[Sticky] Other Robot Projects
Also don't forget that I2C requires that both the clock and the data lines be pulled up to +5Volts (with 4.7K resistors each)
Nice start. It is all a learning experience and fun pass time even if you never get to build a "real" robot.
Getting good encoder based motorized wheels is the foundation for any robot and that is the hardest to find for a medium sized robot base unless you have the money to just go out and buy an electric wheel chair which would make the most ideal robot base or restrict yourself to one of those toy robotic kits and concentrate on how to program them instead.
Any of the 3D printer owners on the Forum looked into the Mars Rover mentioned in another thread here on the post?
Not exactly 3D printed but still pretty impressive and cool. If i had the skills and tools to build one I'd make a full size one to drive around.
The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not “Eureka!” (I found it!) but “That's funny …”

My first steps in the robotics arena : https://www.instructables.com/id/EEZYbotARM/
I just finished printing+assembing this thing, tomorrow begins the electronics fun...
Nice project. I made one. Just remember that when using the bluetooth modules that they're limited to 3.3 volts. The 5 volts that the arduino uses is likely to kill them
I ended up buying a handful of the bi-directional level converters that adafruit sells. They change the 3.3 to 5, and the 5 back down to 3.3
