Let's Make Robots!

First robot (Hectic)

Navigate around via ultrasound.


This post is just one of the first steps of my build.
I have made my robot's housing ready for powdercoating.







UPDATE 15-2-2013

Servo's arrived this day.


UPDATE 27-2-2013

Old housing in a new colour.


UPDATE 3-3-2013

 Today I made some wheels. The rubberband acts as a tire.


 UPDATE 24-5-2013

I thought it would be nice to make a sort of prototype first before I instal it in the powdercoated case. This way I can see if I am happy with the sketch and if there are things I would like to chance.
The second video shows the prototype. (It does show a mess of wires and a not so stable wheel. :P) 

UPDATE 29-5-2013

I did chance my code a little bit and I like this one better then the previous one.


UPDATE 31-5-2013

Here are some pictures of what I did to make all the components fit in the case. 

This connectors should make it easyier to connect the sensor while the arduino is in the case.

The HC-SR04 with the conectors soldered.


The battery connector and the arduino jack soldered to the switch.

The case with the servo's glued on and some kind of acrylic or something just to make it look nicer.

The ballcastors.

The robot is not finished yet but did finished the code. I hope i can post video's and pictures of the finished robot soon. 

 UPDATE 7-6-2013

Yesterday I did finished my robot.

Here are some pictures of Hectic:

Sorry for the pictures being sideways. I don know how to turn them. :P

In the last video you will see the finished robot.

At first welcome to LMR.

Looking forward to see your robot in progress.

Goed om nog een nederlander te zien op LMR! (Good to see another Dutchman on LMR).

Keep on building!

Ook ik vind het leuk om nog een nederlander te zien :P (I am glad to see another Dutchman too.)

 nog een Hollander hier haha..

Gaan wij ooit LMR over nemen? xD

more pictures please(and video!), will be waitin' for progress...

This picture shows the progress until now.
I will post pictures and video's as soon as possible. I have not posted any beacause i don't have more pictures and video's yet.


Hey Lars. Welcome to LMR. I am curious to see this housing evolve into a working robot.

I have to admit that i'm curious about that too.

You can replace the "tires" rubber band by "O" ring gasket like that


that can be more efficient on the floor, and also more aesthetic

That is a good idea thank you.
