To make the maze I used a box of MDF 25cm x 25cm and lid of another box in MDF 20cm x 20cm, which was mounted to the maze itself with bits and pieces of a handle sticks “giant” (5mm in diameter), a abandoned toy from my 3-year-old daughter. Four pieces of plywood served to make the middle frame. In this framework has been set the first servo axis that has stuck in the middle of one side of the cover 20×20 and is responsible for movement in the Y axis. The second servo, which is responsible for movement in X axis, is attached to the larger box and has its axis stuck on one side of the intermediate frame so as to be perpendicular to the first servo.
The code, which can be seen below, was adapted from code found on this site: http://www.windmeadow.com/node/42
I replaced the piece of code that prints the values on the screen for control of the servos. To improve the stability of the code make an average of the last 20 readings, adjust the scale and apply the results to the servos.
Nice work, Melquíades!
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
