Let's Make Robots!


Roams around, avoids obstacles with ultrasound and ir

This is propably fourth or fitfh evolution version of my first finished and working robot ever built.

It has Oopic-R controller as brains, 2 cont.rot. modified servos as drive system, 2 SRF04 sonars as obstacle detectors and 1 GP2D12 Ir-sensor to see edges of tables and such. And also lcd-display to help debugging.

It serves as generic testing platform for new hardware and new algorithm ideas. Nowdays i'm more of a arduino-fan but oopic is also nice board.

vids???? looks neat 
Video added, yay! It's a bit dark but hope you see something. Gonna try to get better one in daylight.
it looks like it gets way too close to things. You should change that value at which it decides to turn.
where did you get the plastic base? i'm looking for cheap blue plastic sheet.
That is called Lexan or polycarbonate sheet. Unlike acrylic, it is much stronger and does not crack. It is also easier to machine. It also comes in many colors.
a dark blue 3' by 4' sheet?
Its called google my freind. Thats all i did was google it. Thats all you had to do. scroll down to blue http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/product.asp?catalog_name=USPlastic&category_name=21314&product_id=9792.

It is acrylic, got it from local hardware-store here in finland.

Bottom one is 4mm thick and top plate is 2mm.
