How do robots move? What is the most basic component that enables a robot to move? The answer is a motor. Many types of motors, when combined with sensors and controllers, are used in industrial robots.

In this blog post, we will guide you through creating a simple DIY toy robot. This will help you understand how a motor adds motion to the machine. You can make a DIY toy car using Havi Elements – DIY Robotics Starter Kit or Havi Elements – DIY Robotic Toy Car.

Feel free to name it as you like – whether it is simple bot, simple robot car, toy bot, toy robot, moving buddy or even “inni mini or sini”. For the sake of clarity, we will use the term simple robot.

How does DIY simple robot work?

When you switch on the Power Element, the power bank passes the stored current to the Power Element. Subsequently, the Power Element transfers the current to the connected Motor Element, providing the necessary power for the rotation of the attached geared motor. Once the DC geared motor initiates, the connected wheels begin to rotate, causing the car or toy robot to move.

To change the car’s direction from forward to reverse, simply toggle the motor switch on the Motor Element.

Alternatively, you can arrange the simple robot in a way that one wheel remains touched to the floor while the other is slightly elevated. This configuration will make the robot move in a circular direction. Feel free to contact us for further execution of the same.

Similarly, you can use water colors to make the patterns using DIY simple robot.
