This 2-Wheel Balancing Robot Kit is based on the opensource 2-wheel balancing algorithm which is transplanted to the Arduino platform. They key comonents of this self-balancing robot are an DFRduino Uno, a 6 DOF IMU shield, 2 12V DC motors, 4 analog rotation sensors and a dual motor driver. The custom-made acrylic case is easy to assemble, and solid enought for strutting and motion. It's egg-shaped outfit is definitely an eye-catching chic minibot, at the same time allowing extra areas for your own modules and add-ons. Through assembling this 2-Wheel Balancing Robot, the user will not only learn the 2-wheel self-balancing programming with Arduino, but also explore more cool possibilities with other modules on this platform, for example, RC control via Xbee, Blutooth communication via Bluno board.
How Does It Work
The first generation prototype balancing Robot from Kent.
Rev 0.2 is just designed for fun. ~.
As a product, the frame design of v0.3 is too weak because of the flaws caused by mechanical design. However it should be tough for the beginners to play with it.
So we improved it a little bit and finish the latest version as you can see.
