Intro: Homemade Robotic Kit
This is a basic homemade robotic kit made from hard board. This kit can be used for RC vehicles like RC car, Line Following Robot, Edge avoiding Robot etc.
Update : Please use a DC geared box since the simple 3V DC cannot put enough torque to make the robot move.
A simple line following robot project instructable will be posted soon.
Step 1: Material
Get the following material :
1. Hard Board
2. 3v DC Motors x2
3. Tyres (From any Toy as i did)
4. Caster Wheels
i. For caster wheel (0.5 inch)
ii. For DC motot (1.5 inch)
6. Support for joining motor with base (I used an L-bracket)
Step 2: Cutting and Assembling
The dimensions of hard board are 5 inch by 11 inch.
Cater wheel distance from front edge : 6 cm.
DC motors distance from back edge : 1.5 cm.
Use any saw to cut the hard board. Also put small piece of hard board in between the caster wheel and dc motors for strong support.
Use a marker to mark the locations of screws. Then use a drill to drill a hole smaller in diameter than the screw. Then assemble the kit as shown in image.
