PC Control These demos and projects allow the robot to be controlled via a computer.

ArbotiX Commander Control - These demos and projects control the Robot using the ArbotiX Commander, the handheld Arduino based remote control.

Direct Control - These demos and projects control the Robot directly from sensors connected directly to the Robot's control board.

Pose Control - These demos and projects allow you to create and playback a sequence of poses.

Serial Control - These demos and projects control the robot using a serial packet protocol.

Standalone - These demos and projects are deisgned to let your robot function without a computer or additional microcontroller.

Wireless Control - These demos and projects allow you to control the robot wirelessly - usually by replacing the Serial Connection with XBee modules.

Reference - These articles have technical details regarding the control and operation of the robot.

Build Steps

Pre Step: Peel Your Plastic

Some of your plastic pieces will have paper masking on one or both sides. Peel the masking paper off before getting started.

There also may be some dust on your parts. This is from the laser cutting manufacturing process. It is harmless and can be cleaned up by wiping with a rag or being washed with water.

For each step before starting read through the whole step and look at all the photos. It helps to avoid mistakes when you have read through all the parts of a step first.

  1. Attach 4 x M4*50 M/F Standoffs in series. Make 3 of these.
  2. Attach 2 x M4*50 M/F Standoffs to 1 x M4*50 F/F Standoffs, using 2 x M4 Spacers between them as shown. Make 3 of these.
  3. Stick the Large Rubber Feet to the bottom of the Bottom Plate.
  4. Seat the USB Hub into the 2 x USB Hub Mounting Brackets and attach to the Bottom Plate using 4 x M3*8 Bolts.
  5. Attach the first set of Standoffs (longer set) you made to the Bottom Plate using 3 x M4*8 Bolts.
  6. Place the Middle Plate on the threads of the first set of standoffs and attach the second set of standoffs (shorter set), holding the middle plate in place between them.
  7. Prep the 1/4-20 x 9/16" Socket Cap Bolt by sliding it through the Top Plate and two washers.
  8. Thread the 1/4-20 x 9/16" Socket Cap Bolt into the SR300.
  9. Attach the Top Plate to the standoffs using 3 x M4*8 Bolts.
