1. Competitions Robotics 3 - The Build and a Fast Line Follower using PID

    Last time we covered the hardware we needed to assemble our robot. This time lets assemble it quickly and get it moving. And do some hello world in robotics , which is Line Following.

    We will start with the Video of what we are going to achieve -

    If you are building this and already have bought the parts I will assume that you will need little help assembling it , but I would like to give some pointers so that ...

  2. Competition Robotics - General Purpose high performance robot (Part 2)

    In the last part we had gone over some ground work on how to build a fast robot. If you had missed it you can read it here.

    So this time lets start with some robot building, like in previous article our target was a fast, small robot capable of solving problems like mazes , line following , soccer , picking and dragging things etc. When building we will go over the headings covered last time and pick items appropriately. The best commercial example of a robot which somewhat fulfills ...

  3. Competition Robotics Building to Win ( Part 1 )

    Ive run Robotics India since a few years now, I can say about 80 % visitors are looking to take part in a competition. But most people end up building the same old robots making the same mistakes year after year and I am not really seeing any improvements in robots which participate in this competitions. So I thought to start a series on how to build better robots for most of these competitions with some tips to help you win. Proposed specifications are of target robot which should be able to ...

  4. DelFly II: The Robotic Spy Insect

    Did you ever imagine a tiny robotic insect spying on you? Well this could soon become a reality. Technical University of Delft has created DelFly II which is a flapping wing MAV (Micro Air Vehical). MAV is a class of UAV which is typically 15 cm in size.

    The DelFly II from TU Delft is capable of flying based on a vision algorithm for navigation. It can bounce back easily after colliding with a wall and thats going to be a great advantage for this tiny robot. The delFly II navigation ...

  5. Comparison between readymade robot kits (Asuro, Boe-Bot, Qu-Bot, Ma-Vin)

    I have 4 programmable robot kits here is a small comparison between them.

    1. Asuro

    I bought this robot from hongkong for US$ 55. A good price for beginner robot. It came with serial port transceiver but my lapy had no serial port so i tried it when i came back to India. This is based on AVR. It comes as a soldering kit. You have to prepare program in any compiler for avr

    Pros :
    Low price
    Easy to assemble
    Open source
