Motor Driver Test on an Arduino

Introduction There are prolly a billion tutorials for this and mine is prolly not the best but I am writing it anyways. Here is a piece of arduino code that can be used to test if your motor driver is connected correctly. Connections I am assuming that the motor driver L293D or L298 has been… Continue reading Motor Driver Test on an Arduino

The Poorman’s Robotics: Sensors

Sensors 101  A sensor doesn't necessarily mean sight. Some times a sensor is able to pick up much more information like temperature, light, color, velocity, acceleration, inclination, altitude, depth, pressure etc. Depending upon the quantity to be measured and the environment where it will be measured, the sensors will vary. The basic principle however remain the same. Balanced whetstone, conversion techniques etc… Continue reading The Poorman’s Robotics: Sensors

The Poorman’s Robotics: Power

Introduction A robot is not necessarily a machine with arms or legs or even wheels. If the robot is a stationary machine as in case of robots like arm(welding and assembly line) robots, then the power supply is usually as simple as having transformers or SMPS etc. then using regulators for supplying the required currents.… Continue reading The Poorman’s Robotics: Power

The Poorman’s Robotics: The Processor

The Processor or Controller or Control Logic For any robotic project it is important that the working logic be flexible enough to allow changes and modifications. In order to achieve that, a microcontroller is employed and the working algorithm is programmed into it using either assembly language or C language.  In India the most commonly… Continue reading The Poorman’s Robotics: The Processor


The Poorman’s Robotics: Introduction

I am doing a repeat of a a series I published on my site a few years back. This series most of the topics of DIY robots and related topics. Feedback is encouraged because I need to know what everyone wants to read. 🙂 Introduction The poorman's robotics kit is the basic modules approach for… Continue reading The Poorman’s Robotics: Introduction

Design Of Autonomous Robot: The Birth Of Mark 1 :)

Abstract OK im not putting up the exact plans on how to make this robot, but I am putting up the important information and some points where to take care. I finally got this robot up and running but there is a lot of room for improvement. It took me a long time to actually… Continue reading Design Of Autonomous Robot: The Birth Of Mark 1 🙂
