After line following robot and obstacle detection, building a balancing robot is most probably the next option for a maker. This video is the first part of a series of videos that explains how to build parts for a balancing robot using CNC machines and materials such as aluminum and nylon sheets.
As the video explains, most of the components are on the shelf while an Arduino microcontroller is the heart of the robot. Check out the video for more handy tips.
This video is the second part of the series where the designer Kris Temmerman shows us how to build a balancing robot. Here we can see that a Raspberry Pi board were added for complex tasks. The Pi board allows the engineer to install a camera and build an OpenCV application for face detection.
