Handy little household robot
For cleaning purposes I recently built this little robot. It uses a modified toothbrush to sweep floors. While doing so it whistles happy melodies in order to indicate how much it enjoys that work! With its infrared ‘eyes’, the robot detects obstacles and avoids them.
Since my household is now extraordinarily clean, I don’t need the little robot anymore. So I decided to release it in Brasília as you can see in the video below:
Here you can find further hires images of the robot.
And there, you can find the C-source code for the microcontroller. – In case you want to have a glimpse inside the little head of the mini robot.
