WAV3BOT is an Arduino-bot Controlled by a MPU-6050 Accelerometer on a Hand Controller
WAV3BOT is a simple Arduino-bot built with a L298N motor driver and MPU-6050 accelerometer – the body of the ‘bot is built with not much more than a square of cardboard & hot glue. Breadboards are used to expedite the prototyping process – even on the hand controller! This is about as simple as it gets, and yet there’s still plenty of room to expand upon and further customize your own WAV3BOT! A step-by-step tutorial is available here on Instructables and all the code is here on GitHub.
Here’s the clip of Vignesh demonstrating the ‘bot live on Show & Tell recently:
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.
