Project for TRW December

Postby Tim Laren » Sat Dec 24, 2011 7:20 pm

My goal is to have a balancing robot utilizing the following:
    Mega2560 for the brain
    Dual H-Bridge to control the wheel motors
    Ultrasonic Ranger for collision avoidance
    MiRF RF Link for remote controlling
    LCD Keypad Shield for debugging and initialization

For the remote I will use the following:
    UNO - brain
    LCD Keypad Shield - Human Interface
    MiRF RF Link

Wish me luck, right now the bot just flops around like a freshly caught fish.

TRW Dec has come and gone, and sorry I didn't have the project as expected.

All I could come up with was a drunken bot, made of foam core and double back tape, that spent most of it's time face down on the floor. I guess maybe it was getting ready for New Years Eve. Well it was a mess and I left it at home, maybe I should have brought it and shared it for some improvement ideas. When I get a little time I will start documenting it here. Maybe some photos or a video, or maybe not, I hate those crappy YouTube videos and hate to add to it. If I can provide something substantial maybe.

For now, just so you get an idea, it's an UNO, Accelerometer, Gyro, L298N Motor Drive Board and some form core and double back tape. Oh yeah, and some batteries. Thinking about getting some RC Batteries and adding a switching power supply for the UNO, keep the motor noise off the processor.
