3D Printed, Remote-Controlled Robot

As part of the Makerspace’s DIY Summer Program, students have been hard at work creating various projects to flex their engineering muscles.

Check out Sebastian and his 3D printed, remote-controlled robot. It features a custom 3D printed, arm-mounted controller, as well as an LCD display to relay information about the connection to the robot. Both the robot and controller are powered by Arduino Unos, which acts as the device’s brains.

The robot moves by using two joysticks that independently influence their respective treads on the device, thus earning the term “tank drive”. It even has a buzzer that can play “happy birthday”! We at the Makerspace are incredibly impressed with Sebastian’s project, and can’t wait to see what he creates in the future.
