How to Build a Mobile Robot Using Arduino | Part 5

I see you! Well, at least the robots will after this lesson! Last lesson we learned about infrared IR sensors, IF statements, and line following/avoiding. This week, we are learning about Ultrasonic Sensors, FOR loops, and object avoidance. Robot using Arduino and Ultrasonic Sensors – Objectives & Materials Each week I will provide you with […]

Visualize Data using the Arduino Serial Monitor & Plotter

Today’s post is going to be a bit shorter because I’ve created a video walk-through that explains the how-to’s. So if you’re a visual learner, you’re in luck! Visualize Data using the Arduino IDE I’ve been working on projects lately where data visualization is very important. So, as curious as I am, I wanted to […]

Circuits & Electronics Lessons for Grades K-4

Welcome back, Learn Robotics family! This week’s article is about circuits and electronics lessons for grades K-4. A lot of what I do is work with schools to create robotics, electronics, & STEM programs for K-12 education. One of the most common problems I see is a lack of electronics or circuitry classes. I think […]

WeMos WiFi Controlled Robot using L298N

Hello and welcome back to this week’s Learn Robotics tutorial! I’m going to preface this article by saying, man, did I dig myself into a bit of a hole with this one! For those of you on Instagram, I posted a video saying I was going to build and program a Wifi-connected robot using a […]

Program Arduino IR Remote to Control a Mobile Robot

Program Arduino IR Remote to Control a Mobile Robot

If you liked my article on Controlling an Arduino Mobile Robot using a Bluetooth Keyboard, then you’re in for a real treat! This week’s article will be focused on using an Infrared (IR) sensor to control the Arduino Robot using a TV remote. Before we get started, let’s learn about Infrared signals and sensors, and […]

four steps to writing an Arduino program

Four Steps to Writing an Arduino Program

Are you looking for a quick way to learn Arduino? We have a lot of beginners who visit the site looking for a complete, yet easy-to-understand guide on how to write Arduino programs. I wrote this tutorial to help people build Arduino programming skills in about 15 minutes. Read through this guide, follow the steps, […]

light following arduino robot using photoresistors

Light Following Arduino Robot using Photoresistors

In this article, I will show you a quick and easy way to attach a light sensor to your robot to follow or avoid light. But first, how will we detect light? We will be using photoresistors to determine brightness. A photoresistor, or photo cell, is a light detecting resistor (LDR). Photoresistors act just like […]

How to Power Your Arduino Mobile Robot

How to Power Your Arduino Mobile Robot

We’ve all gone through it. We’ve built an awesome robot with all sorts of features, but now the time has come to detach it from our computers and run some tests.  You think you’re all set, ready to go, but then you realize, wait… what about power? If you’ve forgotten to add a battery pack into […]

Arduino LCD using Sensor Shield V5

Arduino LCD using Sensor Shield v5

Welcome back to another LR tutorial! In this article, I will show you how to configure your Arduino LCD using Sensor Shield V5. Set aside 30-45 minutes, and you’ll be well on your way to displaying data from your Arduino or Sensors. In my Youth Robotics classes, we use Arduino Mobile Robots. I wanted to include […]
