Autonomous/RC Human Bot

Autonomous/RC Human Bot


Autonomous/RC Human Bot

I am a 24 yr old student at York Technical Institute studying electrical engineering and this is my robot that I have been building for a project and wanted to share with all students, educators, and hobbyists.

This  robot can be controlled via a PC, remote control or Microcontroller.

Building a robot is all about creativity, how it is controlled, and intelligence.

This robot is built from:
  • 13 Parallax and hitec servos
  • home made pan and tilt head camera system
  • servo erector set brackets with ball bearings
  • erector set parts as body
  • lynx motion tank tread kit
  • wireless camera for live video streaming
  • parallax ping sensors
  • LED light strips for headlights (24 LEDs)
  • parallax Bs2 and bs2px microcontrollers
  • parallax Propeller microcontroller
  • 2 parallax HB-25 motor controllers
  • parallax Propeller usb servo controller
  • spektrum DX5e reciever and transmitter
  • 2 12 volt 6mm shaft (50:1 gear ratio) motors
  • parallax LCD screen
  • Misc. sensors
  • different software programs such as roborealm for object tracking and more.
  • Reedy LiPo 7.4V 1800mAh lithium battery pack
  • Reedy LiPo 14.8V 3600mAh lithium battery pack

Here are the links to my videos of the robot...

In order to build a robot similar to this you do not need everything I used. To make something cheap and easier all you need is what I included in my last page. I started with something much smaller and not as complex as this and in time I advanced. You can modify and change anything you want but you must be creative and willing to learn. Enjoy!.
