The epitome of robotics is obstacle detection and avoidance. With a simple HC-SR04 sensor, you can detect objects with using ultrasonic waves (sound). In this project, we will use the HC-SR04 sensor and write software for our Robot Tank to avoid obstacles. We'll make it a bit more complex by utilizing a servo motor to scan around the tank before responding. For this tutorial, I used the Kookye Robot Tank kit from Amazon. You can also pick up a tank chassis, Arduino, Arduino Sensor Shield, and L298N motor controller to complete this project. Here's a lower cost tank chassis on AliExpress. You'll need to get some hardware (Arduino, Motor Controller, HC-SR04, etc.) to build the project. This is a good option for those of you who already built an Arduino robot car and now want to build a tank. This tutorial assumes that you have already:
