"Puff " - Enter the Dragon
Here is my Latest Arduino Based Autonomus Robot
that is able to detect and put out flames.
Full Details on how to build http://letsmakerobots.com/node/6427
Arduino controlled tracked chassis.
Puff is able to go forward,backward,turn clockwise and anticlockwise.
Puff detects object in front.
Puff detects if he is about to go off a cliff.
Puff detects flames (candles)
When Puff finds Fire he will scan his head to find the HOTTEST part of the flame and then orientate himself to point directly at it.
Puff will then blow out the flame with a strong motorized Fan.
If he fails to blow out the flame he will enter "panic mode" and run off in another direction to avoid damage to his circuitry and paperwork (there was a lot of paper work)
Final Programming is a bit of mystery to me at the moment as there are so many possibilities...
Awesome bot. Papercraft and robots, who'd of thought that combination would work so well.
Thanks for your reply....
.....Yes the Paper-Combo works well and it takes the eye away from the unfinished wiring.
----- soon "Puff " will sport a full Skin - its not finalized yet as i have a few other "Tricks" :o to hide underneath.
Video Update - introducing Panic Mode & Cliff Mode.
If he fails to blow out the flame then he panics and runs off so he does not "burn his Chips"- if there is a cliff in the way then readjust path.
Neat! I love the paper dragon!
Wow! Best design I've ever seen :)
Great idea ;)
What about cost?
Haha! Made my day
When do you programm him to detect smoke, I recognized the “Rauchkugeln”
Puff now has an Arduino fired Dragons Breath.
Fighting fire with fire!
cars"it burns burns burns"ten
based on your system, i see that it is related to my fire alarm/bugurley alarm/ taking my stuff alarm combo, diffr modes, robotic communications, well, yaknow that stuff XD
Have you posted your alarm/Burglary as a project here on this site (i searched but unable to find) - do you have any links to it.
very neat! what system do you use for him to be able to breath fire? can he do more than one fire breath without having it reloaded?
The Pyro system is based off a well known Magicians trick - basically using a very-very small piece of “FlashPaper” fired by the Arduinos electronics :o
- it is a one shot system - though installing extra pyrotubes (with different payloads and coloured flashpaper) would also be very easy to integrate.
Ah, cool! i like it a lot... does it shoot automatically under certain conditions or do you control it?
