    Robug 19$ (Kit)
    [ Detail Photos ]

    Robug kit functions

  • Professionally made, bug shaped PCB .
  • The robug always moves when powered, searching for a path.
  • Detects and avoids obstacles by using its feelers.
  • Turns towards the opposite direction when it senses an obstacle from a side. If any head-on collision is detected, it backs up, turns either left or right. Starts its normal operation after that.
  • By the use of very low power DC motors (included), the bug can run for hours.
  • Can be powered directly from a solar panel. Then it can move without batteries under direct sunlight and even can charge its own batteries when not in use.
  • Has an on-off switch to change from normal operation mode to charging mode and vice versa.

    Probug's Functions

  • Microcontroller based hobby robot with a bug shaped PCB.
  • Can be programmed up to 32 steps with the use of the buttons on the bug. The program is saved into the microcontroller's nonvolatile memory automatically and is run each time the bug is powered.
  • Generates bug-like sound effects while in operation.
  • Sensitive to light by the use of a photodiod light sensor.
  • Dark frightens the tiny probug. It always avoids dark areas giving an S.O.S. signal when enters a dark region, backing up to the lighter place where it came from.
  • If it cannot get back to light by backing directly up, then it assumes the lights are off and sleeps for a while. After several seconds of sleep, it gets up and switches to light-search mode. Proceeds towards the brightest place around by turn-scanning its environment.
  • Detects and avoids obstacles by its mechanical feelers.
  • Probug has got a "security bug" mode. In this mode it continuously monitors its environment for light changes. it doesn't give any response to slow changing light, but if the light change speed is faster, it recognises that and gives sound signals. a single beep for decreasing light and two beeps for increasing light. If the light level changes more, or any feelers detect an obstacle around, it gives a ten second alarm sound.
  • Morning rooster mode. :) the user enters a time as # of hours and # of ten minutes then puts the bug into rooster mode in which the bug remains silent and static. After the given time elapsed, the bug begins its normal operation waking up the user probably sleeping nearby :)
  • With its very low power consumption, the bug can run for hours in normal operation, for days in security & rooster bug mode.

    [ Assembly Pictures ]
    Critterbug's functions.

  • Loves music & loves dancing ;)
  • Can wander around avoiding obstacles.
  • Plays a wide variety of melodies.
  • You (the robotbuilder) can program the bug for playing a song of your own via the on board programming buttons. The bug saves the song into its nonvolatile memory and dances with the music when you want (or it gets bored etc).
  • As the robot gets happier, it sings happy songs, if you don't play it for long, its mood gets bored, starts to sing unhappy songs.
  • Light search mode; the bug searches a lightsource or a well lit place. You can make it wander from room to room by swtitching the lights on-off.
  • Dark search mode: the bug searches the darkest places around. If it finds it, it goes to sleep. It makes sleaping sounds.
  • Light commanding system. You can command the bug via an ordinary electric torch. It can wander around with the given light commands.
  • The bug is in wait mode when powered on. The on-board buttons are used to switch it between running modes. If no button is pressed for a certain amount of time, the bugs starts to get bored. When the environment becomes dark, the bug gets scared, it screams, trembles, tries to run away etc. If dark continues, the bug sleeps. If the bug gets much bored, starts to wander around, plays a random song and may dance around.
  • Can run for days with its very low power consuming design.

When bored, the bugs may wander around randomly, play random songs, can operate its fan and blow itself. If the environment gets dark instantly, the bug gets scared, screams , trembles and even may try to run away. Then starts to sleep until the environment is lit again.
