Controlling A Robotic Car Through MATLAB GUI

This project presents the implementation of a MATLAB based graphical user interface (GUI) to control the movement of a robotic car. The commands to move the car in forward, reverse, right and left directions are sent from the GUI and processed by Arduino Uno board mounted on top of the car. Authors’ prototype is shown in Fig. 1.     MATLAB GUI based robotic car Circuit and working In this project, ...

Simple Robotic Arm Project Using Arduino

Nowadays, manual labor is being reduced at big scale industries and factories to increase efficiency and gain profit by installing robots that can do repetitive works. A onetime installation of such a device may cost a huge amount, but in the long run, will turn out to be more profitable that manual labor. Out of the lot, a simple robotic arm is one of the most commonly installed machines. We are introducin ...

Servo Motor Control with Arduino Due

As discussed earlier, Arduino Due is an ARM controller based board designed for electronic engineers and hobbyists. This DUE board can be used for making CNC machines, 3D printers, robotic arms etc. All these projects have a common feature that is Position Control. Any of these projects needs accuracy towards their position. Accurate positions in these machines can be achieved by Servo Motors. In this sessi ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

A Robotic lawn mower powered by Solar Energy with an Arduino heart

This robot will mow the grass of your garden, staying within a defined area, avoiding all obstacles and working in complete autonomy, automatically charging itself with a solar panel. In this post we present a robotic lawn mower, powered with solar energy and able to operate just with the clean energy from the sun; this one is a great difference from the commercial projects having a robot in need of a charg ...

Modifying a Robot Arm using Arduino

Essentially another tutorial involving controlling DC motors. In this post I’m going to first alter a robot arm I had built previously from a beginners kit so that it can be controlled from Arduino. Then I’m going to write a series of posts on different ways to control the robot arm using Processing and other things. You should be able to use all of what I write for work with other toys and motors. To start ...
