Arduino self balancing robot – Update #4

Coming up, another short update on my self balancing robot! In this update, I focused solely on improving the connections, structure and placement of the components on the robot. (P.S. I have uploaded the SketchUp & STL files on Github....

Arduino self balancing robot – Update #2 & #3

After much consideration, I think I will try to make a self balancing robot first before a ball balancing robot as to get a better understanding of “balancing” algorithms first. Hence, I’m working on a self balancing robot now instead....

The classic 5110 Nokia Screen

The classical Nokia 5110 graphic display screen has a resolution of 84 x 48 pixels & can be used to display simple graphics & data in various projects. Therefore, in this post, we’ll be exploring how we will interface the...

Arduino ball balancing robot – Update #1

This is the 1st update of the robot since I last posted on this project (I’m rather busy with school & other stuff). In this update, I have roughly sketched out the design of the robot, how it would function and also...
