Let's Make Robots!

No Name Yet

Navigate around, obstacle avoidance, light detection, general fun with mys kids and whatever comes in my mind.

This is my first robot. It's mainly for playing aroung with my kids. The base is 20cm in diameter PVC, powered by two GM9 motors, it has a SRF02 mounted on a servo, two IR sensors in the front edge, on top it has an HP printer stepper, inside the ping-pong balls are two RGB LED's, and in the red and green straws it has LDR's. Attached to the motor gearbox it has two modified mouse encoder weels tha will be equiped with quadrature encoders, it will also have 2xCNY70 that can be positioned for line following or floor detection. I also plan to have Xbee communication to a PC for telemetry, planning on adding a compass, a accelerometer. The "brain" is a Arduino MEGA board.

Looks like a nice clean build. Not a hot glue blob insight!

Very cool!  Welcome to the club!  Be sure to post a video too.  I can imagine the lights in the eyes but there's nothing like seeing it.

It's still in the building phase, maybe next week I'll have a video. About the build, I've used only superglue.

maybe you can use YET for the name :P
