Let's Make Robots!




Hey there, this is the first robot Ive ever made... and not the sturdiest of machines.... or prettiest.

Just a rover. My first Arduino project was a joystick operated 3DOF arm, this seemed like the next step and, oposed to the arm which I used other peoples code and just stuck the pieces together, this code is mostly mine... as clunky as it is.

I started looking into building robots as a way to better learn coding as Ive only really stared this year for the day job.

Its at a level that I think this prototype works, not brilliantly but a good start. Next I might build a proper enclosure and tweak the code... then Im moving onto something that can fly:)

Excuse the poor quality of the video

cheers! Yeah, it seems Im not really sure how this site works as I thought this might appear on the robot page... (noob:() however, is it any different to showing it here?

The shield a sparkfun.com shield kit.

 thanks again

Blog entries do not get listed on the front page, but Robot Projects do (as do Components, Tips, and Challenges). The Robot Project content type also allows you to fill in a bunch of other details, locomotion type, quantity motors, processor type, power supply, etc... Please feel free to re-post this as a Robot if you want.

Oh, and welcome to LMR ;)

ok, cheers

Nice job for your first rover! Have you thought about putting in on a robot page?

That shield on the Arduino looks interesting. Did you come up with it yourself?

Good effort.
