBot is an autonomous laser toy for your cat. You may say "But Joe, isn't the laser pointer the best toy for the lazy cat owner?" I'd have to say no, the CatBot takes one step further. Using two servos, an Arduino and a cheap $3 laser you can provide your cat with endless fun. Step 1: The Problem I was buying pet food and saw a $3 laser from PetCo. I thought the cat might like it. I was wrong. The cat ...

Robot arm from a desk lamp (IKEA Tertial hack)

This project answers to a need I had: a third hand that holds a camera while I perform a test and takes photos/videos (useful when you're stuck at the lab late at night, and suddenly need a photographer). The downside to a robotic arm was obvious - It needs to be programmed, and it is the last thing you want to do when you need to make a video. So I made it motion capturing device as well... Motion capturin ...
