Build your own robot, wire it up with sensors, and let it roam on its own. Robotics with the Boe-Bot includes step-by-step assembly instructions, circuit-building, and programming for the BASIC Stamp-based Boe-Bot Robot.
This abbreviated series of lessons (gleaned from Robotics with the Boe-Bot) was created to encourage Scouts who are interested enough in robotics to obtain their Merit Badge, but not enough to go “too deep, too quickly”.
Visit this Stamps in Class Mini Project to learn how uphill doesn't have to be a battle (unless you want it to be); pair your Boe-Bot with an accelerometer for use in competitions, outdoor exploring, and more!
Follow this Stamps in Class Mini Project to turn your BASIC Stamp 2 HomeWork Board or Board of Education into a tilt-activated RF controller for the Boe-Bot.
Visit this Stamps in Class Mini Project to learn how to program your Boe-Bot to follow lines using QTI sensors, and to integrate additional sensors without sacrificing performance.
Learn how to make your Boe-Bot successfully navigate a maze containing dead ends, sharp turns, and more with this Stamps in Class Mini Project!
Pairing a Memsic 2-axis accelerometer with XBee RF modules makes a powerful and fun wireless tilt controller for your robot. One XBee module and a Memsic Dual-Axis Accelerometer are mouted on a BASIC Stamp HomeWork Board. The other XBee module mounts on a BASIC Stamp controlled robot. SumoBot wrestling is a perfect application for this!
