See below for the Arduino code used for this demonstration.


Hardware

Pedro Robot is equipped with 4 mini SG90 servo motors.

  • The servo motor 1 placed at the base of Pedro Robot allows it to rotate 180 degrees on itself giving a very wide field of view of its environment.
  • The servo motor 2 placed shoulder level allows it to rotate 180 degrees vertically.
  • The actuator 3 the elbow makes it possible to lift objects gripped.
  • Servo 4 is Pedro Robot's gripper which allows it to catch any object in its field of view and move.


Pedro Robot is a programmable robot with the Arduino IDE thanks to an embedded card equipped with an Atmega328 microcontroller with a storage capacity of 1024 bytes enabling it to record a sequence of 255 positions on each axis and to replay them continuously. The Pedro board is powered by 5V 4A and has 2 pushbuttons each connected to a pilot led allowing different functions to be realized (example: button 1 to register or initialize the movements of the robot, button 2 to replay or stop robot movements, "You're only limited by your imagination" Pedro Robot can be controlled by 4 potentiometers, each connected to an axis, base, shoulder, elbow and gripper. The Pedro card has a USB TTL serial link to connect Pedro Robot with a computer.
