PieterBot (yes there are many out there :) by PieterBos Jun 13, 2012


Small prototype robot. There are many versions out there this is one of them ;-) Using servo's and a arduino nano. And printed stuff

See it in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CfzsNUcKHk Without head ;-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UULxM7JtcY

This is work in progress but building a custom quadcopter and that takes most of my time but wanted to upload it anyway

Get Two Modelcraft Standaard RS 2 Servo's (Conrad) or something similar One Tower Pro Mini Servo or something similar One Battery Holder for 3 AA batteries
One Small Breadboard And mount a Arduino Nano One ultrasonic sensor (ebay or dealextreme)

Modify de RS2 servo's so that they will turn continuously (google it ;-)

Print: Base_level Battery_level BreadBoard_level Battery_stop Servo_holder

thing (nice wheels ;-) also nice protobot) http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:18377 thing (nice caster) http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:20471 thing (nice head) http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:24858

Mount the modified servos to the base level use m3 bolts mount coasterl with m3 bolts Mount the battery level using 3 m3 bolts Mount servo holder to the breadboard level use 3 m3 bolts Mount the breadboard level using 3 m3 bolts Glue on the broadboard. Insert sensor into the sensor holder en glue it to the mini servo (see photo) Mount the wheels on the RS2 Servos (adding a bit off hotgleu helps) i used jumping rope for the tires (used superglue to make than just cut of the right length) Insert battery holder and and battery stop (there is a hole for the m3 bolt)

Wiring: TODO please comment and i will add some instructions how to do this.

Upload very basic program to arduino (PieterBot.zip) Tinker with it and make it beter ;-)

Things to do: add extra ball caster better battery stop better servo holder better software add laser for no good reason ;-)
