Let's Make Robots!

What wrong with my code???

#include <Servo.h>

Servo myservoL;
Servo myservoR;
int myservo = 2;
int myAngle;
int pulseWidth;

void setup()
  pinMode(myservo, OUTPUT);

void servoPulse(int myservo, int myAngle)
  pulseWidth = (myAngle *10) + 600;
  digitalWrite(myservo, HIGH);
  digitalWrite(myservo, LOW);


looks like an interesting new Arduino robot platform. A real 4 wheel-drived robot with Atmega168 processor, Zigbee interface, quadrature encoder wheel encoders.

Sorry, embedding Video from Flickr doesn't seems to work, so here are the links:

Transmiting Video/ serial data

Well after seeing Jim lovells updated bot i've decided i want my next project to go towards that direction. Sorry i still dont know how to link the post right but its here, http://letsmakerobots.com/node/6820. And starting either next year or in a few weeks ill be be the president and founder of our schools new robotics club : ), i think for the first meeting i would want to show a bot that would demonstrate a wide range of tech.


Short movie about weird people, not everything is about robot, but still one of the guys build a giant quadrupod.

Would these parts work well with Arduino

I'm doing some shopping on sparkfun.com and I've come across a few things I want to buy to try out with Arduino. I would like some feedback from the people that worked with these components on the quality and ease of use of these products. Any suggestions are also welcome.

QRD1114 on picaxe too slow for wheel encoder...

I am trying to use QRD1114 in trying to encode wheel rotation. Even at the slow speed the QRD1114 can't detect the dark and white strips on the wheel fast enough. My setup is like the one on HVW (>here<) with some changes on the circuit. I have 4.8V rechargeable battery for the V+, and I changed the resistor values to make it detect dark and white. The 10kohm to 420ohm and 330ohm to 220ohm. It sends a high when white is in front and low on black but its too slow. Is everything wrong?

Robotic Crane using PIC16f or 8051

hey! i'm planning to make a robotic crane.and i reallly need help.

the basic idea is to build a robot WITH PIC16F877A (OR 8051) which carries magnetic loads(it has other auxilliary functions as well)
