HOW TO MAKE A ANALOG ROBOT ?
We all love watching robot and playing with them. In films Transformers, Terminator top in our list. This article will give you a preliminary knowledge about how to make a robot by yourself . Building a robot is not very troublesome if you stick to the basic of Analog. Problem arises when it comes to wireless, matching the frequency and ability of the antenna to transmit that is quite a tedious job, but here there is no need to care about that .
Lets come to the point , for a perfect functioning of a analog robot , one need constant voltage supply. Variation of voltage or less voltage will give low power to drive the gear motors. So the first thing you need is a SMPS or Switch Mode Power Supply.
A SMPS is an electronic power supply that incorporates a switching regulator in order to be highly efficient in conversion of electrical power. Like other types of power supplies , an SMPS transfers power from a source like electrical power grid to a load while converting voltage and current characteristics. Ideally , a SMPS dissipates no power ,in contrast regular power supply regulates the output voltage by constant dissipating power in pass transistor. This power conversion efficiency is a important characteristic of SMPS.
Here I have used a SMPS of rating 12V/2A.
Other things that I need:-
1. A Platform.
2. 4 Tires
3. 4 Gear Motors
4. 2 Switch having 6 terminals
Gear Motor :-
Here I have used gear motor but we can also use Servo Motor.
The main connection lies with the SMPS. There are 5 slots in SMPS
1. Live (L)
2. Neutral (N)
3. FG AC
4. DC: 12V/2A
5. V ADJ
