How to make a Balancing robot with RoboHeart

Hello and welcome back. In this project, we will learn how to make a balancing robot using the RoboHeart development board. I have described more details about this board in a previous project. You can read it using this link. I used the two gear motors and a piece of rigifoam for this project. Therefore, you can make this project on a low budget. And we can easily use the RoboHeart library example for that.

Step 1

Firstly, identify these components.

Step 2

Secondly, let’s create the balancing robot chassis. For that, I used a piece of rigifoam. But you can use any other material.

Step 3

Thirdly, install the RoboHeart development board on top of the base.

Step 4

And then, mark the center points of the robot base and glue the gear motors to those points.

Step 5

Next, connect the gear motors to the Roboheart board.

Step 6

Now let’s create the Lipo battery support. Use the following images for that. You can design it as you like.

Step 7

And then, install the Lipo battery on the supporter. Next, connect a jumper wire to the switch terminal.

Step 8

Now, connect this robot to the computer, and let’s upload the program. For that, follow the steps below.

  • First, add the RoboHeart library to the ArduinoIDE.
  • RoboHeart library file — Download
  • And then, open the example code in the library.

  • Now, select board and port. After, click the upload button.

  • While loading this program, press and hold the boot button for 2 or 3 seconds.

Step 9

Now remove the USB cable and connect the robot wheels to the gear motors. Finally, connect the battery to the RoboHeart board.

Now, place the robot in a vertical position and press the reset button. OK, enjoy this project. The full video guide is below. So, see you in the next project or tutorial.
