Arduino Robots

2. Hardware Setup

Hardware refers to the physical and electrical components as opposed to the software which is code.

This module refers to two Arduino based robots:  Little Bot & Big Bot

Little Bot:  All 3D printed chassis- small two wheel drive with rear omni wheel, single IR line sensor and two ultrasonic sensors.  The two motors are brushed DC motors with an L9110 motor driver IC

Big Bot:  Large aluminium 6 wheeler or 4WD - brushed DC motors on each side are driven by a single 20Amp ESC (Electronic Speed Controller).  Large 3D printed bumper houses IR Line Sensor and 2 x ultrasonic sensors.
