SpiderBot – robot Climbs wall like spiderman

SpiderBot - robot Climbs wall like spiderman
Spiderbot is an under constrained cable suspended robot capable of maneuvering from one stance space to another by clinging to new contact points. It moves with four magnetic grapples that it can launch, detach, and aim according to it’s path planning algorithm. While the robot is definitely not a final product and is quite a bit away from ...

Tiny Braitenberg Vehicle – Light Seeking Robot

Tiny Braitenberg Vehicle - Light Seeking Robot
This tiny Braitenberg vehicle project is a light seeking robot.  It weighs 17 gramms, is driven by two pager motors, powered by a small lipo cell and controlled by an 8-pin ATtiny25V. This tiny robot has a very low component count. At least for a robot, based on a microcontroller. That has, of course, some implications. It can ...

Furby Connected to Internet

Furby Connected to Internet
This project is to connect a Furby to the internet, whenever you need an email-warning you can stroke, or a furry newsreader, here’s the starting point for your project. The original Furby controller was replaced with an Arduino which in turn was given ethernet connectivity via a LANTRONIX XPort serial ethernet module.  The arduino serves a simple webpage with ...

Fast Object Tracking – Robot Computer Vision

Fast Object Tracking – Robot Computer Vision
This is a good demonstration how computer vision is achieved with some coding examples and good photos. He also used two servos to make a pan-tilt camera head controlled by the computer. In this project he used the basic image processing computer vision algorithms – the OpenCV library. As it’s name suggests, is an open-source computer-vision library ...

An Intelligent Linux Based Robot Platform

An Intelligent Linux Based Robot Platform
I have always wanted to experiment with robotics, and lately I’ve found the time to build an “intelligent”, open-source robotic platform. An embedded Linux robotic platform that is capable of: Speech synthesis (via espeak) Speech Recognition (cmu sphinx) Computer Vision (opencv) Just a teaser, before I upload more videos: List of Speech Synthesis Capabilities: Speaking ...

Hobby car-like robot with Camera

Hobby car-like robot with Camera
I must admit that this is a great robot project. Even though the robot itself does not look complex, building something like this may become really interesting. But it keeps your imagination and creativity free – you may build whatever you want connecting much wider range of sensors, motors, servos, etc., than any other robotics ...
