Let's Make Robots!


drives around guided by IRremote

My first robot! Built from an Arduino UNO, some Lego I had lying around, and a couple of 9g servos... The IR and remote have been scavenged from a remote controlled light bulb, which is why it has so many nice colors. I'm still fumbling around with the code - I might need some help with that at some point. That's it for now, as I mainly made this to just see if I could. I'll probably take it apart again soon and reuse the parts for something more interesting I guess.

Thanks! The main thing about the Lego is really that it's versatile and convenient, and lets face it who hasn't played with Lego as a kid!??

111swords: Nice use of the Lego yourself! But what is it driving and running that thing? 

Thats awesome, I do that all the time this is mine 

I love the use of Lego, and the solderless breadboard as main chassis body.

Is that a 9g servo driving the rear wheels? Did you "hack" it? Pretty cool, makes them even better value.

It sure is! I was very surprised at how easy it was done in fact! Even though it was my first ever time using a solder iron! Just follow this tutorial: http://letsmakerobots.com/node/259 - He doesn't lie when he claims it only takes 15 minutes either!
