Rubik's cube Robot solver

hey kas, i'll tinker with the hardware with what you suggested, it is quite frustrating.

and i was thinking that my ccw and cw tuning might have been wrong. from which perspective it to be seen as clockwise or counter clock wise? (looking at the servo knob or from the back of the servo? thanks so much kas!

From the back of the servo

Out of curiosity, where are you based ?

i'll tinker with the hardware with what you suggested, it is quite frustrating

From the video, seems you are missing the reseat() function Please confirm your CubeMover sketch version

hey kas, im using cube mover 1.2 is that too early? and i'm based in Melbourne Australia.

Please use the most recent release V1.3 introduced the reseat() function that briefly opens/closes grippers between two moves and helps reseating the cube on the base of the claw (post #359)

Also look at Cube::downArmCW() & Cube::backArmCW() I added a small rotation overshoot to ensure that moves are really square Please adjust to taste

How do you power servo's & microcontroller ??

When ready, please post a new video - robot only - from one side - with faster moves

have a try,begin!

Hi kmimax, welcome

|500x309

Nice 8) Don't forget the bracket for the camera

If I use my smartphone's LED light,OK?

kmimax: If I use my smartphone's LED light,OK?

Bright idea ;)

Led's provide constant intensity and constant color temperature lighting to the cube they reduce fluctating ambient lighting effects The smartphone led is probably too weak for the job

Try it and let us know

Souli: Hello, Kas. I want to make a last years project about your Rubik's cube solver. Do you think it's possible to complete this project without any electronic knowledge?

If you think so, could you please send me all the links, files, instructions,... to complete your project? Yours sincerely, Souli

PS: My final degree depends on your reply ;) (sorry for my bad English i'm from Belgium)

Hi Souli,

This Rubik's solver is a major project

Electronic knowledge as such is not mandatory The major point is mastering the Arduino ecosystem Of course, precision crafting is of the essence ;)

All instructions and files are included in post #1

Good luck for your project

Thank you man! ;)

Hello, I am a study in Industrial University of Vietnam. Currently, I'm working on the robot solve rubik project and are having a lot of trouble connecting the software to each other. You can guide yourself to solve this part is not. Thank you very much.

Well ::) I can help you for the project integration

I won't teach you Python, C++ and Arduino IDE There are lots of smarter tutorials on the Web for these specific points

Efficient communication (English) may also be an issue ;)

Thank you, if I use the camera to determine the color, how the data will be processed.

darik2: Your Rubik's cube Robot solver is very interesting. Could you give me the link for the android app?

Check your mail ;)

I have one more question. Cube Explorer is no longer available on the site. Page http://kociemba.org/cube.htm does not exist. Do you have this program for PC or is there any other option for (PC / webcam version) Regards

Cube Explorer is still on-line, just clic 'Download'

Just found a cool implementation on Instructables

mrgakoy96: Thank you, if I use the camera to determine the color, how the data will be processed.

mrgakoy96 To help you, it will be easier if you explain what exactly you are trying to achieve Did you already build your rubik's robot ?? Please let's have a photo

sorry kas, today i can answer you. My project is still in theory, I want to do the project with an android phone, can you share me detailed documentation: drawing, software and how to connect, ... thank you!

OK mrgakoy96, welcome

As already told, all info and drawings are included in this thread Start building your bot, share your progress and get support from the community Good luck ;)

Hi kas, Can u plz tell which arduino u used Can u plz give the wiring of servos and arduino

If possible plz send the Android app
