In this video I will show you the steps to building your own robot and talk a little about the programming it to move. I wanted to create a robotics platform that allowed me to modify things anytime I needed to. I also wanted to build it with parts that I had around my shop already.
Combining these two goals, I came up with the Hack-Bot. Once complete, you can mix, match, change, and experiment all you want with the platform.
Please check out the video and click here for two Arduino sketch files I created for the project. The schematic is below.
