ok so get all these.i got them mostly from broken toys,i'm sure you can find them at
radioshack.
- a AA battery holder -> holding the batteries
- some solder wire -> soldering
- some wires -> connecting motor to switch,to batteries
- 2 AA batteries -> powering the motor
- 2 1.5V motors (preferably identical) -> making the robot move
- a slide switch -> ON,OFF
- 2 SPDT (Single Pole Double Throw) switches -> used for antenna
- 1-2 paperclips -> glue on the antennae so it is longer
- some glue sticks -> use with the hot glue gun
Step 2: Get all the tools needed!

i borrowed all the tools from my father,once again,they should be available at
radioshack
- wire cutter and stripper ->cut wires and strip them
- pliers ->shape the antennas
- hot glue gun -> glue the switch and the SPDT switches on the battery holder
- a soldering iron -> solder and connect wires together
- a multimeter -> check the battery
Step 3: So,let's get started!
check the battery's power - =D
if its' on <<good>> use it
if it's on <<bad>> change it (in my case,regharge it)
(http://cdn.instructables.com/FSM/17NW/FX557I2Q/FSM17NWFX557I2Q.LARGE.jpg)
(http://cdn.instructables.com/FW4/MC3N/FX557I4H/FW4MC3NFX557I4H.LARGE.jpg)
Step 4: Some wires
solder the wires to the AA battery holder - i made the wires extra long on the blue
battery holder so i don't mess it up,=)
don't forget the 3th connection!!!
it's the wire that connects the 2 batteries together
i changed the battery holder
Step 5: The antennae,part 1
(http://cdn.instructables.com/FGT/LMUI/FX557IM0/FGTLMUIFX557IM0.LARGE.jpg)
(http://cdn.instructables.com/F20/5WBZ/FX557IBX/F205WBZFX557IBX.LARGE.jpg)
glue it with the hot glue gun in front of the holder try to do it as perfect as possible
<-i'm a perfectionist->
try to do as in the picture
Step 6: The antennae,part 2
with the pliers,bent the paperclip into a straight line.
do your best, =\
Step 7: The antennae,part 3
(http://cdn.instructables.com/F2P/EURZ/FX557IPJ/F2PEURZFX557IPJ.LARGE.jpg)
cut the antenna with something pointy =)
I used the wire cutter/stripper
you will now have 2 small lines...
Step 8: The antennae,part 4
(http://cdn.instructables.com/FO9/KQE2/FX557IRY/FO9KQE2FX557IRY.LARGE.jpg)
(http://cdn.instructables.com/FM3/QY9N/FX557IUN/FM3QY9NFX557IUN.LARGE.jpg)
with the pliers,bend each line like in the photo
try to make them identical by putting one on top of the other or bending them
together
Step 9: The antennae,part 5
the last part!
glue the 2 metal things on the top of the SDPT switches
(http://cdn.instructables.com/FNX/D2MY/FX557IZL/FNXD2MYFX557IZL.LARGE.jpg)
(http://cdn.instructables.com/FNA/4KNO/FX557J1Y/FNA4KNOFX557J1Y.LARGE.jpg)
Step 10: The motors
glue the motors at an angle of 40 degrees.
once again,do your best
Step 11: Some wheels!
(http://cdn.instructables.com/FH7/2UFQ/FX557J6Q/FH72UFQFX557J6Q.LARGE.jpg)
(http://cdn.instructables.com/FZN/1OWY/FX557JCY/FZN1OWYFX557JCY.LARGE.jpg)
i got these from a kinder toy,i honestly don't know where to buy some.sorry
glue it to the back of the AA battery holder.glue it a little lower so the holder doesn't
touch the ground.if it does it will not go straight and will go slower
Step 12: Some more wires
(http://cdn.instructables.com/FUA/L55A/FX557JEO/FUAL55AFX557JEO.LARGE.jpg)
(http://cdn.instructables.com/FWS/H23K/FX557HU6/FWSH23KFX557HU6.LARGE.jpg)
ok so now connect the wires,do your best and look in the picture
Step 13: Some decoration!!!
be creative!
you can use my model,or create your own!
i also added some electrical tape to the motor for better grip
check out my other instructable!
http://www.instructables.com/id/how-to-make-a-homemade-ONOFF-switch/
(http://www.instructables.com/id/how-to-make-a-homemade-ONOFF-switch/)
Step 14: The circuit diagram
(http://cdn.instructables.com/FWT/862G/FX557JQ1/FWT862GFX557JQ1.LARGE.jpg)
well follow the pic and connect the wires
zoom it so you can see better
Step 15: How does it work?
when the robot hits a wall,it triggers the L or R switch which maked the opposite
motor reverse for a couple of seconds.this makes it avoid obstacles
the picture may explain alot
Step 16: Questions
any question,comments,ideas on how to make it better?
post them here!

I am a beginner and I have started to do this. Now I am collecting the stuff can u tell
me that are the motors will be operated by a remote or not.
dannystaple (/member/dannystaple/) fshahid1
Nope - this robot looks like no remote
is necessary - the diagram on step 15
explains it - the two tiny switches that
the antennae are connected to control
the direction of the motors, so the
robot is completely automatic. It will
roll around the floor until it bumps
things and spin around to go
somewhere else - pretty much until the
batteries die.

Can you post a video how to make it so it easier to understand please?
sai kumar (/member/sai+kumar/)
can anyone please tell me where to get those spst switches
in india
sudip chatterjee (/member/sudip+chatterjee/)
hello sir i am persuing b.tech (1 year)(ec)
your robot is marvouleus , but can give me a hint of making a very very simple robot
or a circuit design of four wheel dc toy moving in any direction as the direction given
by us with the switch.
i am trying to to make your beetle robot.
please give the idea soon.
adit0078 (/member/adit0078/)
aint gud

can we use other normal wheels compatible to this motor
rishabkhincha (/member/rishabkhincha/)
where do we connect the SPDT switches
