This is about the progress of my robot project.

Like most of my projects, I have an idea and go from there.
Some times my ideas work.
Some times they don't.
I am going to make it out of plastic (PLA) on my 3D printer.
When I make mechanical projects on my printer, I like to design them as a frame structure (skeletal), I like to see the workings.

This currently is working as I imagined. (well sort of any ways)
I want to make a robot, but in it's current state I would say it's an R.O.V. (Remotely Controlled Vehicle)
I have written an application for my phone (or other android device) to control it via Bluetooth.

For me to call it a robot I need to add sensors and make it do things on is own.
I plan to do this.

I have tried to separate my progress into posts in the right order.

Well I now call it my robot, it can now do things on it's own.
It can follow lines, it can draw, can display messages, knows the time of day, I can give it voice commands.

The application for my phone has more functions:

I will continue when I feel like writing again.

All the videos I have made on this project.

Here's some pictures I have take during it's construction and not used in the posts.

If you like what I have done, or want to know more.
Please leave a comment below.


  1. will you make it available for download?

    1. I could.
      If you want me to upload the STL files I will.
      But at the moment this is a make it as I go project.
      Things get changed as I find things I could do better, or if something didn't work right.
      I still have a lot of work to do on it.
      It could take sometime before I finish.

  2. hi, your works so good for students. thanks. i wanna do Rover bot. how is made rover software (cam, navigasyon, ip server, servo control)

    1. This is some of my early work, I find it much easier to use a web page based control.
      I have done some Instructables on how to control things through an IP Server using a camera and servo.
      There are some more Instructables on how to make your server and web page to control things.
      Hope this helps.
