My first robot
« on: January 19, 2012, 09:50:36 AM »
Hi, brand new member.  Here's my first robot that I'm currently working on:  there are videos on the blog page showing construction.

This is ClusterBot

I've made some modifications to ClusterBot - I removed the round robot chassis and just used a square piece from a Meccano set.  I've also added Ultrasonic sensor functionality.  I threw a piezo speaker and an LED on him to make him a little more entertaining for the kids.  My 3 year old loves him.  When he doesn't detect an obstacle within the parameters I set, he runs straight and his LED stays on.  When he detect an object, he rotates left, the LED flashes, and the piezo speaker chirps in time with the LED.
