A Desktop Arduino Social Robotics Kit
LittleBot Buddy is the 9th robot that we have made at Slant Robotics. The first 8 were directed entirely at makers and STEM education. We wanted to make robotics and STEM exciting and fun. It's no different with Buddy. Except now anyone can enjoy this robot. Whether you are a builder or not. You can just "hang out" with Buddy.
Buddy 3D Printed Arduino Robotics Kit
Buddy is a DIY arduino robotics kit. Based on the Arduino Nano you can build Buddy and then download and edit his primary arduino code to learn how he works and make him work better.
This kit does require assembly and knowledge of the Arduino IDE.
Included in Kit
- Arduino Nano
- Littlebots Mainboard
- Ultrasonic Sensor
- All 3D Printed Parts (colors will vary)
- Arduino Code for the kit.
Before Assembly. Attached the servos to the board and run this code. It will preposition the servos for assembly. It will put them in the position to have buddy with his head forward, center, down and level. If you run this code ahead of time then you may ignore the manual positioning instructions in the build manual and just assembly him in the position just stated
Achieved by connecting the Buzzer to Pins S9 on the board
How He Works
Buddy uses his sensors and motion to learn about and react to the world around him. He constantly updates this model in order to know how to react and generate what he thinks is around him.
