Robots are also popular in our community. From a remote controlled vehicle, to a self driving car and even a ‘smart’ tank to investigate and map the surroundings after a major disaster: the possibilities are endless.
We have some stuff to play with, so tell us what you want to learn and make.
o Basic Lego robot: a remote controlled one, which can be used to learn all the basic mechanics and electronics.
o Microbit robot: a basic robot using two microcontrollers: one for the robot steering and the other for control https://www.kitronik.co.uk/blog/build-microbit-controlled-zumo-buggy/
o Arduino Zumo robot: a more advanced robot that can be programmed in various ways (line following, maze solving) https://www.pololu.com/category/129/zumo-robots-and-accessories
o Alphabot with both Arduino and Raspberry Pi , which is a great basis to expand on https://www.waveshare.com/wiki/AlphaBot
Think of making it autonomous like: http://ardupilot.org/rover/
or give it room mapping capabilities with a LIDAR…
o Pixy2 camera on Zumo chassis: https://docs.pixycam.com/wiki/doku.php?id=wiki:v2:pixy_zumo_howto (pixy2 cam needs to be ordered)
