JunkBot2 SumoBot Featuring Adafruit DC Boarduino

Brad shared with us his Sumo Bot project that he built around the Adafruit DC Boarduino:

I am sending a link to a movie showing my Sumo Bot project I entered in the local competition here at the University of Northern Iowa. My bot is built with two gear motors and has sensors to detect the edge of the playing surface and bots to the front or rear. I used motor controllers with embedded wheel sensors to measure distance. I use your DC Boarduino for the controller. Thanks for all the tutorials and information about the Arduino system I have learned a lot.

From the video description:

Slightly cheesy movie of my Sumo Bot for this year. It uses a Boarduino from Adafruit for the controller. Four edge sensors, a forward bot sensor, and two rear bot sensors. Solarbotics gear motors using their ROME motor controller and wheel encoder set. The wheel encoders are used to measure distance traveled.

DC Boarduino (Arduino compatible) Kit (w/ATmega328): “If you’ve ever struggled to use a solderless breadboard with an Arduino, you understand how frustrating it can be! This clone acts just like an Arduino, and works with the latest Arduino software. For many projects it can even be preferable! The kit includes all parts necessary, the assembly is straightforward and well documented. Since this design doesn’t include a USB chip, you’ll want an FTDI USB 232-TTL cable or FTDI friend. Since the cable plugs right into the Boarduino, you can use one cable for multiple Boarduinos.” (read more)


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
