What did I make?
T.A.B.U. is a crab like robot that runs on the arduino uno micrcontroller. T.A.B.U. stands for "Testable Arduino Based User-system". I developed this robot so that I could continue to learn how to code robotics with a phisical test subject.
How did I make it?
T.A.B.U. runs off of three 9v smoke detector batteries, one for the board and base servo, one for the left claw, one for the right claw. It is a very simple robot to make and is a great entry level project. When you are finished you will have an opensource robot that you can program and add to to suit your needs.
Where did I make this?
I worked in my room. I have a personal workdesk and I have spent countless hours working in there.
What did you learn?
This project really helped me understand how robotics function in a safe and testable enviorment. I want others to have the ability to use my robot to enhance their skills with electronics and robotics.
I recomend that if you have an intrest in Arduino programming you pick up a copy of the "Arduino Cookbook" by Michael Margolis. This is a key to debugging and learning the system.
Well enough of that, let's get started!
