ELECTRIC WHEELCHAIR MAKES A GREAT BASE FOR A BIG ROBOT

Building robots can be fun, and remains a popular pastime among many in the hacker and maker set. However the hardware side of things can be daunting. This is particularly the case for those attempting to build something on a larger scale. A great shortcut is to start with a robust mechanical platform from the outset – and using an electric wheelchair is a great way to do so. [Nikita] started this project w ...

THIS FORCE CONTROLLED ROBOT GRIPPER IS LESS LIKELY TO BREAK STUFF

While robotic arms can handle a wide variety of tasks, the specific job at hand will have a major influence on the type of end effector used. For sorting ferromagnetic parts an electromagnet might be enough, while for more accurate location a mechanical gripper could be employed. If you’re working with particularly delicate objects or in concert with human beings, it may be desired to have a force controlle ...

Arduino omni-wheel robot and pen plotter

Instructables member “Lingib” has created a awesome Arduino powered Omni Wheel CNC pen plotter, powered by an Arduino Uno and Bluetooth module allowing the system to receive commands via a linked smartphone or tablet. If you’re not familiar with omni-wheels the unique wheels only provide traction in the direction of rotation. Any oblique force causes the wheel to move sideways. Check out the video below to ...

Anti-Collision (Wall Hugging) Robot

Our project consists of a vehicle designed to avoid collisions with objects and walls. The vehicle achieves this through the use of an onboard sensor to determine when such an object was close by. [gallery columns="2" size="medium" ids="31197,31198"] After recognizing an object within a certain distance the vehicle would then follow a series of parameters to determine the appropriate action to take in order ...

The Picture Drawing Robot

The desired outcome of our final project was to create an autonomous robot that was programmed to move through a series of figures, then stop. Due to time constraints we limited the robot to “ drawing ” two figures, a five pointed star as well as a circle, on a piece of paper. [gallery columns="2" size="medium" ids="31188,31189"] We decided to use the HSC912 microcontroller in conjunction with two DC motor/ ...
