If you’re a homeschool parent, and you want to add Robotics to your child’s education, then you’ll want to read this article!
In the previous tutorial I shared a beginners guide to get started with Raspberry Pi. In that article I covered how to burn Raspbian OS onto micro SD card. Now to use the Pi as a computer we need lot of other peripherals such as monitor, HDMI cable, Wireless keyboard, OTG adapter (for Pi Zero). […]
Recently I started learning Python, and I was amazed by the simplicity and capabilities. So, I thought let’s connect it to Arduino, and see what I can do with it. Communication between Arduino and Python isn’t a new concept, There are many modules available for Python that help in the process. In this tutorial, I’m […]
In this article, I will be sharing with you… how to get started with NodeMCU ESP8266 development board how you can program it easily using good old Arduino IDE and take your project to next level with WiFi connectivity. Before we get started, I assume that you have a basic knowledge about Arduino and its […]
Learn to program pan-tilt servos using buttons and potentiometers. Full tutorial including wiring diagrams and code samples.
Learn how to use dweet.io and freeboard.io to create real-time dashboards for your IoT projects.
In the last tutorial, we fetched data from connected devices published on dweet.io. Now, we’re going to create a Python script to grab device data for a database. If you haven’t read the previous tutorial, I recommend completing that before attempting this one. This tutorial is most suitable for those who are familiar with SQL databases and […]
For this tutorial, I’m going to walk you through the process of fetching data from dweet.io using Python. Fetch Data from dweet.io using Python dweet.io is a website that is similar to twitter but for connected devices. You can access sensor readings through a dweet.io URL in a JSON format. We will use this website […]
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 […]
Ready to make your robot react to its environment using sensors? This week, we are focusing on Infrared Sensors to solve a common challenge in robotics: line following and avoiding. Now is a good time to make sure your robot can move. If you haven’t completed lesson #3, I recommend checking that out first before proceeding […]
Hello LR Nation! I’m back with Week 3 of the Beginner Bots Tutorial Series. Who’s loving this Robotics tutorial series? If that’s you, go ahead share it (link to Facebook) with your friends! We also have a full Robotics eCourse that dives more into analysis, interactive projects, and includes a completion certificate! Check that out here, […]
Welcome back to Beginner Bots Tutorial #2. This week, we are focusing on assembly, wiring, and learning about sensors. If you haven’t read Part 1 of How to Build a Mobile Robot using Arduino, I recommend checking that lesson out before starting this one! Completely new to the world of robotics? Then, you’ll want to check […]
Welcome everyone to this week’s article on the Learn Robotics blog! I’m going to be starting something completely new called the “Beginner Bots” tutorial series. In this series, I’m going to show you how to create an Arduino-based mobile robot start to finish. These weekly lessons are designed to walk you through the steps to […]
Do you have a 3D printer kit? Maybe the popular Anet A8 like me? Then you might have run into the infamous leaking nozzle problem. I decided to write this article because of the leaking nozzle problem I was facing with my Anet A8 wasn’t properly documented online. I either couldn’t find an appropriate solution […]
The Robot Maze Challenge a classic lesson that I like to teach at demos, showcases, short presentations, and guest lectures. With minimal equipment, you can teach students the fundamentals of flowchart programming, logical thinking, process flow, and introductory programming all in one simple activity. Why this STEM Challenge is My Favorite The reason why I […]
