My Robot Butler

Not to take users off this site but updating two postings of this is getting tiring. From now on you can find info about this project here. I will leave the funny video up.

YAY!!!

i am FINALLY starting my project!!!! i am gonna order them soon. If it wasn't for this site, i wouldn't be interested in robots at all. *GASP!* thanks guys!
So it all needs to start somewhere - order has been placed for the various components just when will they arrive. When out buying concrete, sand and shingle tho i … Read more

Motor driver

Well.. Ever since I found this page (through ing.dk) I've been dying to build my first robot.

I have bough all the parts I need, and i've been trying to modify an RC toy car, but i have blown up the motor driver in it :D. I tried with the 293D, but it couldn't take the current. So right now i'm just stuck...

Help Designing Your Robot

As said in sociatyofrobots.com, designing is the most important stage of robot building. I spent no time designing Turpis, and that's most likely why it turned out so bad. However, I'm an awful artist, and I need to find a more efficient way to plan. I've tried my hand at Sketchup, and it is uncooperative with my computers. Are there any easy-to-use free software out there?

 

Thanks,

Programming Microcontrollers

I wanted to make a robot useing a microcontroller. But I have had trouble over time trying to program a microcontroller.

Would it bother anyone to write an article on programming a microcontroller?

 

How can I add Wifi to my robot?

I'm new to robotics but have dabbled in Microcontrollers the last few years and develop software for a living. One thing I've been dreaming of doing for awhile is builting a blimp robot that is controlled over wifi, but I can't seem to find information on is how to connect microcontrollers to some sort of wifi interface. I'm hoping there's some sort of module somewhere that I can interface with.

Here's the plan:

Robo-Drummer

I am going to build a robot that can play drums!

There you go! 

.. OK, maby not drums, but at least play on things in a funky way!
