Arduino controlled I-Sobot

Arduino controlled I-Sobot

This project uses an Arduino to play back the IR sequences that were captured form the I-Sobot’s remote control. The next step is to add some sensors, and make the robot fully autonomous. Check out the link for more information about the build, including the source code.

I decoded the Tomy Isobot IR protocol and made a shield for the Pro Mini 8Mhz to attach like a backpack to the Isobot. I have attached some quick pics. It is completely self sustained (runs off Isobot’s 3 Nimhs), has an IR receiver to decode button commands, IR led to send to the bot, and an extra analog port for a distance sensor like my Maxbotics sonar (or a ping).
