Meet Fred – a distributed processor bot using 12 Arduino’s and I2C to communicate between boards

Bruce writes-

Fred is  a distributed processor bot using 12 Arduino’s and I2C to communicate between boards.  Oh and the name started while I was coding the voice recognition board I needed a name to get the robots attention.  The mechanical and electronics are about 85% complete after 5 months of building.  Lots of the code is written and partly tested but needs to be ironed out with the full system with board interactions.  I only have nights and weekends to work on Fred dam day job gets in the way of fun. I’m planning on showing off Fred in the near future at one of your Show & Tells.

Awesome !


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
