Step 1 : Gather the componentsIn the first step, we gather the components for the Remote controlled Robot prepare for the project. We have provided the list of components and you can purchase from our online store or order from Amazon/Flipkart as per your choice.
We ensure good quality parts and test everything before shipping it to you. You can also walk in and buy these from our Janak Puri store.
Components required :
1) 4 x DC Geared Motors : 100/200 rpm (Buy here)
2) 4 x Compatible Tyres (Buy here)
3) 2 x DPDT Switches (Buy here)
4) 1 x Chassis (Mechanical body) (Buy here)
5) 10 Colored Rainbow Ribbon Wire : Length as per requirements (Buy here)
6) 3 x 2 pin Screw Terminals (Buy here)
7) 1 x General Purpose PCB (Buy here)
8) Power Source (Battery with Snapper/DC Adapter) : 9-12V DC (Buy here)
9) Tools (Buy here)
Step 2 : Prepare the Remote Controlled Robot Basic StructureNext, we mount the 4 motors on the chassis and tighten it up using the shaft screw available with the motor. If the shaft screw is not available, you can always use a clamp of appropriate diameter to fix the motor. Ensure that the motors are tightly attached and not wobbling. Check the image below for a sample of assembled robot chassis.
Step 3 : Wiring the Motors together
Once we complete the 2nd step, we get 2 wires each from 4 motors which gives us 8 wires. Now we’ll select the 2 Red wires from Left side motors and join them together and 2 Black wires from Right side motors and join them together. We repeat the process for the right side motors.
So after joining all the wires as explained above, we will have a total of 4 wires, 2 from left side and 2 from right side. We can connect a battery and test the movement to ensure that the remote controlled robot is moving properly and all the motors are in sync. If not, please change the polarity as explained in the video.
Step 4 : Prepare the remote using DPDT switches for Remote Controlled Robot
In this step, we’ll explain how to build a DPDT (Double Pole Double Throw) switches based remote control which allows us to control the robot very efficiently. The process is a little lengthy so we allow you to follow the video below and complete it yourself.
In case you don’t wish to make the remote, you can buy this assembled remote and directly drive your remote controlled robot.
