Let's Make Robots!

The Hennes Family's Yardbot


I am a full time graphic designer, so dreaming is what I do best. I have built small stuff before but this time by luck I came a cross a powered wheelchair real cheap (under $50). So I thought what can I do. Why not build a yard robot. First stage is to build a R/C controlled robot from using an Arduino and the Wheelchairs controller. After the body and the R/C is all working I will look in to making it self mowing and a follow me program.

I will be watching your progress as I too am using an electric wheelchair as my base. I've sold some of the parts I didn't need and I'm up about $200.00 I can apply towards the cost of the bot.
