VIDEO: You can see the robot being used in the 2012 Summer Workshop:

New version of the ArduSkuBot.
Using an Arduino UNO, the Printshield and CNY70-board it has all these features:

  • Ultrasonic distance sensor
  • Two light sensors
  • Line sensor
  • Two buttons
  • Four LEDs
  • Piezoelectric speaker


1) Print MiniSkyBot chassis and wheels.
2) Make a Printshield (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:26816) and a CNY70-board (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:26819)
3) Assemble everything (tutorial: http://carlosgs.es/sites/default/files/2012%20Lesson%202%20-%20Assembling%20the%20ArduSkyBot.pdf)
4) Program and enjoy :)

More info (slides and testing code) here: http://carlosgs.es/2012-summer-workshop

Lots of ideas taken from:


  • New version of the Printshield, adding IR receiver and protection diode for the servos.
  • Better demo code
  • Better documentation

I have uploaded a video in case you want to see this design being used in a small robotics workshop:

Any idea of when the new printersheild might be coming. Im going to hit this after the new year.

I'm not sure on when I will have time to release new designs. Hopefully in around a month!

That will probably work out perfect. Right after xmas I will be finishing up an arduino controlled PCB exposure box. Your board will probably be the first to test it out :)

Is there no .scad file?

I hadn't seen your comment, sorry! now it is uploaded :)
