How to build a Talking, Singing and Dancing miniFLoppyBot

See Fig. 0

First, there are three types of robots. Autonomous, Semi-Autonomous and Remote Control. The basic miniFloppyBot is a fully autonomous robot that can also be made into a semi-autonomous or even a remote control robot. Today, we will start with the simplest version, the fully autonomous miniFloppyBot.

Next thing to know is that a robot only does what it is programmed to do unless it breaks down. This is why it is good to start with learning how to build a robot with small plastic parts to eliminate injury and hazards. Later, after you’ve become a Roboteer Wizard you can put your life in danger with larger projects.

The RoboGuts™ kit is the easiest, fastest and most affordable S.T.E.A.M. learning kit available today for the beginner or hobbyist. Because of the universal design, the RoboGuts™ circuit board can use almost any MCU (microController Unit) a small chip or module that is the “brain” of the robot.

The author prefers using the PICAXE 28X2 modules because although they cost about $20/ea. They have a programming port built on them saving money and a ton of space that other chips and modules don’t have and require. They are also fast so that they can perform in most robotic applications.

So, for starters the one time costs might seem a little high, but in the end you can be saving hundreds of dollars and many hours or robot building time.

The RoboGuts™ circuit board costs $15/ea. in the KickStarter campaign. But for this project you should buy the $37 pledge to get some of the other needed components at a reduced price. http://www.R2Pv1.com/

see Fig. 1

The PICAXE 28X2 module costs about $18 and the programming
cable another about $18.

See Fig.2

and

See Fig.3

The two servo motors for the wheels cost about $2/ea. when
you buy ten on eBay.

See Fig. 4

The 3-color LEDs you can get a hundred of them for a about
$5 on eBay.

See Fig. 5

A small speaker about 28mm to 32mm in diameter $3 to $10 for
a pack on eBay

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1W-30mm-Diameter-8-Ohm-Int...

See Fig. 6

The SpeakJet chip normally costs $25 + shipping and
handling, but in the KickStarter campaign they are only $20 on top of the price of the RoboGuts™ circuit board … a real bargain that will save you $5 - $10 on shipping and handling.

See Fig. 8

Lastly, you will need a battery pack of some sort … 6V just
works, but 7V to 9V work best. With the PICAXE 28X2 module you can use a 4.5V to 12V power source depending upon how it’s connected to the module. In this Instructable we will use a 9V radio battery connected to the module Vin pins.

Total robot cost is about $100 for the robot. Luckily you only need one programming cable, you’ll have lots of extra parts for future builds and all the software and lessons are FREE as are the .STL 3D printer files, and I’m guessing you’re going to want to make more robots once you’ve made one to make your own RoboToons Robot Theater productions (http://brainless.org/RoboToons/) and give robot toys to other kids and make all sorts of animatonics gadgets for Halloween, Christmas, Easter etc.

See Fig. 9

What do you end up with after you make all the
connections? A nice small easily built-up RoboGuts™ circuit board ready for programming and testing;

See Fig. 10

From the last photo you can see how to make all the jumper
connections, add a 200Ω – 500Ω resistor to limit the current so the LED doesn’t burn out, although many of the 12V RGB LEDs don’t need a resistor and connect to +V directly.

Looks pretty simple because it is, this is the design of the RoboGuts™ circuit board to make it easy to complete thousands of circuit schematic settings with just a few jumper wires so that you can create and animate all sorts of projects that will talk and sing in any language.

Okay, we got all the basic electronics out of the way. Now before we get started putting it all together it’s best to start printing the plastic parts. For the miniFloppyBot there are only six plastic parts;

One miniFloppyBot body One miniFloppyBot lid One miniFloppyBot face Two miniFloppyBot wheels One miniFloppyBot tail skid

When you buy a RoboGuts™ kit you get access to all the latest, best tweaked design versions of these files.

Lets watch a couple of short movie demos first;

RoboGuts+Lesson X0

RoboGuts™ Lesson-00, 02 and 10 BuildUp

Now you have an idea of what to do lets slow down and go through the steps;

So, lets get started … first we need to load the FREE PICAXE Editor into your PC. You get the latest editor here;

http://www.picaxe.com/Software/PICAXE/PICAXE-Edito...

Plug in the USB end of the PICAXE programming cable into your PC and note the Com port ID.

In the PICAXE editor you goto “Options” and select the Com port for the PICAXE programming cable.

See Fig. 11

With the bare RoboGuts™ circuit board you plug on the PICAXE
28X2 module with the programming port facing outward from the edge of the board.

Add the power connections as shown in Lesson-00

See Fig. 12

With power on the board you can (Battery connected to JP18
on the top right side and either a jumper plug or cable with a switch on JP19 bottom right of the board) you can copy/paste the program listing into the PICAXE Editor and having the programming cable plugged in you click on “Program” to send the program to the 28X2 module.

Now you want to add the 3-color RGB LED and resistor. This is Lesson-02

See Fig. 13

With the 3-color RGB LED installed you can start testing the
LED colors. You can experiment and tweak the program listing

Next add the SpeakJet chip … Lesson-10 be sure to add the jumper plugs to the right side of the SpeakJet chip and one on the Vol of the audio amplifier as well as the three small jumpers on the left side jumper block.

See Fig. 14

With the speaker plugged IN you can now start testing the
audio portion of the program listing.

When you are satisfied that the LEDs, talking and singing is working correctly, then you move onto Lesson-20 the standard servo motor.

See Fig. 15

Looking at the BASIC program listing you will see that the
right wheel motor is on PIN 17 or B.0 of the PICAXE 28X2 module and the left wheel motor is on PIN 18 or B.1 of the PICAXE 28X2 module. Notice you don’t have to make any special cables for this, just plug the cables onto the 3-pin header inline with the PICAXE 28X2 module pins making sure the black ground wire is towards the outside of the board and the white or yellow or beige wire is closest to the PICAXE 28X2 module.

Now you get into the difficult part of the build-up … gluing the wheels to the servo motor servo horns. Watch these next videos to see the build-up process;

Note that the speaker is actually either taped up on the inside of the lid or like what I do is put a dab of glue between the plastic guide tabs and the speaker to hold it in place.

miniFloppyBot Assemblies

Your RoboGuts™ should look something like this when you’re ready to snap the miniFloppyBot together.

See Fig. 16

Got it? Not much
work at all is it? With the RoboGuts™ kit comes more access to more web pages that show how to use different MCU chips and modules, shows how to program phonemes the easy way so you can easily change what the robot says or sings.

Here is the “Twitch” program listing … have fun!
