This is the third part of our BaW-Bot (Bells-and-Whistles Bot) build – 5 separate instructables that look into different Arduino-related technologies, combining to create a Bot with all the bells-and-whistles.
Part 1: Build an Arduino on a Board
Part 2: Build the motor-controller & body
Part 3: Adding Sight and Touch
Part 4: Blinging up the BaW-Bot
Part 5: Taking it to the Next Level
In this instructable, we’ll be giving our Bot some freedom by adding sensors to keep it safe. We’ll be adding an ultrasonic sensor (“eyes”) as well as 2 lever microswitches (“whiskers”). We’ll also be building a “leash” so that we can keep it out of trouble while we develop the bot.
