Build Your Own BARBOT using AVR microcontroller

Ever wanted a robotic liquor server?I purchased a Lynxmotion robotic arm last year and an Arduino (deci) to play around with. I had it serial controlled with a joystick and it was a great way to start in robotics. More recently I wanted to take on another micro-controller related project for a university science fair. Since it was going to be hosted at the on-campus pub, I thought it would be fitting to bui ...

Make a Web Connected Robot (for about $500) (using an Arduino and Netbook)

This Instructable will show you how to build your own Web Connected Robot (using an Arduino micro-controller and Asus eee pc). Why would you want a Web Connected Robot? To play with of course. Drive your robot from across the room or across the country, using nothing more than Skype and a web browser (nothing to install on the controlling computer). After that? Dig into the software & adapt it however y ...

Arduino R/C Lawnmower (painted) using Atmega168 microcontroller

What this is: This instructable will show you how to make your Arduino into an R/C interface that you can use for just about anything requiring remote control. I will also show you how I built an R/C lawnmower using my Arduino, a cheap R/C transmitter and receiver pair, and a couple of electric-wheelchair motors from Ebay.  I have used this interface to control anything from basic LED's to Bipolar stepper m ...

Using the iRobot Create’s Command Module with Linux using avr microcontroller

Since iRobot hasn't provided linux users with a way to use the command module, I had to figure it out myself. Don't be intimidated, its not hard at all, really. All you need to do is run a couple of scripts. Lets get started, shall we? Step 1 Get the goods For this tutorial, I'm assuming you have an apt-based package manager. (i.e. you use a Debian derivative, or an Ubuntu derivative) Simply because apt = g ...

Picopter using Microcontroller ATmega128RFA1

Update May 4 2012: I am still working very hard on version 3 of Picopter. The new version's hardware is already done. There are new 3D printed motor holders. I've done some measurements with regards to mass and radio spectrum. I've posted stuff to http://www.frank-zhao.com/picopter_forum/index.php including the new design files, so take a look. Update Feb 24 2012: I did not expect this much response. I've g ...
