  • SainSmart InstaBots Upright Rover(Self-Balancing Robot With Arduino)

    My problems seems a span configuration of the gyro. When I rotate the robot 90 degres, the gesture A is 30 and at the opposite 180 the gesture A is -30 degres.

    I have to run this robot this years :) I have order an other gyro, an other mega 2560 board and an other protoshield. The mega 2560 provided by sainsmart are unable to upload any code (programmer issue) I've try with an other board an i'm able to upload, but this board was half burn. I have shorted this old board on my 3d printer. It's for that reason I have order an other board. For the gyro, this one need to be bias to obtain a top dead zero.

    What is your PID setting (kp, ki, kd) ?

    Probably a charging issue, the battery pack voltage is under 6v. We give you a feed back tomorrow, after charging and retry .

    Ok, Remote seem ok, wiring and power supply too. The robot don't self-balance. I think is because the gesture A was negative as shown in the picture.

    I have change the line 19 in the Upright_Rover the following statement #define Angle_offset 0 to 63 but the robot don't self balance, seem a gain issue.

    Ok, I finally succeed to upload the code on the rover mega2560 board. After my FTDI usb driver solved, my root librairys was not in the good folder, now is in finder/documents/arduino/librairies. We have to paste the folder contained in the INSTABOT/librairies. The remote receive the 2.4GHz signal from the rover. Now we have to print a battery pack, I will use 3 X 3.7v li-ion, 3000mAh, is a ultra fire 18650.We give some feedback if the rover is ok, tomorrow I think

    That's enough for now. I have plug a 400w power supply in the rover, the board light and the encoder light turn on. Only one motor run slowly, the other one seem turn with the MPU6050 when be tilt but the rover don't stand up alone. I have finally find the wiring diagram for the JGA25-370 201 rpm motors (see picture) The remote seem ok, I can see the MPU6050 data on LCD but no response of the rover when we move the joystick. The L298P temperature grow up, over 80 degrees Celsius, too much current ? I tie about this project, let the pressure down before we continue. Thank you very much V00D00, if your project been completed before mine, let me know the secret. I'll be back in few day, in this time we continue searching on the web the bit of information about the V3 model. And if i'am luc...see more »That's enough for now.

    I have the 20-011-405-US-KS, is the SainSmart InstaBots Upright Rover Kit Pro Updated 2-Wheel Self-Balancing Robot Kit.

    I use an older version of Arduino (1.5.7) because under mac iOS it's the more stable version. Normally i'm able to upload on UNO or MEGA board but I dont know why a lost virtual usb serial port. I've to try to find the good FTDI USBserial driver. We dont need this problem now, I think I was neer of a success but my mac doesn't want to help me. Do you run under iOS ?

    Ok, i've try something, I have substitute the blue wire by the orange one. Now I want to upload de code on the board but we have many errors when I compile in Arduino IDE, undeclared variable or unused ??? V00D00 : I have try to change the line 11 in the code of the remote and I'am not able to compile (verify) ???

    I have change the 9v socket because the little pins in the socket was to larger and the plug does't go in.I dont have blue wire on my motor but we have a orange wire ?Thank you very much V00D00. I will change the line 11 in my sketch and continue working on. Can you provide me your wiring list to make sure mine is ok ?I need to print new part for my remote with my 3D printer because i broke them when I trying to make a hole to insert an on/off switch.

    Can you post a picture of the motor wiring (color of the 6 wires) and the order on the shield plugin ?Do you have find the PDF easy-follow-instruction as described by the seller ? It's not my first experience with Arduino product and this Rover in not for beginner, we have to weld the pins on the MPU6050, change the 9V socket on the remote Uno board... Anyone have more information and succeed about the V3 rover ?

    Hello, I have buy the latest version of SainSmart InstaBots Upright Rover Kit Pro Updated 2-Wheel Self-Balancing Robot KitSKU:20-011-405-US-KSIt's very difficult to find any informations about, wiring and the right code for the AT MEGA 2560 V3 rover board. I have search on the Sainsmart website without success, always return to the V2 model.I have complete the wiring of the LCD remote and upload de code with Arduino IDE. The remote seem ok.Any body know how to wiring and code the rover ?Information before xmas will be appreciatedTank's you
