Picture of Simple bot V1
Category for the National Robotics Week Robot Contest: Open (23 years)

Hi, this is my first vibrabot so I accept suggestions.

The robot was designed to be carried out in 15 minutes made with parts that were recovered from various electronic equipment.

This is the video of the bot in action and some descriptions of it, please enjoy.

Also don't forget comment and vote.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
This are the materials and tools used in the construction.

2 Switches
2 Motors ( they have to be different in size or in the metal weight to archive the goal of two modes).
1 9V Battery
1 Connector for the 9v battery
2 pieces of metal or whatever is handy to be used as legs for the robot.
soldering tin
Some wire

wire stripping
electrical tape
masking tape
soldering iron
Also one third hand can be useful but not is required

Step 2: Wiring

Picture of Wiring
For this step we use the schematic diagram of the robot, this schematic is very simple.

first use some of the cable into the terminals of the motors in order to facilitate connections, care must be taken when stripping the cable from the other because this is very thin and can break easily.

second we connect the battery connector to the switch on-off and this with the mode selection switch finally add the wire to the motors.

Finally connect the motors to the switches to complete the circuit.

Recommendation: In this step is recommended that the person performing the welding be careful with the hot tip of the soldering iron because it can produce a painful burn (I know from experience), so it is recommended that the mentor perform this step instead of children.

can i use a remote+receiver on the on/off switch to make the bot remote activated?

sure, you just have to take into consideration that the receptor has any control circuit with a switch that fulfills the function on and off and if the circuit have the ability to control more than one switch, that extra switch could be used to control mode of the robot.
