Let's Make Robots!

Observer v2.0

Robot that can be controlled via bluetooth

So I build my first wheeled robot. For now it has no special functions or sensors, but I'm planning to add those features later. Robot can be controlled with PC, Laptop or mobile phone, but I have ordered second bluetooth module. With this module I want to build a controller. So I hope you like it, and feel free to ask about something that might interest you.

UPDATE 1.1 I've added lights and change controller from phone to arduino with accelerometer. For now it runs via laptop, but I've ordered Bluetooth module from e-bay, because I want to make standalone controller.

UPDATE 1.3 I've build the controller, it uses Atmega8. Now robot can be controlled via analog stick or accelerometer.


UPDATE 1.4 Third wheel has been added to the back side of the robot, this is the last update of version 1.X next update will be version 2.0.


UPDATE 2.0 I've switched to xbees and robot is now controlled by control glove

Thanks :)

Love the glove.  Great idea to make that work with your accelerometer so you can control it.

Thanks for sharing.



Thank you :) I want to turn that glove into an all-purpose input device for controlling basically everything :D

Great stuff!

Thank you :)

I love that thing! And are you still using arduino IDE for programming? If so could you post the code I have been trying to do something like this and cant get it to work. Thanks Matt

Thanks :) Yes I'm using Arduino IDE, I will post the code, but right now I'm working on a different project and I'm busy so I'm sorry that I can't help you, but you can send me a private message or mail describing your problem and I will gladly help you

hi mate

im thinking to make the same project for my uni assignment it will be really kind of you if you could send me the circuit diagrams of robot and controller also the codes.

(sorry for my bad english)

thank you

Hi I would like to help you but my I've accidentaly lost all of the data from my harddisc, so codes are gone. Olny thing that I have is circuit diagrams but I work in PCBWizard so I don't know if that can help you.
