Obstacle Avoiding Robot

Since we have successfully build Bluetooth Mobile Robot, let’s try to turn this robot to an “Obstacle Avoiding Robot” by adding an ultrasonic sensor to it. This robot will avoiding any obstacle in distance of 10 cm in front of it. Just follow this tutorial to know more 🙂

Hardware Preparation

This tutorial use :

  1. Maker UNO Bluetooth Robot Kit
  2. HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Sensor

You can make the hardware connection based on the diagram and table below.

How to use this kit to control a lawn mower? Because lawn mower is too heavy for these small DC motors. And how can I make this kit to control power window motors since it requires higher voltage to work.

Hi, this tutorial shows a concept of obstacle avoidance robot. To build an actual size of lawn mower using this kit is not suitable. To control power window motors, you might need to use higher rating of motor drivers. For further discussion, please post at Cytron Technical Forum. Thanks.
