Let's Make Robots!

AmsterBot

Avoid objects, move around random, make someone smile

I was in Amsterdam for New years eve and ended up buying myself a coffee cup that came in a cool box. After I got home I put away my new cup and then thought about what I could do with this little box.... XXX AmsterBOT was born

Been playing with the code and learning a lot. I added a little video of Amsterbot's dance.

Next step is the Sensor.

 

PS- I asked my Lady to marry me on New years eve in Amsterdam.. so this bot is getting a machine shop made custom body and I already have a new dome for the new body. The dome shown on amsterBot is my practice run.

The bottom video is the newest video.

Love me my domed robots. You worked the sensor into yours nicely, well done.

is shaping up to be pretty sweet. I wonder if some "strut tower braces" between the two servos would assist in cutting down on the extreme camber. :)

 

My buddy is making the body out of Aluminum so the mounts will be better than hot glue and straight. Yeah the cardboard box will be beat soon:)

 

Thanks for the link JAX!

 

Video should be up in minutes!

HC-SR04 resource page. Library, hints, pretty colors :)

Fire, flooding, and plague! The original XXX! Or some dude's coat of arms. I like the former. Nice bot body either way.
