Let's Make Robots!

first robot on my own

TurtleDuino

Hi, I'm new to robotics and this forum. I've always wanted to build a robot but did not know where to start, until I stumbled on this site looking for parts for a R/C car and thought it would be a good idea to finally build my firs robot.

So, I got all my gear (tools) together and off I went into my caveman and started building my first robot. I decided to start with a simple obstacles avoiding robot project using the famous Arduino UNO. I'm going to name it The TurtleDuino because if all goes to plans it will look like a turtle.

Yay! n00b :)

Yay! I'm really excited to have finally joined this site. I've been reading for the past week and LMR has really helped out sort the kinks in my design.

I'm an EE major, so I lourve robots. For my career, I reallllly want to work on making robotic prosthetics for the disabled.
