lerasbot

Project Name

Lerasbot (Leap Motion - Raspberry Pi - Robot)

Objectives

The main objectives of Lerasbot project are to construct a robot that has ability to be controlled using leap motion controller through the Wi-Fi. The other objectives are:

  • To test and understand how the robot worked.
  • To learn how the robot communicates between the computer (Raspberry Pi) and leap motion controller.
  • Develop the circuit and hardware that include the module for motor control.
  • Write software that can receive the data from leap motion to Raspberry Pi.

Requirements of the Project Lerasbot:

Parts Price Links Comments
Raspberry Pi Model B+ Board$39.99 CADhttp://goo.gl/QClJDT (http://www.canadarobotix.com)This is the essential part of the project. It is simply the brain of the robot.
Wall Adapter Power Supply$7.39 CADhttp://goo.gl/NksVBb (http://www.canadarobotix.com)This is an adaptor for Raspberry Pi. It is necessary for group members to boot up the Raspberry Pi.
SanDisk 8GB Micro SD Memory Card$12.80 CADhttp://goo.gl/IXsJ5c (http://www.robotshop.com)This is an adaptor for Raspberry Pi. It is necessary for group members to boot up the Raspberry Pi.
Edimax Wi-Fi USB Adapter$7.39 CADhttp://goo.gl/aPX8mV (http://www.amazon.com)This is a Wi-Fi dodge for Raspberry Pi. It is necessary for Raspberry Pi to connect Leap Motion.
2WD miniQ Robot Chassis Kit$44.78 CADhttp://goo.gl/4c5IVw (http://www.robotshop.com)This is a chassis kit, which comes with 2 gear motors, 2 wheels, 1 Metal Ball, 2 mounting brackets for gear motors, and 1 chassis. This kit is necessary for us to build the robot.
Battery Holder – 4xAA Flat$1.18 CADhttp://goo.gl/qHsih9 (http://www.robotshop.com)This is a battery holder, which will supply power to the gear motors and Raspberry Pi.
170mm F/F Premium Jumper Wires$4.65 CADhttp://goo.gl/InrQOk (http://www.robotshop.com)These wires will be used to connect electronic parts to each other. It comes with 10 wires.
170mm M/M Premium Jumper Wires$4.65 CADhttp://goo.gl/RvFmPx (http://www.robotshop.com)These wires will be used to connect electronic parts to each other. It comes with 10 wires.
Pololu Dual DC Motor Driver 1A, 4.5V – 13.5V$5.82 CADhttp://goo.gl/YO03S3 (http://www.robotshop.com)This chip will be used to control gear motors.
Pololu Voltage Regulator$11.71 CADhttp://goo.gl/LlLyXp (http://www.robotshop.com)This chip will be used to supply power to Raspberry Pi and the gear motors separately from same battery holder. Otherwise, we will need extra battery holders, wires, batteries and also extra space on robot. So, using regulator is more efficient.
Breadboard$3.99 CADhttp://goo.gl/gcIrlN (http://www.canadarobotix.com)This is where all the electronics will be connected.
GPIO Ribbon Cable$3.69 CADhttp://goo.gl/b6C4wQ (http://www.canadarobotix.com)This will connect Raspberry Pi to the breadboard.
Pololu Expansion Plate$12.82 CADhttp://goo.gl/0knuuV (http://www.robotshop.com)This is a necessary part for the robot. There is no enough space on chassis for all the parts that will be used for robot. Also, we do not want to affect the balance of robot in a bad way by putting everything on the main chassis.
Leap Motion$79.99 CADhttp://goo.gl/13dLeq (http://store-us.leapmotion.com)This is the controller for the robot.
Total Cost (before tax):$240.85 CAD
