Before the 21st century, it’s quite difficult to develop a personal robot, as it might cost us over hundreds (Maybe thousands) of dollars, just to build a simple robot prototype!
However, thanks to the advent technology, we’re now can easily create any type of robots, with the help of Arduino. Honestly, it’s a piece of cake to develop your very own Arduino Robot.
Guys, are you ready to build up an Easy Arduino Robot? If you did, let’s start the journey…
Actually, this is a great little Arduino robot, which is based on an Arduino. Believe it or not, it can be done in a short period.
For this project, you’ll need to use a Modern Device RBBB, as the brain of the robot. Don’t worry, as the RBBB kits are user-friendly, even for the amateurs who are new in soldering!
Technically, the Arduino robot is powered with four AA batteries. The total cost of the project is very cheap. You have to apply the Sharp IR sensor as the eyes for the Arduino robot!
This is how the Arduino robot works:
It sweeps the IR range finder 130 degrees, and records the closest object.
If the object is more than 45 degrees to the right/left, it makes a small correction away from the object.
If the object is within the center 90 degrees, it stops; scouring left and right, then finds the clearest direction and turns about 90 degrees to that actual direction.
