With this robot, you control everything with your hand, even the robotic arm!

The hand gestures can be programmed differently.

Long range with Xbee communcation!

<p>could you write to me the tools you used ?</p><p>thank you very much for help:)</p>
<p>Every tool I used is listed above :)</p>
<p>could we use bluetooth instead of zigbee </p>
<p>Yes, that is definitely possible! </p>
<p>hi sir, i have almost same robot car project with you but for wireless comunication i used nrf24l01. Where the rear wheels in the form of a dc motor is controlled with flex sensors and front wheels in the form of a servo motor controlled by the accelerometer sensor. Robot controller with a car connected with nrf24l01. if one of the sensors to control I can. but if it combines both to control I can not. Both sensors transmit data simultaneously . dc motors and servo motors confused receive data so that its movement is chaotic. How should I fix this? can you help me.? Can I send my program to you and you see.? Please. My email: rema_adhe@yahoo.com</p>
<p>Where did you get the plexiplate and what are the sizes you have it cut to?</p>
<p>hi, were are doing the same project but no values are coming in the Arduino </p><p>and the motor rotates but little bit then it stops.</p>
<p>Hi!</p><p>Sorry for the late reply. If you haven't figured it out yet, try to begin with establish a reliable connection between the arduino and the xbee without any motors connected to the arduino. </p>
Hello can i buy this project ?
<p>You mean you want to buy the the complete robot?</p>
<p>How do I bit bang with the xbee?</p>
<p>I don't even know what that is actually, sorry...</p>
<p>May i know what ur problem statement?</p>
<p> i use joy stick instead of flex sensors doesnt work please help</p>
<p>please can any one tellthe cost of this project</p>
<p>can iknow the project cost</p>
<p>Controlled by handgesture?!Amazing!But if your robot arm can be controlled in more ways,that would be greater.I hope I can get a robot arm that can be controlled by voice and by gesture.</p>
<p>Controled by gesture is a great achieve! Do you want to get a multi-controled robot arm? you might konw how to build one in here:</p><p><a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Build-a-multi-controlled-high-precision-desktop-ro/" rel="nofollow">https://www.instructables.com/id/Build-a-multi-cont...</a></p>
<p>cool project!</p>
Great project! Works very well, but the servos can get glitchy sometimes. The voltage regulator has to dissipate a lot of power and easily fries because of all the current it receives. I'd suggest using a fairly large heat sink on it, adding a few resistors beforehand to create a voltage drop, or even replacing it with a switching regulator. And you can easily program a hand gesture to switch between arm and robot mode instead of using a button
<p>Hi friend, thank you for sharing this </p><p>i have 2 Xbee modules, 2 arduino mega boards, 2 Xbee sparkfun shields, and 1 Xbee explorer dongle. Can i manage configuring both Xbee modules using only 1 explorer dongle?! </p>
<p>hey </p><p>i tried making it its not working....</p><p>HELP</p>
<p>can you explain more specific what's not working?</p>
<p>will the car work with a 10 rpm 12v motor ?<br>cuz i tried putting a 12 v motor but both the servo n the 12v 10rpm dc motor are not working <br></p>
<p>Which RPM the motors have dosent matter. Do you drive the motors with the H-bridge? And are the H-bridge powered with external 12V? <br>Regarding the servo, you must power this also with an external power source because arduino wont manage to deliver right amount of power to the servo.</p>
I don't know whether the Xbee is interacting between one another or its the problem of the motor.<br>I'm using a 12V DC motor of 10 RPM.<br>Does it really make a difference?
<p>does it matter if the flex sensors are smaller in lenght for example 5.5cm? is there a difference between the sensors that you used which i think there are 11cm in length and some sensors that are 5.5cm? or the only differenceis justt the length?</p>
the min and max parameters change according to your result in the flex sensor arduino program.<br>check this out:<br>bildr.org/2012/11/flex-sensor-arduino/<br><br>This worked for me.
Cool it's like the power glove!
<p>Hey can i use 2.2&quot; flex sensor instead of 4.5&quot;.</p>
<p>Yes, sure you can! It does not depend on the actual size of the flex sensor. But what you have to do then is to change the paramters for the max and min bend values.</p>
<p>can you plz tell me new parameters for the max and min bend values for 2.2&quot; sensor</p>
I loved your project, my friend.<br>I want to clarify two things.<br>What is the difference between ZigBee interface board and the xbee dongle?<br>Is there any similarity between the dongle and the Xbee explorer?<br>Or are all the components the same?
<p>No I think they are exactley the same. </p>
do I need to remove the Atmega chip from the arduino while mounting the xbee shield in both cases?<br>if done so, should I connect the reset and ground on the arduino and mount the shields or not?
<p>Nice , Just in the future I would like that instructables site owners add the source code preview in the website , it would be awesome , Don't you think =P</p>
<p>I have the source code in the end of the instructable instead, I think it is there it belongs to be, and in a separate file.</p>
can I pick up simple objects like ball or little boxes?
<p>Yes, but it depends on how big the objects are. I mean the gripper is quite strong but the limitation is that the gripper cant open up more than 5 cm. (so unfortunately not beer carry compatible)</p>
<p>How workable would this project be with the idea of using a Raspberry Pi instead of Arduino boards?</p>
<p>It would absolutely be workable with a Rasperberry Pi instead!</p>
<p>cool. it could be for making a wheel chair controlled by hand..</p>
<p>awesome! nice instructable .. :D btw, how much does all this project materials cost?? :/</p>
misqu plz help me. i need yr help in another project. i am a 13y old kid who likes to make projects using arduino. mow i am stuck in a project. plz conyact me with .<br>whatsapp-+91 9164569398<br>kik-navneetcsg<br>if u r not there in both inform me. i ll make an account in which u r in.
<p>Very cool!</p>
<p>Very cool! looks sturdy and is very compact. Just gotta find the time to make one.</p><p>Keep up the good work :D</p>
<p>Thanks! Yes, its either the time or the money that is the problem when building things;)</p>
<p>Great! A cool addition would be an accelerometer.</p>
<p>That would be cool yes, I'll write it down in the &quot;next upgrade&quot; book!</p>
