In this series of articles we’re going to build the “4WD Hercules Mobile Robotic Platform” from Seeed and Robot Shop.
This robot features knobby tires, solid construction and powerful motors!
Checkout this animation of Hercules moving a heavy bottle of water:
In addition to building the basic kit, we’re going to add:
- Arduino DUE control for extra processing power
- Infrared remote control
- Infrared sensors for near object detection
- Ultrasonic sensors for long range object detection
- Line tracking sensors
- Wireless networking
It’s going to be an exciting class this fall!
