Let's Make Robots!

Dean's first robot - TapeBot

 

TapeBot was built following the "build your first robot" tutorial. The body is a discarded backup tape box from one of my servers at work.

The processor is PicAxe, SRF05 range finder, motors and wheels from Solarbotics. The tape box opens like a car hood to access the motors and battery pack. 

The video show TapeBot running on the navigation program included with the tutorial. I've reprogrammed him with the clean navigation program and he runs better on that. I'll try to post a video of that soon.

repurposed household parts make the best bots. can't wait to see more of your designs.

I love old computer parts bots! So much of that stuff is simply wasted or chucked away.

Welcome to LMR, that's a great first Robot!

That tape box looks like a perfect robot chassis. Clean and simple with plenty of room.
