krOnchBot - guiding my first steps into robotics
Hi! I am a recent robotic hobbyist and started learning this week only. So pardon my simple designs. With the limited time and material that I have at my disposal, I was able to make this current robot. The basic structure rests on a computer "mouse" to which I have added few CDs as wheels. I call this "krOnchBot" - which is a character of Hindu mythology - mouse of Lord Ganesh. Thus compiling the east and the west.
- 1 x Arduino uno
- 1 x Servo
- 1 x L293D motor driver
- 2 x Geared motors
- 1 x Sharp GP2D12 analogue distance sensor
- 1 x Computer mouse
- 4 x CDs
- 2 x Bottle cans
- 2 x Batteries (9V, 6V)
- 1 x Battery holder
- 2 x Battery connector
- 6 x Jumper wires: male to male
- 1 x USB cord
- 1 x Glue gun
- 1 x Soldering iron
- and a little bit of imagination.

Just be sure that sometimes the code for motors need a change as one might connect them to alternate motors.
Thanks to all the community members for their vluable posts and detailed model designings. Hope to make something better and useful.
