Robot based on USB (PIC18F4550)

Robot based on USB (PIC18F4550)

Hey friends , sorry for being late , I was very much busy in my works and I was really finding it hard to manage time for blogging as I had my exams and I was working on some websites .

Here is my latest work,

Its a robot based On USB Interface , I have not used any stepper motor in it , but some high torque LOW RPM motors did job for me perfectly.

The robot is controlled with pic18f4550 microcontroller, the pins are interfaced with uln2003 and then finally to l293d (hbridge).To generate more controls i used some logic gates like AND and NOT gate .The firmware is programmed in MPlab.
The 360 degree camera view is provided with a kinda robot arm mounted with camera , which can provide view in both x and y plane.
The other features are motion detector,IR object detection, laser ranger , and also included a small blue ray laser to bust small things like balloon, tapes etc etc etc etc etc. its connected and controlled with USB, for the moment is wired but it can become completely wireless by adding just an extra wireless hub .
All controlls are generated with .net c# (visual 2010).




I am currently working very hard to prepare a detailed tutorial on this robot.
I will be posting then soon to my website


Thanks for Reading
