Using the extra base section cut at the beginning you can add a servo and sonar device for greater ranging abilities.

You will need:

Servo (not modified)
SRF04 or 08 with servo mount from Acroname (www.acroname.com)
Spare base section

Cut a hole in the front edge of the plywood just large enough for the servo to fit into.

Install plywood over the long standoffs and secure with some 4-40 nuts. You will need to countersink the bottom side of the holes to allow the entire standoff diameter to fit in them about 1/8 inch so that the threads stick up far enough.

Install the servo, sonar mount and sonar.

Hook the servo to oopic servo port 29 and wire the sonar to the pins as shown in the oopic users manual. You will have to use the sample code in the IDE to test it as I have not written any yet... Battery died.

You can add many levels for add ons if you want simply by cutting and drilling more pieces of plywood and adding standoffs.

Add more sensors like the QRB1134 to make your bot a line follower.

Have fun and build more bots! You can email me on or off list for help.

I will add video shortly. I am on dialup and have to drive 20 miles to town to get to high speed.

Hi , i am from india and i want to know where can i get the parts of robbot because i can't afford t buy anything from abroad
Same problem here too,bro.. <br>its not about the affordability, they wont just ship you some common parts!! :( <br>And its very hard to find 'em in India! :( <br>
<p>Same here dude, if something is very hard to find in India then its nearly impossible to find it in Bihar ( kya yaar )</p>

<br>Hi can i get the programming part of this robot its awesome please ramyashree2612@gmail.com please reply to my mail
<br>Hi can i get the programming part of this robot its awesome please ramyashree2612@gmail.com please reply to my mail
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAS READ, COMMENTED OR FAVORITED MY SSBR 'IBLE. WOW, NEARLY 100,000 VIEWS! COOL! <br> <br>I am working on an updated version even as I type this... please fav me so you can see it pop up in a few days. <br> <br>Thanks again. Oh, and thank you special, Nicole.

Good day, I am stephen k. Paul, I live in Nigeria. Am so much interested in robotics, but unfortunately for me, I can't lay my hands on some components. So pls if you guys can help me get some robot stuffs, I will be glad. If u accept my request pls reply me and then I will give you full details of myself. Alot of people needs these robots but only few builders are available who cannot lay their hands on components.pls I need your help to help others. Thanks.
<p>cool i too am a nigerian tho i live in the caribbean.bless the lord.i have an old computer power source but i dont no what to do with it. ask random people for old appliances.you find many awesome things with those.</p>
<p>Very interesting, really got me into robotics!</p>
<p>can you say which software should i use to write the program ? </p>
<p>i just made an account to favorite it..</p><p>cant wait till u get updated version :D</p>
Where do u get the parts?can u give us a website?And about how much does it cost?
News version coming soon....
Where should I paste these source codes?
Unless you accidentally have an oopic and IDE for it, the source code is not longer usable. Arduino version coming soon...
did you model it after a boe bot? thats awsome
LOL The first rendition of the SSBR was waaaay before the Boe...
Is this a wall avoiding robot??
Obstacle, in general.
Please give me a link to bye all these parts <br>
I am redoing this 'ible with updated parts... coming soon.
Thank you!
nice robot real... <br>
Thank you!
is this how to &quot;modify the servo&quot; <br> <br>http://www.simkits.com/downloads/documents/Modify%20a%20servo%20HS-322.pdf
you will make it easy
what is a Dubro .20-.40 RC Airplane Tailwheel assmbly because it is the only thing i haven't got!THNX!
V666,<br> <br> You will find it in the pictures and in the assembly instructions. If you need to&nbsp;buy one try this link for the <strong>bracket --&gt;</strong> <a href="http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXD850&P=7">http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&amp;I=LXD850&amp;P=7</a> and this link for the <strong>wheel --&gt;</strong> <a href="http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXD811&P=M">http://</a><a href="http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXD811&P=M">www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&amp;I=LXD811&amp;P=M</a> . Both are usually available in any good local hobby store.<br> <br> Don't forget, you can use any microcontroller that you have to control this robot. Let me know if you need help when it gets to that point.<br> <br> I always enjoy a new&nbsp;rating... (hint) lol&nbsp;<br> <br> BB
Hi BIGBUG <br> <br>you say we can use any microcontroller we want? Will your code work with an arduino?
Sure, although not sure why you would wanna use one... but hey that is just me. <br> <br>Check this out --&gt; http://oopicraptor.blogspot.com/
Oopic seems to be a lot more expensive than the arduino, and pretty much dead as far as commercial support/development goes.<br> <br> These days you can build a functioning USB based Arduino for under $5 (~2.50 if you do without the USB to UART).&nbsp; See http://shrimping.it/blog for more info.&nbsp; If you can do this project then you can probably build the Shrimp too pretty easily.
i need your help ASAP
The referenced website above it just a web development company. Nowhere to order robotic parts. <br> <br>I like this project and I've been wanting to get in to robotics and Arduino.
for what this robots is mainly used for?
I'd say for fun. But they may develop into some project which really does useful stuff. It's only limited by one's imagination.
for this kind of robots are mainly used for?
Just a note for my fans... I have started the process of kitting this robot. All aluminum chassis, ooPic basic language controller and a built in speech system. <br> <br>Watch my website for details: http://babblebot.net
i want to make this in a pc mouse housing, im going to use dc motor and i was wondering if you could help me with the elektric part cuz im good in programing.<br>so i need the brai to be small. could you like tell me which one to get or how to make it?? THX
have u got a simpler robot than this as i need to make 1 in school for a project.
Yes I do, several matter of fact. <br> <br>What do you want, SIMPLE or CHEAP? <br> <br>What do you want it to do? <br> <br>What do you know about robotics? <br> <br>What do you know about programming? <br> <br>What is the goals? <br> <br>Answer by private message please <br> <br>BIGBUG
OK, followers and the lucky passers by... there have been a few comments that indicate that this robot project could be even more simple.<br> <br> I will leave it up to you, the viewer.<br> <br> Tell me what you want in a <em><strong>Super Simple (CHEAP) Beginners Robot</strong></em> and I will do a brand new <strong>'ible</strong> on it.<br> <br> You have until December 8th, 2010 to either respond to this comment or send me a message on <strong>'ibles</strong>... Do your best.<br>
