Arduino Robotics workshop day2

  1. 1. Arduino Robotics Workshop Day 2 Sudar Muthu (@sudarmuthu) http://hardwarefun.com/arduino-workshop http://github.com/sudar
  2. 2. What we have seen so far? Basics of Robotics Using Breadboard Digital and Analog I/P and O/P Serial Communication Controlling DC Motors Assembled the robot Made it runhttp://hardwarefun.com 2
  3. 3. Today we will see.. Varying the speed of the motor Play some tunes using the buzzer How IR works Making use of IR to find obstacles Make the bot avoid strangers Making it autonomous Some Advanced stuffhttp://hardwarefun.com 3
  4. 4. Varying the speed of the motor using PWMhttp://hardwarefun.com 4
  5. 5. Playing tones in the buzzerhttp://hardwarefun.com 5
  6. 6. Playing sound We can generate a square wave at specified frequency using tone() function Usage: tone(pin, frequency, duration)http://hardwarefun.com 6
  7. 7. Teaching robot to avoid strangers Two IR LED’s. One receiver, one transmitter Both face the same direction Keep transmitting IR waves If receiver receives waves, then there is a obstacle Otherwise keep moving
  8. 8. Let’s see some codehttp://hardwarefun.com 8
  9. 9. Let’s get some food http://hardwarefun.com 9
  10. 10. What are the limitations that we have faced so far?http://hardwarefun.com 10
  11. 11. Using Delayhttp://hardwarefun.com 11
  12. 12. Issues with delay Your microcontroller is going to sleep You can’t read or write while in delay Eg: You can’t detect an obstacle when the bot is making a turnhttp://hardwarefun.com 12
  13. 13. How to fix it?http://hardwarefun.com 13
  14. 14. Using Timer library https://github.com/JChristensen/Timerhttp://hardwarefun.com 14
  15. 15. If we don’t read the pin, then we miss the valuehttp://hardwarefun.com 15
  16. 16. Methods in Timer library every(long period, callback); after(long duration, callback); oscillate(int pin, long period, int startingValue); pulse(int pin, long period, int startingValue); update();http://hardwarefun.com 16
  17. 17. Interruptshttp://hardwarefun.com 17
  18. 18. Hardware support Pin 2 and 3 Supports LOW, CHANGE, RISING, FALLING No software support is needed Can be removed as wellhttp://hardwarefun.com 18
  19. 19. Let’s see some codehttp://hardwarefun.com 19
  20. 20. What if we need it on other pins?http://hardwarefun.com 20
  21. 21. Software Interrupts http://code.google.com/p/arduino-pinchangeint/http://hardwarefun.com 21
  22. 22. Can be used on any pinhttp://hardwarefun.com 22
  23. 23. Let’s see some codehttp://hardwarefun.com 23
  24. 24. Some ideas to try Making your robot follow a line Making your robot stay in a table Replace IR with ultrasound sensor Control the bot remotely using RFhttp://hardwarefun.com 24
  25. 25. Things I have tried Controlled it using Android phone Controlled it using JavaScript and WebSockets Controlled it using Bluetooth Controlled it using RF Added a missile launcher to it https://github.com/sudarhttp://hardwarefun.com 25
  26. 26. Links Arduino – http://arduino.cc Asimi – A simple bot using Arduino http://hardwarefun.com/project/asimi Getting started with hardware programming http://hardwarefun.com/tutorials/getting-started-with- hardware-programming Getting started with Arduino http://hardwarefun.com/tutorials/getting-started-with- arduino-and-avr
  27. 27. Questions Thank You Sudar Muthu (@sudarmuthu) http://hardwarefun.com/arduino-workshophttps://github.com/sudar/arduino-robotics-workshop
