Let's Make Robots!

My first robot

Avoids objects, recognizes objects, and more. Breaks

Newest Update:

Oh my, its been a long time. Well, I'm finally back to programming the little guy after many hours of trial and error. Unfortunantly, he had a bit of a fall and broke one of his power switches and popped off his treads, but thats easy enough to fix, so I hope to have another video of him taking on the living room soon. 

 

 Pictures and a video.

I have started to mount all the components. Here are some pictures:

Treads. They have finnally been added to the robot.It can now move from place to place like a good little robot.

Here is the screen, and here is one of the Sharp sensors. Wheres the other one you ask? Wait and see.

Switches. 2 out of the 3 have been installed. The last one will be a reset pushswitch. For when it tries to take over the world. Or more specificly my living room.

Why, whats that? Its the second sensor. Mounted and angled to look for ledges. Notice the mounting brackts for the tread system.

The mounting system for the bottom two idlers allows me to easily and quickly both adjust the tension on the treads and move the place ment of the individual wheels and over all tread placement. I have already worked out the best setup t distribute the weight effectivly.

reminds me of wall-e

great robot!

thankyou. yes, it does have that wall-e look
i have to say it looks very professional!  i'm a sucker for things that are shiny and clean, hope it all works good, would love a video :)
video! check it out.
The entire thing is so freaking neat! I do not have half the patience you do.. Usually one of my robots lasts about a week and then I take it apart. Why? Because they are ugly :P
lol, thankyou
That's getting more and more promising! Waiting for new updates! Keep up great work!
thankyou.

loving how this is coming together. cant wait to see the head on it. will use this as inspiration for my next bot.

 

wow, thankyou. Glad to have inspired you!
