Roboduino Bot
« on: December 25, 2010, 02:46:14 AM »
Hey guys,

I would like to know what kind of robots i can build with these parts in hand without spending any more money. I think i can build a object avoidance bot, A chase bot, a bot that moves closer to the nearest object. I was just wondering if i could build something like an adaptive mapping bot i.e. like it creates a map and then just uses it to move around really quickly instead of using any IR etc. Is that possible? Eagerly waiting to get started. ;D

I have the following parts:
1) A Roboduino
2) 3 x HS-425BB Deluxe Servos
3) GP2D12 Sharp IR Sensor
4) A Tenergy 7.2V Battery ( which i will regulate to 6V)

I also wanted to know what does the reset button on the roboduino do. Is there anyway to copy the bootloader from the 168 on my roboduino and store it or something on my comp so that i could upload it on a 328 or something?

THNX

You can build an adaptive mapper, you will just have some accuracy problems, as you lack encoders.  Well, this is assuming you do have wheels (not listed). 

Take a look at Admin's Wavefront tutorial, it's great for beginners.

The reset button interrupts and restarts your program.  It's generally used as an alternative to disconnecting and then reconnecting the battery.

You don't need to copy the bootloader - its on your computer already.  Use a hardware programmer to write it from the Arduino IDE to the ATMega328, or put the ATMega328 on a breadboard and use the Roboduino as a programmer (will require a number of passive components).

You will also need a base for your robot, though a cardboard box would work just as well as a fancy laser-cut chassis in the short term =).

You could make a robot capable of motion tracking i believe

thnx guys, i am going to use a plastic base and some mini cds as wheels. Anyway i guess i will be making an object avoidance bot as this is my first ever build and then i'll try the mapping stuff.
