Adventures in robotics

luca 29/05/2017 0

On this blog I published several electronic projects and tutorials but I realized that none of those is about robotics; for this reason I’m going to start – with this post – a tutorial for dummies to teach how to build a small robot and how to program it to do different tasks, like avoid obstacles, follow a line, receive commands


To let really everyone follow this tutorial, I chose a very cheap robotic kit (about 20 euro) from Banggood:


The kit includes:

  • a chassis with acrylic base, DC motor, wheels and caster (the front rotating wheel)
  • an Arduino Uno (chinese clone) with its USB cable
  • a motor control board based on the L298N chip
  • a sensor shield to make it easy to connect external sensors / actuators
  • a ultrasonic distance sensor: HC-SR04
  • a small servo
  • cables, screws…

Here are some shots about the unboxing:
