Animatronic Robot Head

I've improved the old robot head project which can be found at the old articles link.. The head will be powered by servomotors and will be built from sheet plastic, metal or plywood. The template which can be used for cutting sheet material can be found at the end of this article. Download the template, compare the size of the printed servomotor with your servomotors at hand. Do the necessary resizing opera ...

FailureBot 5 – A Line Following Robot

Introduction The objectives of the FailureBot project originated simply as "build a line-following robot". However, it somehow evolved into a 3-year robotics experiment. My first attempt to build a robot was such a complete failure that I jokingly called it "FailureBot". The name seemed quite appropriate even as the project evolved as every one of the many, many failures yielded a critical lesson in the rob ...

MC9RS08KB4CFK Minibot

The Minibot is a small autonomous robot vehicle that uses phototransistor that can detect lightness patterns on the ground to follow the edges of the dark lines. It has a MC9RS08KB4 MCU, coin cell, motor, and a phototransistor. The MC9RS08KB4 is part of the MC9RS08KB12 series, a family of RS08KB 8-bit microcontrollers. It features a 4KB flash size, 14 to 18 I/O pins, 8 to 12 channels of ADC, and a 126 RAM s ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

JavaBot1……….. A line following robot

Design Goal:   The JavaBot1 is a small line following robot designed to follow a black line drawn on a dry erase board. It is designed to follow very tight curves. The software still has lot's of room for improvement but works well as is. Motive Power: The JavaBot1 uses 2 Cirrus CS-70 servos that have been modified for full rotation and have had their controller boards removed to convert them from serv ...
