Arduino kit for a robot project!!
« on: July 14, 2012, 02:04:11 AM »
I am developing a robot for a robot competition and since i am familiar with arduino platform I am going to use that. But no off-shelf kits are allowed for this competition and that means i cant use my arduino mega board for this task. Guidelines specify that everything must be build by competitors alone. Is there a way to build my own arduino kit for my robot. I need few inputs and outputs only.

Hi,

Yes, the Arduino is open source and you can find schematics etc. on the Arduino site.

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

The Arduino has a lot of wonderful electronic "glue" that makes tinkering easy. The good news is you only need a minimal amount of circuitry to run the Amtel microcontroller without the whole Arduino package.

This will allow you to develop with the Arduino but still be able to be 100% home built. It also requires a lot less space.

The Arduino hacking page is http://arduino.cc/en/Hacking/HomePage.

An example of a minimal crystal-driven microcontroller setup is http://itp.nyu.edu/physcomp/Tutorials/ArduinoBreadboard.
