Object Avoiding Robot





Purpose:


This 4wd robot navigates about using two SR04 ultrasonic distance sensors. One sensor points down to detect stairs/cliffs, and the other points forward and rotates left/center/right using a micro servo.

Parts:


4 x continuous rotation servos (for drive wheels)

4 x wheels - must misc wheels I rounded up from toys, screwed onto the servo horns.

1 x micro servo to rotate forward-facing SR04

RC Robot with Headtracking and FPV Video





Purpose:


This is a 2 wheel drive robot that uses car wiper motors for its drive motors, sends video to FPV goggles, and receives headtracking data to move the camera accordingly on a two-servo gimbal.

Parts:


2 x DC wiper motors (modified to remove common ground)
1 x RC Receiver - frsky
1 x Arduino Uno for robot
1 x Arduino Leonardo for head tracker
1 x gyro/accelerometer
1 x Motor controller (dual H bridge was used)

Programs:


Headtracker Arduino code (requires 32U4 Arduino):
https://github.com/nshaver/headtracker/tree/master

RC Robot code (works on just about any Arduino):
