Hello everyone! In this instructable, I'm showing you how to DIY a Vacuum Cleaner RC Robot
Step 1: Intro
Not only a Remote Controlled Vacuum Cleaner, it also includes 3D CAD, Programming, Algorithms, Mechanics, PCB CAD and Schematics. You can definitely edit or alter and make it better. All files are here, free to download. I posted some codes as an example and please feel free to play with. So here is the RC Vacuum Cleaner, good luck for making this one.
1. Vacuum cleaning is so boring!
2. Traditional Vacuum Cleaners are attached to wall outlets!
3. Wires get tangled up! Such a mess!
1. You can Remote control your Vacuum Cleaner. Let the VC do the work!
2. It is mobile and wireless, once fully charged it works 40 good minutes.
. You can limit noise level by controlling airflow
4. Last but not least, it is so much fun
Step 2: Tools You Need
- Twist bits
- Allen Wrench
- Soldering Iron
- Soldering paste
- Soldering wire
- Laser printer

Step 4: Robot Frame
I drew my robot frame on thinkercad. Here it is:
Step 5: Cleaner
Step 6: Control Board
I attached my Altium Designer project file and you can download and print PCB CAD
Step 7: Almost Done
Step 8: Programming
I attached my Arduino Library files and Robot.ino file
Step 9: Testing
200% Done ...
See you soon Fully automatic robot vacuum cleaner ....
Step 10: Code Examples May You Need
Here are some examples of my code. You can change it and make a better automatically controlled robot!
