Introduction: Construction Manual of Mi-Bot Arduino Robot

About: Technomentis is a venture to foster innovation and hands on learning for youngsters at formative ages. We explore, create, design, tinker and innovate at Explorato - our makers space.

Mi-Bot is an Arduino based robot that can be used for multiple applications. Mi-bot can be easily interfaced with Bluetooth modules. Special provisions are provided on the driving base to attach Ultrasonic sensors, IR sensors etc. The stunning acrylic body also provides stiffness and beauty to the robot at the same time. The driving base of Mi-Bot is also compatible with Intel Galileo boards.
