With modularized mechanical structures, electronic modules, and Arduino programming, I made this aulminium alloy robot with Makeblock. (Now they are on Kickstarter, and many super-value kits are available.)
Tools needed: Screw drivers and a plier.
The tank is two motor drived. So I first need to make two motors possible to be installed onto the beam structure. First solder the wires and the ...
Two 90T wheels with shaft connector needs to be installed onto the motors. Two 90T wheels and twelve 66T wheels with flange bearing are needed.
Beams with different length Tracks screws plates wheels motors tools
Connect two beams with a plate to make a long beam.
90T wheels were installed on the end, while the 66T wheels installed in the middle.
Make sure all the wheels fastened.
The track is chainable, so that I can change the length per needed.
The basic tank is ready. if you add the drivring circuits and a Microcontroller, it is controllable.
I also prepared the robot arm and hand for the tank.
The arm was driven by a geared DC motor with timing belt. The servo can be used to control the robot hand.
I also prepared the Arduino compatible electronic modules. They can drive 3 DC motors, two servos, and be controllable remotely by infrared controller.
I haven't finished the progrmming and test. Once finished, more videos will be posted here. Just keep an eye on it. Have fun!
