SELF BALANCING ROBOT

Post by SHUBHAM GUPTA on Sat Mar 19, 2016 1:47 pm

SEGBOT or Self balancing Robot

Its an autonomous robot, moving on two wheels which sense and analyze the distance and self balance its body for perfect motion.

Hardware part needed for this project is almost same which you use for a 4-wheeler robot. Its chassis material and all its same but the only thing you have to keep in mind while selecting the chassis is its vertical dimensions should be greater than its horizontal one for its easy balancing. In this project we will be using low rpm motors i.e. a 60-100 rpm at max.

Now comes the software part of the project. Maximum students get stuck when it comes to program a device. But don't worry we are here to help you Smile . Here we will be dealing with ARDUINO IDE.

Students who don't have this software can download it from the running link in this paragraph.
Arduino IDE download

This project can be made in two ways :

A) BY USING AN ULTRASONIC SENSOR "HC-SR04"
B) BY USING A SINGLE STAND MODULE CONSISTING OF  3-AXIS ACCELEROMETER + 3-AXIS GYROSCOPE  "MPU-6050"

First method by using an Ultrasonic Sensor :

Components needed :

1) ARDUINO NANO/UNO.
2) Ultrasonic Sensor Module HC-SR04.
3) Dual Motor Driver. "l293d" can be used here.
4) 2- 60-100 rpm DC motors.
5) 2-3 9v Batteries.

you may use presets to control the resistances of the sensors .

This method is less precise than the second method but its calibration is easy.

Second method by using Accelerometer+Gyroscope :

Components needed :

1) ARDUINO NANO/UNO.
2) 3-Axis Accelerometer and Gyroscope module MPU-6050.
3) Bluetooth module HC-05 or HC-06.
4) Dual Motor Driver. "l293d" can be used here.
5) 2- 60-100 rpm DC motors.
6) 2-3 9v Batteries.






This is just a brief introduction regrding this project. In our next post all related Datasheets, schematics will be provided to you.

Thank you

Stay tuned Stay Awared
