Arduino Uno Robot
The robot above based on the Arduino microcontroller board, detects obstacles and wanders around a room. It can also be controlled with a bluetooth phone app. Developing a similar robot using the Raspberry Pi. See our “sister” company for more details, BridgewayTech.org
Mod of the robot “RECON 6.0 Programmable Robot” adding Arduino Uno motor control and BlueTooth for phone control.
For more details on how to mod this rover see the “Tutorials” section in the menu above.
The robotic arm shown above is our latest project. It was built from a kit with a wired controller, controlling it with switches. The controller will be replaced with an Arduino microcontroller making it robotic, that is, its movements will be programmed so it will move automatically.
We wish to reach all ages, cultures and socio-economic groups with a relatively inexpensive, fun way to learn about science, computers, programming, electronics and engineering. Our tutorials will be a fun way to learn about STEM/STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics). To keep cost low we use the Arduino family of microcontrollers and the Raspberry Pi.
Our designs is more true to real world, robotics, computer programming and electronics since we are not using Lego like parts, Lego programming language or similar. The Lego like robotics, in order to make connecting things simpler, hide the details of the electronics limiting the understanding of how robotic devices work.
