Robot Construction Kits

Posted on April 23, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under Robotics Projects & Kits, Where to Start.

Robot Construction Kits can be distinguished from normal robot kits since they use modular parts and allow you to assemble different robots using the same parts. A robot kit on the other hand only allows you to build one robot. Robot construction kits are a great investment because they tend to include everything you need [...]

Humans Lose Again, Robot Solves Rubik’s Cube in Less Than a Second

Posted on September 27, 2013

By Carlos Asmat & filled under Entertainment.

Everybody has seen a Rubik’s Cube solving robot. They usually do a great job at it but, although they are faster than average humans, a trained human can usually beat them in terms of speed. This new robot solves the cube not only in the most efficient way possible, but is also the fastest at [...]

Basics: How Do I Choose a Battery?

Posted on January 15, 2013

By Coleman Benson & filled under Electronics, Schools & Curriculum.

Given the wide range of actuators and electronics which go into a robot, choosing the right battery may not be an easy task. This article guides you through the thought processes involved in choosing one or more batteries for your robot. Even if you are just starting in robotics, you may have already realized that [...]

Basics: What is a Motor Controller?

Posted on February 20, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Where to Start.

A Motor Controller is a device that acts as intermediary between your robot’s microcontroller, batteries and motors. A motor controller is necessary because a microcontroller can usually only provide roughly 0.1 Amps of current whereas most actuators (DC motors, DC gear motors, servo motors etc.) require several Amps. The current a motor consumes is related to [...]

Basics: How Do I Choose an Actuator?

Posted on February 20, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Where to Start.

An actuator is a device that converts electrical energy into physical motion. Choosing the right actuators (which include DC motors, gear motors, servo motors, linear actuators, muscle wire etc.) requires an imagination and a bit of math and physics. The vast majority of actuators produce either rotational or linear motion though combinations thereof can lead to complex motion. [...]

Thanks for your reply! Yes, a leadscrew (with a arm) and I would think a stepper would work best for me then. Limiting switches may not be the best ... to program speed of revs. I'd like the option of controlling 2 or more motors also.

You want a leadscrew turned by a geared DC motor, or a stepper motor.
With the stepper, you can just count the revs.
With the DC geared motor, you'd use limit switches.

A small microprocessor board can control either of the motors.

Hi zaid_mk90,

Without any model number it's really hard to know which motor your talking about.
Not all manufacturer have those number as they require lot of testing for low cost motors.

Give us more details and we will see if we can get the data.

All the best,

I get it now. We have to run both motors at the same rate for above to hold true, right?
Thanks for your help!! :)

I'm very bad at visualizing.

I'll make a detailed model.
I've looked at several stepper motors in the market, but would you be able to help pick the parts, later on??
