Let's Make Robots!

My Start Here Robot V.2.1

Navigates via sonar, Sharp IR and avoids all obstacles

****Update 4-6-09****

Polymorph head ,IR extension and side panels!!!


IR extension


 **Coming soon - Speaker,  LED'S and MORE POLYMORPH!**


Just my first start here robot with SRF05 for obstacle avoidance and the Sharp IR so it doesnt fall into any holes! For now i plan on adding a speaker and a few more leds but eventually want to make it much smaller so it can navigate my desk and add self charging capabilities.

I like it, especially his compact look!

well build bot..

compact..i like compact..

u could put the sharp sensor a bit closer just outside,above the srf05.


great work..

It's great getting a robot to avoid falling off an edge, good job. It seems though, that this is using a long range Sharp, GP2Y0A02YK or something, within it's minimum range. Doesn't this Sharp have a strange behavior within 8" (20cm) ?
Thanks. Ya it did at first (its a 2Y0A02) but i added a 10uf elec cap right to the back of the sensor and although its really sensitive at that range it still works great.
Ah, a robot that won't try and kill itself by driving off the edge of a table... very nice work!
looks great, never thought of using a sharp as an edge detector.
Funnyyy :)
