Arduino for Robotics

With some of the basics of electricity, Arduino, we are now jump into Arduino Robotics.We are focuses on how to interface your Arduino to mechanical, electronic, and optical switches, as well as some different input control methods.

Robotics is a branch of AI, which is composed of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science for designing, construction, and application of robots.The robots have mechanical construction, form, or shape designed to accomplish a particular task.They have electrical components which power and control the machinery.They contain some level of computer program that determines what, when and how a robot does something.

Robot Locomotion

Locomotion is the mechanism that makes a robot capable of moving in its environment.There are various types of locomotions

Legged Locomotion :type of locomotion consumes more power while demonstrating walk, jump, trot, hop, climb up or down, etc.It requires more number of motors to accomplish a movement. It is suited for rough as well as smooth terrain where irregular or too smooth surface makes it consume more power for a wheeled locomotion.

Wheeled Locomotion:It requires fewer number of motors to accomplish a movement. It is little easy to implement as there are less stability issues in case of more number of wheels. It is power efficient as compared to legged locomotion.

Skid Locomotion:tIn this type, the vehicles use tracks as in a tank. The robot is steered by moving the tracks with different speeds in the same or opposite direction. It offers stability because of large contact area of track and ground.

For Making of robots using arduinoo you need to under stand how you can contro diferent motors using ardunio development board.
