How to make a computer controlled Robot Project Using PIC16F877A? using pic microcontoller

After a short break, we’re back to the DIY robot projects series and I am sure you’ll love this one too. Before that I suggest you to go through all our earlier simple robotics projects for engineering students as well. This time, major difference is the added security to access the robot; you can control the robot only after you speak your password. The robot can move in four directions and can be controll ...

Self-organizing Kilobots

Following simple programmed rules, autonomous robots arrange themselves into vast, complex shapes Cambridge, Mass. – August 14, 2014 – The first thousand-robot flash mob has assembled at Harvard University. “Form a sea star shape,” directs a computer scientist, sending the command to 1,024 little bots simultaneously via an infrared light. The robots begin to blink at one another and then gradually arrange t ...

Building A Robot: Motor Control

Since we now have a beautiful robotic chassis, we're ready to continue our Building A Robot series, and get serious with some motor control. This second part of building a robot is perhaps the most crucial as it will define what type of control we will have over the motors. Ideally, we want a simple method for controlling the motors so that our software is free to do other things. In this article we will mo ...

Ultrasonic Obstacle-avoiding Robot

This is my attempt at designing and building an obstacle avoiding robot! RekaBot (named after a fairy (: ) can detect obstacles with an ultrasonic sensor that can move around with help from a servo. Based on the measurements she takes, the tracks are driven towards the direction with the biggest distance - avoiding obstacles. Read in and try to build one yourself! Step 1: Concept, Drawings and Preliminary B ...

Large Dancing Robot using PIC16f877A microcontroller

Large Dancing Robot Build a large dancing robot. This was supposed to be a walking robot, but it more kinda beebopped around. video on last step. Build a Prototype First, The _Prototype_: Before you make a large, high power robot, it's good to make a smaller scale prototype. I made a simple walking robot using = Brains: PIC16f877A, = Actuators: two small geared pager motors (http://www.solarbotics.com/produ ...

Building BRAM your first Autonomous Mobile Robot using Microchip PIC Microcontroller – Part 1

Have you ever thought that most of our perception about the robot is based on the Hollywood movie! The famous 3CPO and R2D2 from Star Wars until the little cute garbage compacting robot named WALL-E; all of these machines are example of our dreams or should I say our quest to what we all think about the robot should be. Although the robot that we are going to build here is still far away from the technologi ...

Behavior Based Artificial Intelligent Mobile Robot with Sharp GP2D120 Distance Measuring Sensor – BRAM Part 2

What is the intelligent anyway; could we categories how the bees building their tiny hexagonal compound nest, ants searching for their food or birds migration using precision navigation over continental are the intelligent acts; or we as the human being with our cultures and civilizations is the only one that can be categories as the intelligent being? These kinds of question probably will not have satisfie ...
