My First... Blind MicroCore
Where to start. Recently I have once again picked up my love for Electronics and decided to branch into the facinating field of robotics. While researching etc etc, I came across BEAM. Well this got me inspired and this is the result.
Unfortunately however I have come to a bit of a standstill as my multimeter took an unfortunate dip in some water so I have to wait for my replacement so I can test some of the motor driver output values (as I suspect the current is too low to effectively to drive the motors)
Anyway, This bot is dumb. Its blind, deaf and - well - stupid but since it is simply experimental to get familiar with BEAM, then thats fine by me. I am still constructing the chassis and the gearbox(s) for the motors as they are some old salvage parts from cd/dvd drives and thus turn a 'little' far for a walker.
While waiting I decided to sort out my gear's and start construction of the chassis.
Final bot will be a 4 legged walker, with the 3rd motor (the barrel one) being used for hip movement - at least thats the plan.
