Let's Make Robots!

Mini Mars Rover

 
Explores the outdoors

This is a little mars rover I built. It is in the early stages but I just added a webcam but is useless until I find some software that lets webcams do colour tracking and image diagnostics. If you know some, please post them in the comments.

Hi RobotGoose!

I'm making an instructable for an easy color tracking! 

You said that you want to know how to..

E-mail me at michael96_27@yahoo.com! :))

Cheers,

Hello, it turns out my email is not working, so could instead of emailing you, I'll have to talk to you in the comments. Sorry about that.

Ok :))

Actually my instructable is not yet done for now. Anyways, you can check out what program we will be using. Here's an introduction to my instructable:

Thanks, I will try it out!

I just tested the robot with the laptop and it works! Now, all I need is to learn how to program the Ping))).

Just use this library to arduino. Its good and easy to use.

I'm testing that now but, also, its a mini laptop that is not so heavy.

my first thought is; will those servos be able to handle the weight of a laptop?
