R12 - Construction
The video about R12
The mechanics of R12 is made from 3mm Aluminium sheets I have cut with my CNC v3.2.2.
The IOT2020 is connected to WLAN through a mini PCI module. You can control the robot through a Browser interface.
I got all parts from my sponsor RS Components, thus the links in the table point to their online shop.
Most of the electronics is on a tiny board that can be plugged on the GPIO header of the IOT2020.
I have soldered two linear voltage regulators on the board, but only one is needed.
The power comes from a 7.4V rechargeable Battery with 2000mAh which is good for more than one hour of operation.
The red LED flash light is an option.
I am using an IP LAN camera type ACM-3601 to transmit live pictures to a Browser.
The camera normally uses PoE, but I have connected the +3.3V and one of the GND pins of the IOT2020 directly to the board of the camera.

Test drivesR12 is a Rover I will take with me when going to maker fairs. If you visit me on one of those meetings you can have a test ride.
More robots are available in my RoboSpatium.
