Tutorial – sPiRobot : Control & See what your Robot is seeing from Anywhere

Why sPiRobot ? If you are following my blog I always use Arduino Board to make my projects, but for this I use Raspberry Pi as a brain of my Robot. That’s the reason I called this “PiRobot”. aterials ? 1x Raspberry Pi 1x Webcam 1x USB wifi Dongle 1x 4Gb Memory Card (Raspberry Pi) 1x Micro Usb Cable to power Pi (Raspberry Pi) 1x 9v Battery 1x H-Bridge / L293d Motor Driver 1x HDMI / AV Video Monitor ( Raspber ...

XMOS startKIT: Building an XMOS and Raspberry Pi Robot XMP-1

Introduction The XMOS startKIT from Farnell (or Newark) is a very low cost (£12 including VAT) processor platform that works well with the Raspberry Pi. Together is possible to construct robotics applications with almost no soldering required. The XMOS startKIT is a near-credit-card sized board with an XMOS chip on it with multiple ‘XMOS cores’ that can be programmed in C.  XMOS technology allows things to ...

Raspberry Pi CD Box Robot

English: This project is a work that is taking on many weekends. My son, Gabriel, watched the movie "Wall-E" and proposed that we built a similar robot. I see this model in Dx.com and get inspired by it. We use some scraps we find here at home, especially some old CDs and an empty tube of CDs. The list of materials is as follows: HARDWARE A Raspberry Pi Model B, with 512Mb An SD Card with Occidentalis. Two ...

ANDY: A Multi-Purpose “Humanoid” Robot

How the Software Works Here is a quick overview of how the current software works from startup to shutdown. All the code is open source, so you can browse through it here. Below is a basic flowchart. Step One: Startup Andy To start Andy, flip the switch on the back of him. This allows current to flow from a 11.1v 1.3 amp lipo battery to the L298N motor drivers and to the Raspberry Pi. Once the Pi is booted ...

Communicating over serial between Raspberry Pi and Arduino.

Now that my robot has a Raspberry Pi on board I wanted to be able to send commands from the Raspberry Pi to the Arduino telling the robot what to do. In the future I also want the Arduino to be able to send sensor data back to the Raspberry Pi, so I need two way communication. I created a simple test sketch (program) for the Arduino that would wait for a command then take action once one was received. The c ...

Tank Day 23: Range and Bearing

Step 1: Choose Sensors Two sensors were chosen for the Raspberry Tank’s first foray into detecting its environment: An ultrasound rangefinder (SRF02) and a 3-axis compass (CMPS10), both ordered from robot-electronics.co.uk. Beyond their I2C interface, these devices were chosen largely for cost reasons, though they should both be fine for the job they will have to do on the tank. Step 2: GPIO Breakout! Way b ...

Raspberry Pi Robot controlled over Bluetooth

This tutorial is based on a previous Instructable - Building robots with Raspberry Pi and Python The aim is to present an example of how to setup a Bluetooth serial connection with Arduino to control a Raspberry Pi robot. But lets take it one step further and add Python to generate sounds based on the commands sent over Bluetooth. So basically we are going to send messages from a Android App over Bluetooth ...
