A few days ago we got several ATTiny85 ICs (datasheet) and this is a first video of the small chip in action. Working out the kinks of programming this little guy with an Arduino Uno and getting Arduino libraries to work with it takes a bit of effort and digging around the forums. Still, as… Read More »
General Objectives: The objective of this contest is for a robot to follow a black line on a white background, without losing the line while navigating several turns on a race course. The robot to complete the course in the shortest period of time while accurately tracking the line from start to finish wins.
This is an “instructable” on how to hack a cheap remote controlled toy car and turn it into an Arduino powered autonomous robot vehicle. It requires some soldering, so be prepared to mess around with wires on a tiny PCB and learn to de-solder a chip from a board! Once you master that though, you… Read More »
A great series of Arduino video tutorials by Jeremy Blum. The series wlaks you from setting up your Arduino prototyping environment and making a single LED blink, to complex experiments like controlling DC motors, LCDs and GPS tracking….
Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. There is a wealth of resources on their web-site: tutorials, examples, code libraries and a very active community in the forums.
Batteries almost ran out by the time the bot finally made it trough the obstacle course…Still WIP I guess.
..or rather what is left from a perfectly decent remote controlled tank!
