Using Arduino Uno for the 50$ robot
« on: March 23, 2012, 06:21:02 PM »
Hey guys,

i I was just wondering if its possible to use Arduino uno to implement the 50$ Robot with SHARP IR sensors, is there any Arduino functions that would replace the ATMega8 code Admin wrote
in separate files.  Also, how would you send a specific pulse to a servo, would you use the digitalWrite and the delay command? Thank you

It is.

Just make a program to do the same thing. I'm sure you can find plenty of examples at either Arduino.cc or the Arduino code repository.


Also, how would you send a specific pulse to a servo, would you use the digitalWrite and the delay command? Thank you
There's plenty of servo libraries fr the Arduino. Get one of them an read the documentation.

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?

Here is the code that can just copy into arduino IDE

i understand how it works using the Servo.h library, but i need to convert 'Admin's' code for the SHARP IR rangefinder $50 robot, not the photoresistor $50 robot, into arduino. Also, if you have done the project using sharp ir, can you explain please what the scan_angle values 30 to 57 represent, and where does 'scan_angle>41' comes in ??? thank you
