|Sumo Robot Project; (Updated !!)|
Posted by ozkal on Saturday, November 05 @ 09:20:14 EST (7064 reads)
|We had started a sumo project some time ago. It had some recent improvements. The two identical sumo robots took their shape and did their first fights already.|
Here are some photos. The project details will follow later.
Note: New ! Videoclips:Read on to download

|Mini-Giant Robot Tracker|
Posted by ozkal on Saturday, October 01 @ 07:33:51 EDT (7228 reads)
|Our new work, tracker, was created on a PCB chassis as this is usually the way we do it. With sound sensors shaped as ears on the front part, glued-on moving toy eyes on these ears, and the smiling mouth in the front gave it a jolly look. |
Our robot has six main function modes, and of course bright glowing neon bulbs (I just love this neon stuff).
Command by sound
Command by light
If you want to see our Tracker while working, go download the videoclip below.

|The robot garden|

|Thanks frits for the article and project.|
If your robot happens to fall of the table and is totaly ruined this is
perhaps a good solution: A robot garden is made of cardboard of 4 mm.
4 pieces, easy travel and very easy to make.

|SUMO ROBOT PROJECT|
Posted by ozkal on Tuesday, March 08 @ 08:59:33 EST (11147 reads)
Sumo robot project has started.
Two identical sumo robots are taking shape on my work table. I'm using Tempbug's DC motors with reduction gear (2 gears) on this project.
I'll use sensors of linebug made of mice parts for sensing the white lane at the side of the circular sumo platform.
And for the opponent robots to see each other, i've got two options which i didn't be able to decide in between. Either i'll use greedybug's charge port sensing sensor or i'll use an obstacle detecting circuit based on an ozz chip. Greedybug's circuit is best for detecting a target which has got an onboard IR emitter. But it is useless for robots which don't emit IR. And the ozz based system work well on anything unless its not black. :)
For now, i'll just concentrate on keeping the bugs on the sumo platform.
PIC 16877 will be used as the microcontroller.
The article continues with a photo of the robot showing its current building stage.

|Greedybug a self feeding robot|

|Greedybug is designed for the testing of a very important new function which wasn't present in our previous projects; self feeding function. Namely charging its own batteries by finding and contacting to a stationary power source-battery charger. in the picture below, you can see the greedybug and the batterycharger. The robot finds the charger via the modulated IR signals sent from it.|
