My son and I would like to build a robot that can take out our trash. So far, we've read enough articles and tutorials to learn the basic parts that are needed, but we haven't figured out which model #s to purchase yet.
First - Should we start with a small version first (can lift up and take out the bathroom trash), or should we go for broke and build a big enough robot that can handle our real city trash bins (standard blue bins @ 75 pounds full)?
What servo model # should we purchase that are strong enough for a 75 pound full trashcan?
- - We need 5 servos (L wheel, R wheel, 1 to lift trash 6 inches (like forklift), 2 servos to grip trash can from side.
What receiver model # should we use and how many do we need?
- - We heard we should consider the roboclaw receiver?
What remote control should we purchase to communicate with the receiver(s)?
If we build the full size version, what power supply should we use? A rechargeable car battery?!!?
We are pretty new, are there tutorials that we should review first?
