From the Forums: AdaBox002 Mini Robot Rover Modified Into Upright ‘Balance Bot’ | #adabox

Coooooool project from Forums users PawArmy – building upon an AdaBox002 rover:

I went in a different direction with my bot. I converted it into a Balance Bot with the help of a few more components. The Feather CPU runs off the battery that came in the ADABOX while the motors run off an additional 2000mAh battery connected to a PowerBoost 1000. A 3D printed frame fits between two of the aluminum plates from the original robot and holds a MPU-6050 Accelerometer+Gyro module, both batteries, and a Feather Proto to carry the Feather 32u4 Bluefruit LE and DC Motor + Stepper FeatherWing.

This is a work in progress but here is my github repo and a Video of it in its current state.

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.
