How to Make a Robot – Lesson 3: Making Sense of Actuators

How to Make a Robot – Lesson 3: Making Sense of Actuators

Now that we learned about robotics in general in Lesson 1 and decided on the robot to make in Lesson 2, we will now choose the actuators that will make the robot move.

How to Make a Robot – Lesson 10: Programming Your Robot

How to Make a Robot – Lesson 10: Programming Your Robot

Programming is usually the final step involved in building a robot. If you followed the lessons, so far you have chosen the actuators, electronics, sensors and more, and have assembled the robot so it hopefully looks something like what you had initially set out to build. Without programming though, the robot is a very nice looking and expensive paperweight.

How to Make a Robot – Lesson 7: Using Sensors

How to Make a Robot – Lesson 7: Using Sensors

Unlike humans, robots are not limited to just sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. Robots use a variety of different electromechanical sensors to explore and understand their environment and themselves. Emulating a living creature’s senses is currently very difficult, so researchers and developers have resorted to alternatives to biological senses.

How to Make a Robot – Lesson 6: Controlling Your Robot

How to Make a Robot – Lesson 6: Controlling Your Robot

The definition we have chosen for a “robot” requires the device to obtain data about its environment, make a decision, and then take action accordingly. This does not exclude the option of a robot being semi-autonomous (having aspects which are controlled by a human and others which it does on its own).

How to Make a Robot – Lesson 5: Choosing a Motor Controller

How to Make a Robot – Lesson 5: Choosing a Motor Controller

A motor controller is an electronic device (usually comes in the shape of a bare circuit board without enclosure) that acts as an intermediate device between a microcontroller, a power supply or batteries, and the motors.

How to Make a Robot – Lesson 4: Understanding Microcontrollers

A microcontroller is a computing device capable of executing a program (i.e. a sequence of instructions) and is often referred to as the “brain” or “control center” in a robot since it is usually responsible for all computations, decision making, and communications.

How to Make a Robot – Lesson 2: Choosing a Robotic Platform

How to Make a Robot – Lesson 2: Choosing a Robotic Platform

Following the first lesson, you now have a basic understanding of what a robot is and what current robots normally do. Now, it is time to decide on the type if robot you are going to build. A custom robot design often starts with a “vision” of what the robot will look like and what it will do.

How to Make a Robot – Lesson 1: Getting Started

How to Make a Robot – Lesson 1: Getting Started

Welcome to the first installment of the Grand RobotShop Tutorial, a series of 10 lessons that will teach you how to make your own robot. This tutorial is aimed at anybody willing to get started in robotics and have a basic understanding of terms such as “voltage”, “current”, “motor”, and “sensors”. Although this might seem pretty basic, even people with previous robot building experience might find useful information regarding the general method of building a robot.
