Let's Make Robots!

mini mule

just a robot i built from junk laying around for right now it avoids objects in its path. plans for it are pretty much to use it to test new sensors,coding, hardware, control methods, ect...


it is propelled by 4 gm type motors which are hotglued to wheels from a NewBright r/c truck

those are controlled by a L298N motor driver from ebay. $6.38 with free shipping from the US, cant beat that

and that is controlled by a clone Arduino pro mini 5v

current sensor in use is a parallax Ping)))

and the whole deal is powered by a 4AA pack.


the chassis is a combination of old game case, wood, popsicle sticks, and hot glue.
