Let's Make Robots!

Robot project

hey

I was planing to build a robot with arduino mega for my project.

it shold do 3 main tasks. line following,obstical ditecting,arrow following

but my they are saying that i cant u any developed board like arduno..

but for my project i need arround 12-16 analog inputs.(ir sensors,compass,sonar)

1)can any one tell me what chip shoud i choose or how can i make a board like arduno for my work?(i was thinking to use 2560 inbult adc)

2)also need help with detecting arrows.

thanks.
plz reply soon

I have bootloaded ATmega1284P-PU's using maniacbugs bootloader. It's very easy, you install some files in the Arduino IDE and then bootload it the same way you would bootload an ATmega328P. You just select a different bootloader in the IDE. I designed a simple PCB to play with the ATmega1284P-PU http://www.bajdi.com/?attachment_id=472

Thanks very much.
Thanks very much.
Yes I can use my own one. But I don't know how to make it. If u can sen me a link or any help that ll b Great.
What I ment by arrow is there will black color arrow shape drownings will be on the floor. My robo need to detect them follow. Other thin I cannot use Ardiuno or any developed boards Can any one suggest me a good chip for this. Thanks

Can you design your own board based on a chipset from a developed board?

eg. Buying a Amtel atmega1284P, Bootloading it, building the circuit etc?

 

Hi skip Yes I can use my own one. But I don't know how to make it. If u can sen me a link or any help that ll b Great. It doesn't matter pic even.what I want is I need to keep microchip on robo while am progaming. It's better if I can get output to Monitor while developing. Btw am using i2c interface Thanks for helping out.

It's got a few links and a blog about a guy building a circuit on the 1284P.

Hope it helps
