Candy Counting Robot with the Raspberry Pi

In this project, we took the tried-and-true robot costume and gave it some life with the Raspberry Pi, GrovePi, and a handful of Grove sensors. The costume is a standard robot costume, but with a candy-counting machine attached that talks! When a piece of candy is placed in the robot, it flashes its LEDs, thanks the candy donor for the piece of candy, and announces the candy count. We use the Raspberry Pi f ...

Robot Movement by Hand Gesture

1. Putting ESP8266-01 and ADXL345 together Program ESP8266 with Arduino IDE for convenience. ADXL345 accelerometer communicates using I2C protocol. I've used ESP8266-01, in later versions of ESP we have dedicated pins for I2C bus to communicate with ADXL345. But in ESP8266-01 we can use any of the 4 GPIO pins for I2C, here I've used GPIO 0 and GPIO 2, since GPIO 1 and GPIO 3 (Tx & Rx) will be used for d ...

Raspberry Pi Based Obstacle Avoiding Robot using Ultrasonic Sensor

Robots are machines which reduce the human efforts in heavy works by automating the tasks in industries, factories, hospitals etc. Most of the robots are run by using some control unit or components like a push button, remote, joystick, PC, gestures and by executing some command by using controller or processor. But today we are here with a Automatic Robot which moves autonomously without any external event ...
