So I'm starting a new tutorial series on building a "follow-me" robot. I was originally inspired by a hackster.io post that people have been trying to get working for a while, with varying degrees of success. While I don't have anything constructed yet, that will be changing in the future!

Part 1 of the "Follow-Me" Robot Tutorial is ready to view!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-18WhZ3FNk

This video introduces the "theory of operation" of how and what the robot will use to figure out how to follow the user! Be sure to also check out the Github repository for more!

Please let me know what you think - either here, on the comments of the video, facebook, patreon, etc - thanks!

Build A "Follow-Me" Robot - Part 5 - Chassis Assembly: Frame and Deck


I'm building of the actual frame and deck of my robot's chassis in this video. A bunch of metal-work and fabrication, using basic hand and power tools!

Build A "Follow-Me" Robot - Part 6 is ready to view!

Gotta have a way to mount your motors! In part 6 I show how to position and attach the motor mounting brackets to the frame and deck of my robot's chassis.

Build A "Follow-Me" Robot - Part 7 is ready to view!

Now that I have a way to mount the motors, I can proceed to do just that! But
before that can be done, I have to build some bearing blocks to support the
drive shaft, in order to keep the robot's weight off the motor itself. I also
needed to modify the motors a bit...
