We’ve got a number of robot builders at Milwaukee Makerspace, but we’re not the only robot-lovers in town… via Frankie’s blog, check out this video about Tom Consi and the robotics work he’s doing at UWM.
(We’ve seen some renewed interest in the Milwaukee Robotics Club recently, so we’ll probably start up regular meetings again in the next few months… that way everyone can show off what they’ve been working on.)
My line following robot is another step closer to being completed. I finished soldering all of the components and connected the battery to test the circuit. The next and hopefully last steps are to attach the circuit board and motors to the body.
Today I stopped by the makerspace to etch the circuit board for my second robot. The robot is a very simple line follower that uses a LM393 dual comparator IC. The complete design and build instructions can be found in the book Robot Building for Beginners by David Cook.
