- Rebuilding a dream -
My goal here, is to rebuild the famous walkman vbug 1.5 from Mark Tilden. Many thanks to solarbotics for the hand written note of Mark Tilden that I found on solarbotics.net.
This robot is not working, it is just a dummy walker. The electronic come from old stepper controller. This dummy walker is build to give me courage and inspiration to keep going in the construction of this 5 motors walker.
I really want to reproduce this incredible walker. The mechanic is easy and for the electronic, I would love to use Mark Tilden circuit of VBUG 1.5. I have just found a nice PCB board to mount the electronic.
The circuit below is suppose to be the vbug circuit. This is NOT the original, I have clean and add some personnal notes on this circuit. Click here ( 586 Ko)to see the original circuit form Solarbotics.net.
Each part of the circuit have a number beside for identification. The circuit is divide in 4 section. This is useful for explanation.
Section 1 is the light seeking part.
Section 2 is the resistor IC socket to make some tuning with resitor.
Section 3 is the microcore.
Section 4 is the motor drive.
Please help and send comments or observations on the circuit above. Just fill out the comment section below. If you doubt about something, just write it :-)
What is number #33? or what does LLBS ( #10 ) mean? Every questions are in the comments section, so just write what you thing it mean.
Thank you very much for your time and every update will be put here.
