Hola yo compre la BQ zum i despues de 2 años aun no e podido cargar programa y bq no me dio ninguna respuesta .
Ahora provare con una mega y un shield.
Alguien sabe si la bq la an podido cargar?
Pregunte en el foro de los creadores y nada ,tampoco por privado.

saludos

It looks like the board that was previously recommended is no longer for sale. Im looking to use the ROMEO Mini BLE: https://www.dfrobot.com/product-1367.html

Anyone have recommendations on the app for control?
Anyone have example sketches?

buenas noches.

Lo primero agradecer por todo el trabajo realizado y sobre todo compartido, llevo tiempo queriendo empezar con el tema de arduino y me gustaría intentar hacer el robot. La pregunta es:
-Se podría hacer con arduino uno y un modulo de bluetooh?

Hola Javier ,estamos construyendo un microraider con mi hijo de 10 años ,ya lo tenemos todo impreso ,los servos,la bq zum core, descargo el archivo de la pagina y quando lo quiero cargar con arduino no me deja ,sale error y no se si esta bien el programa o no lo hago bien .

Hola Javier;
Gracias por tus aportes y tu trabajo. Voy ha hacer ( intentarlo porque es la unica forma de aprender ) mi primer Robot. El crio tiene el Zowi original, del cual entiendo que me pueden valer muchas piezas. Voy a imprimir la version del robot tortuga , auqnue esta del "punk" no esta nada mal , lo unico que no se coo has hecho esas decoraciones , pinchos etc... ¿ has modelado sobre la plantilla base imagino no?. Otra cuestion es el tema de la electronica, plaza zum core.. y varias cosas mas. Una vez tenga eso comprado y montado.. el programa para los movimientos del robot.. de todos los que tienes en tu pagina de repositorio.. ¿cuales son?, El zowi que tengo solo tiene pies. aqui hay que añadir, cabeza. brazos y muchas cosas nuevas.. ¿donde podria encontrar un tutorial algo mas detallado de todo esto?. Muchisimas gracias por adelantado.

Hello,

This looks like a great project.

Would any one have a suggestion one what type of servo motors to use?
The lower ones look more powerful.
Are all the upper ones the same, or is the head ones smaller?

Thanks for any help..

Holaa,
Me encanta este diseño pero me gustaría saber cuál es el torque de cada tipo de servo para saber cual comprar antes de empezar a imprimir.
Un saludo.

Hello,

i've printed all the parts of Kobuki Robot: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1507662/#comment-874023
But now, i have to deal with the command and program of the Bot.
It seems that the BOT is thought to be driven by an arduino card and a shield to link it to a smarphone to command him directly.
Am i correct? Does any body could help for the choice of the card and the soft?

Thanks to all!

Hi,

We are using a BQ Zum core board, which is an Arduino UNO sized board with bluetooth. Another option could be mounting an Arduino (like the nano) and connect it to a bluetooth module like the HC-05.

For sending the commands by bluetooth, we are using a smartphone with an app called "Arduino RC". There are many apps for sending commands by bluetooth on Android, Arduino RC works fine.

Hi, I'm new to Arduino (apart from configuring 3d printer firmware which doesn't really count) but interested in building one or more of these little guys. The Zum Core is hard to get here is Australia and is very expensive on Amazon. I'm interested in a cheaper alternative.

Would an Arduino nano and the bluetooth module work or would I need another shield as well for servo control?

Thanks.

Hi lionman,
I have some friends who has made this robot using an Arduino nano and a bluetooth module. The only problem is that you will need to power the servos from a 5/6V source different than the Arduino regulator, because like IanKrasser said, it can't provide enough current to the servos. An easy solution if your battery pack is bigger than 6V is mounting an UBEC and connecting it between the servos and the battery.

My understanding is that you'd risk burning out your arduino by running the servo-motor amperage though it. Part of what the motor shield does is provide the power to the servo, while the arduino just provides the logic control.

Thank you!

I had a look on one of the numerous arduino RC bluetooth (car): the phone send a letter to the board and the board send a command to the servo:
=> Is there any loop to make that kind of BOT go foreward : turn motor A from, turn motor B from.... ?

One more time, thanks a lot for this very cool project.
