Let's Make Robots!

Hello and My New Arduino Robot Project

Hi Guys,

This is my first post here although I have been lurking for a few weeks now. I am brand new to the world of robots and Arduino. I bought my first Arduino in September and I'm just starting my first robot! My robot's name is Herbert...named after H.G. Wells and kind of an homage to Star Trek....

I plan to have Herbert be a long term learning project. I'm starting with simple motor control and moving up and onward from there. Here is my first video documenting my learning about Arduino motor control using transistor circuits:

My movie making skills suck but hopefully will improve with practice, heh....:) Also, I'll study up on the rules and FAQs so I'll follow all the correct guidelines....

As I get going here I will document everything I learn and share....

Edit:  Now that I am getting the hang of Let's Make Robots! I will start a robot project page...but in the mean time, here is another video of Herbert in action.  This one actually has him driving a bit...lol...see below:

I think your video skills are good! I love your chassis!!

The chassis was actually an early Christmas present :)  I was using the body of a Hummer RC from Walmart, lol....

 

Here's the link to the chassis: http://www.robotshop.us/dfrobot-4wd-arduino-mobile-platform-3.html
