I’m testing the first program for the claw. EDgar can now grab a Lego. The claw sensor is not yet used, but it will be in the next program version. With the sensor, it will spot closing the claw when it will detect an object.
Adding a claw gripper to the robot EDgar.
Replacing EDgar’s wheels. Bigger ones mean faster robot. I stripped the old one. That is the first reason to replace them.
Last week, my son told me he wanted a robot. I took out this old robot from the storage. I never get further than having the motor and a home made H-Bridge fixed to a piece of wood. Back in time, buying a microcontroller was not conceivable.
