Introduction: DIY RACING ROBOT USING DPDT

About: electronics and technology

ITS ALWAYS FUN TO MAKE ROBOTS USING DPDT SWITCHES SO LETS BEGIN WITH THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE ROBOT AND ITS REQUIREMENTS

SO I MADE A ROBOT WHICH WILL RUN IN 12V SUPPLY AND WILL CROSS THE OBSTACLES AND WILL REACH THE DESTINATION QUICKLY

IF SO ANY DOUBTS IN MAKING THE VIDEO CHECK MY YOUTUBE VIDEO IN HOW TO MAKE THE RACING ROBOT

SO LETS START OUT

Step 1: CHECK FOR COMPONENTS

THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE COMPONENTS AND I HAVE PROVIDED THE RESPECTIVE LINKS TO GET THE PRODUCTS

DPDT SWITCHES AND BOX http://amzn.to/2BM3Et1

WHEELS http://amzn.to/2BxMb3v

12V BATTERY http://amzn.to/2BvQKLw

300 RPM DC MOTORS http://amzn.to/2BH7cg6

EXTENSION WIRES http://amzn.to/2D6NV3T

ROBOT CHASSIS http://amzn.to/2zp7rGw

Step 2: MAKE THE DPDT CONNECTIONS

CHECK THE WIRING FOR THE DPDT SWITCHES AND CONNECT TWO SWITCHES IN SAME WAY

AND CONNECT THE OTHER TWO ENDS IN THE BATTERY

AT LAST CHECK FOR PERFECT CONNECTIONS AND FOR ANY SHORT CIRCUIT IN THE SWITCH

IF THERE IS A SHORT CIRCUIT ENSURE FOR PROPER HOLDING OF WIRE

Step 3: EXTEND THE WIRES AND MAKE THE ROBOT

EXTEND THE WIRES FROM THE SWITCHES AND BATTERY TO THE MOTORS OF THE ROBOT

AND CONNECT IT TO THE ROBOT

CONNECT THE WHEELS TO THE ROBOT AND MAKE THE ROBOT AS SUCH IN THE MENTIONED PICTURE

MAKE THE PARALLEL CONNECTIONS TO THE MOTORS OF THE ROBOT AND SOLDER THEM WELL

Step 4: CHECK FOR RIGHT BATTERY

USE 12V LIPO BATTERY OR LEAD ACID BATTERY BECAUSE THEY CAN BE EASILY RECHARGED AND WILL PROVIDE U A LOT OF AMP HOURS

FOR MORE AMOUNT OF STANDBY AND FOR EASY CHARGING AND DISCHARGING USE LIPO OR LEAD ACID BATTERY

Step 5: CHECK FOR CONTROLS

Before designing control wired we have to learn basic movement of robot which is shown in following table.

Movements Motor1 (left) Motor2(right)

For moving forward Clockwise Clockwise

For moving backward Anticlockwise Anticlockwise

For turning left Off Clockwise

For turning right Clockwise

Step 6: ALL DONE

NOW U ROCK WITH THE NEW DPDT RACING ROBOT
