Arduino Spider





Introduction: Arduino Spider

This is my 1st upload so it probably isn't the best, I will upload the code I am using and a video showing how it works within the next couple days

Step 1: Parts

I used an arduino UNO rev3, a ping sensor and a spider bot from radio shack. You will need to know how to solder and some programming basics

Step 2:

I soldered the ping sensor to a small board for convenience

Step 3:

I removed the top to the spider and the processor chip inside just leaving the wires to the motors attached. I soldered longer wire onto the wires coming off of the motors There is two motors that control the spider - rotation - leg movement

Step 4:

I zip tied a plastic mount onto the top of the spider for the arduino to sit on

Step 5:

Each motor connects to a pwm and a digital output on the arduino

Step 6:

The ping sensor sits on top of the arduino and plugs into 5v,gnd, and the sig plugs into digital 7

Step 7:

The whole thing runs off of 1 9v battery connected to the arduino

    It's a hexbug.

    fantastic project! is there any way you could post the coding you used? Im interested in doing something similar but have never used pwm on the arduino
