Robotics – Prototype #1

Since a couple of time I had in mind to continue with some servos, sensors and breadboards to build some robots, that soon or later will conquer the world

But how to start? Due to a small project in my job I came into touch with Node.js. Beside of that I’ve just stumbled upon a book called JavaScript Robotics: Building NodeBots with Johnny-Five, Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and BeagleBone (Make) and I thought – hey, let’s combine my nerdy desires with a new language I’m currently using in my job – win/win situation.

As my first project I wanted to continue with some servos (see my former project PongReal, where I’ve done some action with a servo and a motor), so I organised some continuous rotation servos, attached an Arduino-clone and a Raspberry Pi + Wifi, to create something automuous.



Parts used:
Arduino Clone – Simpleduino
Raspberry Pi 2
5V Battery Pack 20,100 mAh
2x continuous rotation servo
Raspi Cam

The code is not very sophisticated – it is based on the API-examples of Johnny-Five’s documentation. Do I didn’t make any efforts to publish it on my GitHub.
