Here comes the open source Snow Plow Robot | Open Electronics

We present a caterpillar robot based on Arduino Uno, remotely controlled through a Play Station 2 wireless controllers.   Since we are not insensitive to solutions making life easier, we have considered the idea of creating and proposing something that could help us avoiding the cold and fatigue of using the usual manual shovel and at the same time, we opted not to replicate something already available but a new fun and technologic device. We therefore decided to start developing a Snowplow Robot, remotely controlled, proudly showing a robust mechanics and fine electronics all implemented with cards easily available on the market. The result is a miniature version of a true snowplow, caterpillar tracks, with blade and light projector mounted on top to light the way in the dark; everything is controlled by a remote control from the PlayStation 2. Let us see how our caterpillar robot is assembled, starting from the mechanics and then describing the electronics […]
