Why not to use two stepper motors to move a camera or your smartphone on a 3D printer-made slider and rotate it as it moves to track an object? Actually, the control behind this robot is pretty simple… Lets create it!
We are currently working (while we finish the control APPs of the blimpduino) in the SCARA robotic arm. The point of posting this on the web is to ask you for comments/ideas and any feedback. As we are still at this developing stage, we have time to re-think some aspects/features of this robot. A powerful, fast and reliable arm is the basic of modern robotics so… we wanted to “create” one but using regular “MAKER´s World” elements like NEMA17 motors, affordable electronics and common ancillary elements (GT2 timing belt, steel rod, aluminium tubes).
Aaaand the B-robot EVO off-road version is here.
It has been easy to modify the original B-robot EVO adding new Off-road wheels (regular 83 mm diameter RC buggy wheels, quite easy to get and inexpensive). If you already have a B-robot, just modified the parameters indicated below in its code or upload this slightly modified CODE version to the Arduino: BROBOT OFFROAD
At the present, the innovation is extended to the maximum in all knowledge fields. Furthermore, designing Arduino robots is an educational and enriched way of learning and using disciplines related to advanced technologies. They are applied to a small or big machines shaped to improve continuously the human activities.
A challenging robot, perfect to have fun and learn robotics at the same time
