[William] Had originally built a little Security Bot to roam the halls of his house while he was not at home. He wanted a little bit more and started Security Bot 2 to include a good pile of sensors and add pan and tilt control to the onboard camera. Thanks to ordering pieces from a “who’s who” list of robotic and electronic hobby shops, the bits and pieces quickly arrived making assembly less tedious.
Packed on board of the 4WD platform are IR switches, IR distanace sensors, line sensors, Ultrasonic sensor, an Xbee (soon to be replaced with a WiFi Shield), pan/tilt brackets/servo, SpeakJet/TTS/Speakers, LCD, battery, serial motor controller, ICSP pocket programmer, Arduino Mega 2560, DSS Circuits Fuel Gauges, plus motors, batteries, camera, leds and a wiimote connection. (whew, that’s a mouth full)
All put together with some perfboards, breakout boards and a lot of jumper wire Security Bot2 is ready to patrol your premises!
