These weekly lessons are designed to walk you through the steps to creating a functional mobile robot. In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how to build a mobile robot using Arduino. This week we are focusing on assembly, wiring, and learning about sensors. Read more & follow along!
Welcome to Part 4 of this tutorial series! Last week we focused on drivetrains, data sheets, and writing code to enable our robot to move. This week, we're going to build a mobile robot Arduino follow and avoid lines. I'll show you how to use IR sensors, IF Statements, and techniques to make your robot autonomous!
Philomath residents are possibly among the first in the world to receive their food deliveries from a robot. Dax is a three foot tall, semi-autonomous service robot who has the ability to keep food hot or cold. Currently, Dax is making free deliveries for businesses and individuals in Philomath within a specific delivery area. The delivery area is between north 11th and north 8th Streets, from Applegate to Houser Lane. The route now includes daily expansions. “It just seemed […]
