Parallax robot


Me (Théo) and Pierre (France) we worked on the parallax robot ,photo

which has two servo motors,one Arduino card and a DC Power Supply. We worked to write a C code. In the video you can see our moving robot.

our operating robot

You can notice that the robot doesn’t go really straight ; it’s because the two servo motors are not the same. So we had some difficulties to write the program.

For the future, we will change one of the servo motors.

thanks for watching our video Pierre and Théo 🙂

 you can see beneath a part of our code:

Motors and servomotors

Our objective is to do some projects with moving motors.

At first, we will have to test motors and servomotors.

To test motors we will use Mobile Robot Kit 2 Wheels that has 2 motors and one rear caster ball. This platform works with Romeo V2-All in one Controller.


 In the picture beneath, you can see another kit that we will use to test motors and robot’s movements.


We will use an Arduino card and an Arduino Motor Drive Shield (see the picture beneath) that we were given by Spanish teacher M. Mosquera Taboda. This card will allow us to connect two motors.


Testing servomotors will be possible with our Parallax Arduino Kit.

This kit has two continues rotation servo motors, so we will test robot’s movements.
