Jeep Mr Basic
As this is my first robot, the general idea was building something based on fritsl's "Start here project". But with some addings and trying to use recycled parts whenever I can. The "decorative" part was made by a team formed by my 6 year old son and me.
The first step once I got my Mr Basic chassis, was the motor driver using guibot's design (http://letsmakerobots.com/node/2074):
Then I fixed a plastic box (got from a curtain's package and its size was perfect!) to hold the 9V battery and Arduino duemilanove:
Then I transformed my corn flakes box into a Jeep cover, Servo included.
The next step was mounting the Sharp IR sensor and connect all the wires:
And finally I added the LMR flag:
- Add inteligence to "the beast".
- Record and post Video.
- Connect line following sensors.
