Hi there
Strong Advise for Beginners

Dont Bite off more than you can chew

Meaning if you're building your first robot your tgts must be modest...Appreciate what you''ve done & then move on. if you try to do too much...most probably you'll abandon it midway & lose interest in it..

SO try something simple...have fun with it & move to a higher level...

After that we're all here to help you out!

Good luck[/b]

simplicity is the best ... think simple for your first adventure into robotics !

Later u can graduate to complicated stuff ... as you gain confidence along the way

i appreciate the advice given to me by sumandeep n others
however i wish to clarify that i was planning to build a bot with the 3 proposed activities in 3 seperate stages
for eg i could begin with a line follower and having experimentd with it for long i could then add sum pick and place mechanism to it
he final thing could be the legged thing
being a mechanical guy i am a dud at electronics
i wish to seek advice on where to start from and then how to handle the electronics
i have an atmel programmer n presently i am learning 8051 from mazidi
wat say... any help?

Got it !!!

So if u are learning 8051 from mazidi ... and also having a programmer then perhaps this would not be dificult at all for u :


This could be assemmbled in a matter of hours ... Given that u know soldering and basic assempling techniques ...


Good Luck ... ask for any further help u need.... check out all the forums ....they already got lot of relevant info for newbies
