My Microrobot Genius

Updated on September 21, 2017

1) Microrobot With PIC16F887, PICC and App Inventor 2

The importance of starting to make applications with microrobots, is that they have many applications both industrial as for example in places dangerous to humans or entering in small places or even to start developing the prototype of a vehicle for humans and moving to Base of non-polluting energies such as electricity.
My first microrobot developed with the microcontroller PIC16F887 and the software of PICC, also the application to control the vehicle I did with App Inventor 2 and in the following picture we see this prototype.

2) Microrobot With Arduino and App Inventor 2

The importance of working with robot vehicles is that they are the future of transportation. It is obvious that the oil is finite and the way to transport us will be by electric vehicles and that is why we must experiment with these technologies.

Later I develop the same prototype but with the Arduino Uno board and add a robot arm to lift objects from 100 to 200 grams, in the following picture we see the example of this practical and simple application since Arduino has the bookstores that provided this work.

The video of this project can be observed below.

3) Microrobot With Arduino, LSM303D and App Inventor 2

Much of the material I used to develop all these prototypes was with recyclable products like the robot arm and the base to hold the microrobot, so one can save a lot of money to build it.

Finally to this project I add the LSM303D accelerometer and magnetometer, to monitor the angle of inclination of the platform where the vehicle was moving and to orientate me with the angle in which the vehicle moved in relation to the magnetic north pole, these values Could be seen in the application made with App inventor 2. In the following pictures we can observe this vehicle in action.

4) Microrobot With Arduino and Android Studio

Currently I am working with the accelerometer to measure the speed and displacement of my microrobot but this is giving me very high errors.

Then I show my latest Microrobot project but this time I developed it with Arduino and Android Studio. this work served me to compare its performance with App Inventor 2 and proved to be very stable and practical.
