Turn the Asuro robot on just before pressing the upload button in the Arduino environment. Replacing the ATmega8 The ATmega8 that comes with the Asur robot uses an undocumented protocol to upload programs and is locked so you can’t change it, meaning you couldn’t use Arduino to upload programs to it. I made the following corrections.

Odometer sensors and line following sensors are now read continuously and the values of the sensors are continuously available as global variables. This has an effect on the measuring values of the sensors. Pop the ATmega8 out of an Arduino board and place it in the Asuro make sure it’s robof right way around.

Click here for a manual to install a development environment for the Asuro robot on a Linux system. When there is strong sun-light the odometry sensors are nor working correctly. PollSwitch I also wrote a small program that sends the value of rlbot switches on the Asuro robot to the PC. These are being compiled roobt the gcc compiler that is supplemented with avr-gcc. In reality this was not mm.


With this system the voltage for the Asuro electronics is now always 5.


The result of this modification is a stable measurement from the odometer sensors that are comparable with the measurements with 0 mm distance. The solution is to make a small orbot that enables the switching voltage regulator only if the input voltage is higher than 4.

My rechargeable AAA batteries have a capacity of mAh. Introduction The Asuro robot is a small in C programmable robot.

Arduino Playground – Asuro

My modifications to the Asuro robot 3 After experimenting with the Asuro robot for a while there was a problem. I wrote a small program that continues sends the data from the odometer sensors and the line follow sensor via the infrared transceiver to the PC.

Since the Asuro robot runs at half the speed of the Arduino board 8 MHz instead of 16 MHzyou’ll need to change a couple of files in your Arduino preferences file you may want to make a backup of the original file first:. The connector on the Asuro robot has an extra pin that prevents that the connector from the battery-pack is connected in the wrong way.

This library has functions for reading the odometer and line following sensors, you can make turns or ride for a certain distance and much more. The program uses the line follow sensor to stay on the black line. I placed ausro piece of isolation tape on the circuit board and the problem is solved. The gear with the odometer reflection sticker has a lot of play about 3 mm.


Asuro Robot

A solution is to use a voltage regulator. I wrote a small program that makes the Asuro robot drive forwards for mm. The program uses the line following sensor to stay on the black line and switches to detect a collision. Arduino sketch for simple controls: Motor left, white asuuro A better solution is to use a switching voltage regulator.

Follow the instructions in the Asuro manual which is also on the CD that comes with the Asuro. I decided to make a rboot Asuro library based on the Asuro library v2. For more info pleae look at this Forum Post. The Asuro Robot and a maze This time the Asuro robot drives through a maze. Take the ATmega8 out of the Asuro keep it around, because it’s programmed with a useful self-test. You need to solder asuri couple of extra wires onto the Asuro to program it.

I built a small shroud around the line follow sensor.
