how to make solar powered robot

Posted on Feb 5, 2014

It is based on the Miller solar engine and has no digital electronics involved. But before we get started, it must be said that a robot is defined as `a mechanical intelligent agent which can perform tasks on its own`. Note that the definition does not state that it has to be in a particular `form`! So, though the robot we are going to build will look crappy, it will work and delight

your heart. This project is more of a `proof-of-concept` than the actual construction of an amazing robot! It we were to build an actual `human-looking` robot, the difficulty level would catapult manifold. With that being stated, here we go: `Moderately Challenging` - This DIY project involves building a basic circuit with a solar panel, capacitor, diode and transistor. The ability to make connections by reading a circuit diagram is absolutely essential though we try to simplify it in this tutorial. It would help if the `builder` is familiar with the use of the soldering iron. Once you have gathered all the essential components of the right specifications, it would take less than half an hour to make the circuit and have the robot up and running! 8. The other terminal of the motor is connected to the 3300uf capacitor which is in turn connected to the other terminal of the solar panels. (The diagram shows 4700uf. Don`t worry. As you will see later, the values can be altered to get different effects for the robot. ) Ans: This project will help you develop the confidence on many future electronic projects. Do not worry if you don`t get it right the first time. The connections are simple but they may get confusing for the first timer. So make atleast two or three attempts before giving up. If you make those attempts, you surely will not have to give up is our belief. Ans: The diode can actually be discarded. The diode is...
