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 ...

Microchip – Let my robot see! using pic microcontoller

I promised to post some of my past microcontroller vision projects. This one has a Microchip PIC directly sampling a video signal. 8 pins well used. Collapsible Quadruped Robot with Computer Vision, Laser Ranging, and Servo Control on a Single-Wire Network Photos and video capture by Glenn Currie. Download project design_files_PicVid97.zip. Austin Texas, 1997. I found a nice piece of aluminum and the Microc ...

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 ...

The Glowing Green Robot

Robots look cooler when they have a sinister green glow. Better yet, when that glow exists for a functional purpose it's even better! Here I show how to make a custom robot and use LED's to not only enhance line following, but also make it work in the dark too. Step 1: The Mechanical Design First you need to design your robot. I designed mine using CAD, planning out the locations of all the parts carefully. ...

The Rock

This robot is controlled by a visual basic program (through the serial port), and can move in three different velocities by a pulse width modulated (PWM) signal generated by a PIC microcontroller (16F877). The robot can be operated in two modes, "normal control" and "light tracker" modes. In the normal control mode, the robot can carry objects sized from 3 - 18 cm from place to another within 150 m. whereas ...

Cheap Easy Solar Powered Robot

Make a very cheap, relatively easy to construct robot which will wake up any time you shine a desk lamp on it. There are no sensors on it, although I suppose the solar panel can be called a sensor. I plan on adding solar panels and another motor, and making it controlled by a PIC microcontroller in the future. Step 1: The Circuit The circuit for the robot is very simple, it has no digital electronics. It's ...
