In part 8 of the Build a Real Robot series I will start designing the motor controller. It’s being designed using ATmega328P microcontrollers and will have an I2C interface.
Today I’m getting my development environment setup and I’ll go over the criteria for the motor controller.
In part 5 of the “Build a Real Robot” series I will show you the electronic modules that are mounted on the base unit of DB1.
One of the modules, a Raspberry Pi 3B+, may not be exactly perfect for the job! I will explain why we are using it now, and why it might get replaced with another microcomputer at a later date.
In the fourth installment of the Build a REAL Robot series I will discuss wheels. While it may not seem like the most thrilling subject, selecting wheels for your robot is a very important task.
I will discuss some of the specifications you will need to know when selecting robot wheels and I’ll also go over the different types of wheels you can use for your robot.
In the third installment of the “Build a REAL Robot” series I will show you how to select DC gearmotors for your robot. I’ll also show you the motors that I used in the DB1 design, and how I mounted them to the chassis.
In addition, I’ll introduce you to a very useful online tool for selecting robot motors
In the second installment of the “Build a REAL Robot” series I will show you how to assemble the chassis for the DB1 robot
I will also discuss some of the materials that you can use to create robot chassis of your own design
Introducing DB1, a “real” robot project that you can follow along and build.
In this introduction to the project I will go over the main features and “layers” that DB1 is composed of. You will also get an idea of how the project will evolve.
The Elegoo Smart Robot Car is an Arduino-based design with an impressive list of features
In the final installment of this series, I show you how to use both Collision Avoidance and Line Tracking with the Smart Robot Car.
In the second part of the series on building the Elegoo Smart Robot Car I will show you how to use the remote control functions.
The robot car has both IR remote control and Bluetooth remote control capabilities. Today we will learn how to use and code for both of these.
The Elegoo Smart Robot Car V3 is an Arduino-based robot car with features like Bluetooth remote, IR remote, line following, and collision avoidance.
In the first of a three-part article I will show you how to assemble and test the Robot Car.
Introduction One advancing technology that has been impossible to ignore lately has been the work with self driving vehicles. These vehicles have gone from scientific curiosity to mainstream within a few short years and soon we’ll be seeing them as
