Object Detecting Android Mobile Phone Controlled Bluetooth Robot Using PIC Microcontroller 16F877A

Last time we had a project on Arduino robots with Bluetooth and Android, and in that one our readers Mr. Paul asked how he can make an obstacle avoidance robot. So today I came up with another engineering project for electronics and communication students, Android and Bluetooth controlled robot using PIC Microcontroller with object detecting capability. After installing MikroElectron’s Robot Control App fro ...

Robot 1: “Little Jimmy” based on PICAXE-18M2

Robot 1: "Little Jimmy" based on PICAXE-18M2 I wanted to build this little robot to give me a fun and flexible platform for learning more about programming, RC (radio-control), drive trains (the mechanics that make it go) and the newest PICAXE processor, the 18M2. Under a modest budget, I sought to salvage materials and build as much as I could rather than purchase a kit. Since I live in an apartment, my av ...

Small Virtual Wall for iRobot Roomba using PIC12F629

The Virtual Wallis a circuit to mimic the behaviour of the iRobot Virtual Wall/Lighthouse, provided with the robot. It produces the same infrared pattern and the robot sees it as another virtual wall, blocking its path, while vacuuming. This circuit was built mostly using SMD components to reduce its size, nearly to the size of a 9V battery (PP3/6F22/6LF22/etc). Design Considerations After examining the ori ...

Servomotor-based mobile robot control

Project description:  Mobile robots are used in many industrial, commercial, research, and hobby applications. This project is about the control of a mobile robot using servomotors. The robot used in this project is the base of a popular mobile robot known as Boe Bot, developed by Parallax (www.parallax.com and www.stampinclass.com). The basic robot is controlled from a Basic Stamp controller (Trademark of ...

RC Servo Switcher using pic microcontoller

Introduction Some fellow members of The Abbenay Hackspace (an open hacker space based in Stockholm, Sweden) are embarked on an ambitious project with the aim of being the first to build an autonomous sailing robot which is capable of circumnavigating the Earth. The project is currently in the early prototyping stages and this RC Servo Switcher project is designed to allow them to regain control over the pro ...

GSM Based Versatile Robotic Vehicle Using PIC Microcontroller

This project is designed to develop as a robotic vehicle that can be controlled by a cell phones. DTMF commands from a phone send to another cell phone which is mounted on the robotic vehicle. These commands are fed to a PIC microcontroller of 8-bit architecture to operate the vehicle movement through motor interface. Conventionally Wireless-controlled Robots Use Rf Circuits, Which Have Limited Working Rang ...

TechBot line following robot using PIC16F84

Design Goal: The TechBot1 is a small line following robot designed for for the 1998 Embedded Systems conference in San Jose California. It was built by Jerry Merrill and myself and was designed as a promotional robot that would follow a black line drawn on a dry erase board.   Motive Power: The TechBot1 uses 2 Cirrus CS-70 servos that have been modified for full rotation and have had their controller boards ...
