First robot idea

I'm new to this website, but have been researching robots for a while, and my ultimate aim is to have a cube shaped robot on 4 wheels which can walk around on its own, and can follow you, with a talking ability if that's possible, any help would be appreciated. Thanks, smiggle

Fast vision sensor for Arduino

It does 50 frames per second and they are "giving it all away" so to speak.  Software, schematics, board layout.... worth a look.

JME Mantzel's robot kit on Kickstarter

Hi everybody!

Just have seen JME Mantzel's robot on Kickstarter. I think it is awesome! :) Here is a related video from his channel on Youtube. Also if you like it, spread the word, as what he's doing is absolutely brilliant! :) I'm totally gettting one to play with as it is hack friendly! :)

Hope this type of ad/spam is acceptable :) Actually I hope to see more great things to take off!

Cheers.

[SOLVED] Strange compilation error

Hi everybody!

I'm making a little robot using Arduino and it works fine (you can see how it works on the embedded video).

The robot walk alone perfectly but today I tried to use an infrared remote with an infrared receptor to use my robot like an RC car, and I had this error at compilation (I'm using IRremote library):

 

core.a(Tone.cpp.o): In function `__vector_7':

D:\Program Files\Arduino\hardware\arduino\cores\arduino/Tone.cpp:535: multiple definition of `__vector_7'

Base for paintball rc robot

Hi! This is my first blogpost here, so bare with me.

This will not be the first robot I build, even though I think it could be done by scavaging parts from different finished products. I'm thinking of building an rc paintball car with a camera on it for navigation. Would something like this be useable? http://www.hobbytron.com/HobbyEnginePremiumLabelConstructionCraneTruck11824GhzRTRRC.html#

Dagu Playful Puppy Robot

Hi, i have bought the Dagu Puppy Robot and built it according to instruction manual. But the hip and feet movings doesn't follow the code. Even if i put the command "return;" in the main loop, the servos still move randomly (please check the video clip).

In the video clip i've plugged out all pins except one for test purposes.

Connecting LEDs to the 8 pins and with suitable code the board works fine. Could anyone help me please?

Swarm Robot build

Hey LMRians!

It's been quite a long time that I haven't been here (mostly due to being in the second last year of school and other projects). Recentlly I got interested in robotics again and I came up with the idea of building swarm robots (just a little group of maybe 10 bots, not 40+ that the universities use).

Here I want to describe my thought process a little and then ask some questions.

So my first goal is to make it relatively small, something of the size like the robots seen in this excellent video by the University of Sheffield (see embedded video below).
