This instructable will walk you through building a robot with color recognition using a camera and a servo. The robot i will build has servos for arms also, but they aren't necessary. Use your imagination on how you want to build your robot.
You may not be able to find the same shell. So I suggest visiting a thrift store and find a robot to use as a shell. Pick one that will suit your needs.
Here are the parts used in this robot:
- 1 x EZ-B Bluetooth Robot Controller: http://www.ez-robot.com
- 1 x GWS Standard Servo for head: http://www.hvwtech.com/products_view.asp?ProductID=878
- 2 x GWS Standard Servo for arms: http://www.hvwtech.com/products_view.asp?ProductID=878
- 1 x USB Webcam
The software is EZ-Builder, available here: http://www.ez-robot.com/EZ-Builder
I suggest watching the video before attempting to build your robot. That will give you an idea of what to expect in the next steps.
Step 1: Get the hardware
I always hook up the hardware to the circuit board to verify it works before i build a robot. In this step, i connect the servos to the board, and simply make them move.
Yay it works!
