This is my beetle-bot project.
Makes me want to go to school back :D I just finished my information technology management degree and I don't ever want to see another university for at least 200 years. Nice tutorial though !
I am a total and complete beginner at all robotics, so I was wondering what a beetle bot is and what it does?
I used this website : http://www.robotshop.com/gorobotics/articles/robots/how-to-build-a-simple-robot-beetle-robot.
I saw a robot kind of like this: its called a herbie. The parts for it are dirt cheap (about five dollars tops), plus they are all available @ radioshack.
How did you connect your motors to the wheels? Directly? I have similiar motors and would really like to know if I could just gun it and put wheels directly on them for my brainless linefollower.
While Chuck is a grumpy old man ; - ) he does have a point. You could at least fill out the tags and info boxes for the post. The pictures do a good job of seeing how you re-engineered this toy but a caption or two would help. You seem to be handy on the hardware side, now you just need to exercise some brain muscles and get to grips with this programming. I noticed completely analog design to this one. Heheh. Don't give up on your other project.
I'm still working on it but i have to order some parts, and these's things i had laying somewhere.
he he he :) and that was the edited version
i love how you explains everything in such detail ,lots of info hear NOT!
come on man this is not Facebook , you will get an ass hole like me telling you to TRY HARDER ,
