Ultimate 2.0 User Manual + building (01-03)

The Ultimate-V2.0_10-in-1 Robot Kit Instructions introduces you the kit, provides a quick start guide, and describes the steps for building three forms of the robot, namely Robotic Arm Tank, Beverage Robot, and Camera Dolly.

 

For the building of the other seven forms, you can download and read the following documents:

3D Capture-A

3D Capture-B

Detecting Robot

Rolling Tank

Self-balancing Robot

Robotic Ant

Catapult Ram

Ten forms of the robot

1. Robotic Arm Tank

Robot Arm Tank consists of a highly -adaptable track chassis and a flexible robotic arm. It is designed to help you grip, lift, and deliver objects in various terrains.

2. Beverage Robot

Beverage Robot is made up of a mobile chassis, a variable angle support structure and a self-adaptive bracket. It can independently pour beverage into a glass (or do other similar action) and deliver the glass to you.

 

3.  Camera Dolly

Camera Dolly consists of a mobile chassis and a 360-degree swivel base. Add a smart phone or a camera onto this robot and start filming from a low angle. You can also preset a path for the robot to follow in order to capture the best moments of your life (Motion noise may affect the sound recording).

 

4. 3D Capture A

 

3D-Capture-A-350x350-1.jpg

3D Capture A is a simple yet powerful 360-degree rotating platform, consisting of a cell phone holder and a rotating structure. Add a cell phone to realize 360-degree panoramic filming or let the robot film while moving around small objects. When connected with an app, it can simulate 3D scanning beautifully.

5. 3D Capture B

Similar with 3D Capture A, 3D Capture B also can take photos from 360 degrees. Differently, 3D Capture B takes photos by rotating the object while keeping the cellphone stable. With a free third-party software called Arqspin, this 3D Capture B can make animated rotating pictures just like other 3D-effect images.

6. Detecting Robot

Detecting-Robot350x350-1.jpg

Detecting Robot is a tracked robot with line-following sensor and ultrasonic sensor. It can be controlled by app and there are three modes for this robots: manual mode, line-following mode and obstacle-avoiding mode. Also, with great off-road performance, it can cross the sand or rugged road smoothly.

7. Rolling Tank

Rolling Tank is a robot which can move by rolling over. When hitting an obstacle, it can roll over and keep moving on.

8. Self-Balancing Robot

Self-Balancing-Robot350x350-1.jpg

Driven by two encoder motors, Self-Balancing Robot can move back and forth on its own.

9. Robotic Ant

Robotic-Ant350x350-1.jpg

Robotic Ant is a hexapod robot mainly constructed by connecting rods. By technical use of several link mechanisms and two motor drivers, it simulates the ant's configuration, so that it can move forward, backward and turn around freely.

10. Catapult Ram

Catapult-Ram350x350-1.jpg

Catapult Ram is an adjustable table tennis catapult. One of the motors of Catapult Ram tensions rubber band with connecting rods, while another changes the catapult direction with gear drive, so that you can launch table tennis or other objects with Catapult Ram.

Attention: Wiring of the motors

Note: Make sure that you connect the motors as shown in the preceding figure, so that the block-based example programs provided in Block-based Programming and the default settings on the Makeblock app can work properly.

Programming instructions

Supported programming software/platform

You can program Ultimate 2.0 on mBlock 5, mBlock 3, Arduino C, and control it with the Makeblock app.
