Building A Robot

Robotic Chassis (Part 1)

     Every robot needs a chassis, the mechanical structure that holds it together. Let’s take a look at the chassis used in this project and test out the motors while we’re at it.



Motor Control (Part 2)

     We want to be able to control how our robot moves, so being able to reliably control the motors is our first objective. We’ll use a microcontroller and a motor controller IC to do this.



Sensor Feedback (Part 3)

     Sensors let a robot understand the world that surrounds it, just as our eyes and ears do. Let’s add a proximity sensor to our robot so that it can intelligently move about the world.
