Take this glass to the kitchen RB-1
« on: May 05, 2009, 04:08:53 PM »
O.k, i want to make a robot that takes my glass from the living room to the kitchen then return and wait for a glass to be placed on the top again. I don't think it would take any mapping because i could just program it to go like 10feet forward 4 feet to the right ect.
So does any know how i could make something like this? I would like to spend like 30 bucks.
Thanks
robothehobo
P.S: IT'S NAME IS RB-1........ITS A COOL NAME, I KNOW

Build the $50 robot first, it will teach you how to make robots (and is easily converted in to the robot  you want to make)

what do you need then?
A stronger chassis?
more programming?
If you dont need any mapping than you dont even need the light sensors on the $50 robot that you have built
Since you say that you can just program it to move the required distances than you cant need more programming help so it's just a stronger chassis.

The only upgrade for your $50 robot I could suggest would be wheel encoders to be able to program the distances more accurately.

i would say the sensors could still be useful in the fact that what if somebody dropped something and the robot is going to crash thus spilling/breaking the glass...

well learn!
go to www.cplusplus.com
you can learn some basic c++ there
then you can figure out how to convert that to c (really, it isn't that hard. just don't use a few commands)
then figure out the "robot-unique functions(also with a good funtion library, it isn't hard)

I have no idea if the mouse thing would work

the mouse thing would work, search the web!
many people use old mouses for parts on their robots!

food for thought: What happens when the sensor drifts? (all sensors drift)
