GET YOUR BOT ON : Robotics Hackathon Robot Demo
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials You Will Need
Here are all the Materials you will need:
1. Arduino Uno Board
2. Bread Board
4. LED Light(s)
5. AC Motor
7. Proximity Sensor
8. Meccano Construction pieces
Step 2: BUILD a BASE
Using Meccano construction pieces build a base for your Robot.
***Remember to add movable wheels to your Robot, so it can roam around.
Step 3: CONNECT & PROGRAM
Mini Introduction in how the Robot will functon.
Our Robot is going to be able to sense objects nearby. When it senses an object, it will stop and it's lights will go off.
1. *** ARDUINO PROGRAM ***
Let's get started by downloading the Arduino Programming Shell (IDE). This will allow us to write programs that can then be uploaded to the Arduino microcontroller.
Linux (x86): http://arduino.cc/download.php?f=/arduino-1.0.6-l...
Linux (x64): http://arduino.cc/download.php?f=/arduino-1.0.6-l...
2. *** REFER TO THE DIAGRAM ON HOW TO CONNECT ON YOUR MATERIALS ***
3. *** COPY AND PASTE THE CODE BELOW INTO YOUR ARDUINO PROGRAM ***
Here you can find some sample code for the robot:
Just copy and paste it into your Arduino IDE window.
Remember to read all the comments ( all the text after the //), the comments are there to help you better understand what the program is doing and what values you can change.
Step 4: MAKE YOUR ROBOT'S STRUCTURE
Get creative and make an awesome structure for your robot!!
Step 5: PUT EVERYTHING TOGETHER
Now we get to put all the components of our robot together.
Step 6: Your Robot Is Complete!
Great Job!! Here is your amazing fully functioning Robot!
