Introduction: Arduino Mars Rover
Our high school in collaboration with the Faculty of Engineering of Bologna we participated in an engineering project that is to build a rover called MathLabMars Rover this has three Arduino unit and a radio transmitter to stay connected to MathLab system and Simulink and I my other classmate we occupied us of the programming for the automatic movement of the rover and another group was involved in the construction of the rover.
In fact, as you can see in the video the rover automatically follows the green points that in reality would be of programmable points of interest (eg a dune, a crater or something deformed from the landscape). After our rover we presented it to the local fair of robotics and electronics getting many positive reviews.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Construction of Arduino Mars Rover
The original construction project was more or less the same in fact was how to build a LEGO the difference made her the code to find and reach a particular point of interest
Step 2: The Structure
The engineering structure of the robot is quite simple consists of 3 units TWO Arduino board to the calculations in a spare wheels we bought in a dynamic model shop, a Raspberry Pi camera and a thin battery of 10,000 mAh
Step 3: Execute of Mars Rover
the code was simple to write because we say that there are two ways of writing in MathLab and Simulink writing normally a command line or with Simulink that with this build variables and algorithms directly with complex graphics.
