This is a small update on my college Mini Project – Self-Balancing Robot.
Till now we have bought all the parts need for the project (will update the BOM as soon as the robot is running)
The structure is very simple, we used old wooden switch board drilled four holes on its corners and used threaded metal rods with washers and nuts to secure the boards in place.
Used a standard pair of angled motor mounts to mount two metal geared motors and attached a 4cm diameter wheels.
So far so good! Will keep you guys and gals updated.
