New robot being planned

Hi,

It's been a long time. However, I'm finally getting out of my house and moving into a motorhome.

However, until I can convince my girlfriend to join me, I will be lonely in the driver's seat. So I'm planning on making a droid head and put it on top of an old chassis that I found that is tall enough. I want to put this robot in the passenger seat and make comments about the other drivers. And perhaps my driving. :)

Quadruped Sneak Peak!

In the Grapes of Wrath, there was a turtle that had a lot of symbolism, and in English class, you can basically do anything for the final project. So I thought, what the heck, I'll just play my strengths! Below is a rough CAD using 3d-printed parts and MG996R servos. Electronics are not really shown, shell is not missing (like there's a CAD of a salad bowl out there), and the head has been remodified to have a more "turtle" look. Photos of the final product coming soon.

Elder care Robot

Very interested in elder care

Would love to start a project 

Involving robots for the elderly. 

Has anyone here started a project like this ? or does

Anyone have any input? 

Schreibotics will be my website soon enough!!!

Dear: LMR

Hello guys this is me Noah again. You should know I have had plenty of expereince with HTML5 and CSS for many years now and I have finally put those skills together to make a website. Of course I have no idea if I am going to publish it of course because I am not finished coding it, I am more than half way done with coding it, and I am not sure if I could afford a website. Thank you guys and wish me good luck!!!

Both Arms

A brief moment in history when both arms i have built from lolly pop sticks and spit

ACTUALLY WORKED AT THE SAME TIME

this minor miracle of alignment of stars was worthy of a blog entry.

LCD display for Arduino how hard can it be ?

Yeah so i thought i would have a play with an LCD display.

How hard can it be I foolishly thought.

in my ignorance I assumed they were all pretty much the same and spoke the same language.

My problem came when I wanted to talk with it on the UNO.

All the libraries are different.

Not being a good programer I tend to womble a bit of code from here and there,

and go off and do the fun stuff of building it,

and eventually get it to do what I want.

This becomes a bit of problem when the sketches are

made for different hardware.

The Dangers of LED Constant-Current Boost Drivers - Hazardous to your Arduino!

Does this picture look familiar to anyone?   In particular, the raised bump of melted plastic on what used to be the voltage regulator for the Mega2650?  I hope not too many! 

Trinity robot chassis upgrade!!!

Dear: LMR

Just to let you know I have recently built a new chassis for my trinity firefighting robot. The purpose of me building a new chassis was that the old chassis was too diffucult to use and debug. FIrst of all it was a self ballancer robot which made it diffucult to control. Second of all it was so tiny it was diffucult to debug the wiring. Any opinions on the new chassis? Thank you.

From: Noah

PS: I used the same electronics from the old robot to the new robot including motors. Enjoy!!!

See you at Arduino Day 2016 at London

Hi there!

Maybe you know next Saturday 2nd of April is the Arduino Day. It's a day to celebrate the Arduino movement and all the good things we enjoy with Arduino.

Help with guard bot please check out c if u can help

i want my robot to roam until it hears something with a mic sensor then stops. howd i do this i have it roaming and i used the mic sensor on a sepertatly coded arduino!

An even cheaper Wi-Fi board


For a few cents more than the ESP12F you get it with a programmer daughter board, a RGB led, a button and a photoresistor.
This is ideal for small robot with networking abilities.
Can be programmed with Arduino IDE as a NodeMCU v1.0 .

Curt the Creeper Update: Adding Voice Interactivity and Sound; 4 bar linkage design

Update:
--------------

I spent the past few weeks researching voice interactivity and sound effect playback (mainly through Google search), and designing a 4 bar linkage to figure out what powertrain I need to drive the feet movement.  I thought others might benefit from info about my work so I'm posting it here.  This project will likely move at a fairly slow pace mainly due to current budget constraints.

Tips for Writing Reviews

 

HELLO LMR REVIEWER!

 

Large Scale Humanoid Concept

Did some CAD using SolidWorks, and made this:

 

Free BT Android Control App

I guess some folks have been looking for my old robot app. I decided to post it here for any/all to use for free. I have long since lost the instruction manual I wrote for it but it should be pretty easy to set up and use.

If anyone wants to write a quick info manual, please do.

Basically,

Jetduino: Robotics interface for NVIDIA Jetson TK1

I have been working on a new interface board for the Jetson TK1 embedded supercomputer called the Jetduino. It makes it very easy to build robots that can use the parallel processing capabilites of the NVIDIA GPU for vision and neural neural networks.


second aduino arm

This is the

second arm i built

bigger base servo

better claw

more repeatable and less wobble

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxtpB_15iQQ

video of it working

picks up object

drops it at top of slide

repicks object

This is my first attempt at an arm

My first attempt at an arduino uno arm

4x micro servers

lollypop sticks

bent paperclips

and a whole load of hot glue

etc etc

powered by farnell 5v supply as very jittery on batteries

you tube video of it working (sort of)

CURT THE CREEPER

Hi,

I am a new member to Letsmakerobots and so far I am very impressed with the site, the people, and the projects.  I hope to learn and share with you all in the facinating and rapidly developing field of robotics and AI.
