Wally – IR Detection Robot using Arduino

My First ever Robot. It tracks objects using Infra-red sensors, and has basic AI that follows and avoid objects.

I will describe the how I made this robot, and upload some videos.

Arduino Wally – IR Detection Robot

Version 1 (16 Dec 2011):

—————–The components used ———————-

I actually planned this robot before making
it. I didn’t use all the parts expected. here http://blog.oscarliang.net/ir-…

I only used these compenents:

Arduino

2 x Servo

IR detector

Motor Driver

2 x Motors

4 x AA battery

2 x Wheels

some capacitors/resistors

———————- How did you implement the code ———————-

I divided the robot into 3 functional parts,
write the code and tested each part separately, and finally put them together
and integrate them to work together. For each part see:

Arduino Wally – IR Detection Robot Circuit

———————- Explaining to me the whole idea of this robot ———————-

You should see what this robot can do from the videos. It’s
very simple, and it’s very responsive to interactions, therefore making it very
fun to play with (my friends love it!

Before I put them together, I first made a base with a recycled CD.
