Very Fast Line Tracking Robot

Line tracking is probably the most widely used navigation system for robots especially in student level robot competitions. This robot though will most likely shock all those students with its sheer speed.

Check out this hyper fast line following robot and see if you and your friends can build a robot to match its speed.

Line tracking requires a contrasting line on the floor and therefore is not the ideal method for general robot navigation but it’s a good start to get to know the basics of robot navigation and these basics can be applied to more complex technologies. Happy coding.

Ice cream stick robot……Another easy to make at home robot

This is an ice cream stick robot:

Google (Boston Dynamics) Advance in Robot Mule

Since being acquired by Google, the Boston Dynamics team has advanced their world famous robot mule. The most noticeable change must be in the power source, it appears to now be fully powered by batteries as the whine and smoke of the engine are now gone.

This technical advance again illustrates the remarkable strides we are making with robot development and I would really like to have a look at the systems in this robot. The engineering designs should be awesome. We want open source 🙂

Spread the word of this tech advance by sharing this post with your friends using the buttons and check out cool robots on Amazon using the links below.

Nature Inspired Robot Festo – BionicOpter

This nature inspired robot obviously takes from a dragon fly or similar insect. When we reach to the point of putting cameras and such on these things then we have the ultimate spy bots not to mention applications we can’t even dream of now. The systems on this small robot must be so cool, battery, power system, actuators, etc. Why can’t these be open source.
