I’m a member of the Aurorans group ( meetup.com page, ning site). Danny
Staple and myself were tasked with putting together a robot that would be
simple enough to assemble by interested newbies to robotics (although I hardly
qualify as an expert myself). Danny & I agreed on some basic hardware and set
to work. Danny’s version, the Eee bot, is documented here. This page documents my
version of the robot, Chairbot.
Chairbot is so named because the main framework is formed by an old steel
chair. I wanted a robot that had a display and sensors a reasonable distance
off the ground in order to better interact with people and happened to have
some scrap laminated chipboard and an old chair lying around - Chairbot is the
result. Please see the links below for updates.
