Interfacing servo motors controllers (SC08A and SC16A) using Arduino

Recently, the Arduino main boards with Atmel microcontrollers have its popularity increases due to its easier programming techniques as provided with many useful libraries in which various sub-functions can be called easily. In the next section, we are going to interfacing SC08A and SC16A using one of the most popular Arduino mainboard, Arduino Duemilanove

Scorpion Mobile Fighting Robot (ScorBOT)

The Idea of Scorbot comes from the Hollywood famous movie ‘The Scorpion King’ starring by the retired star wrestler ‘The Rock’. The outlook of Scorbot is illustrated to a scorpion with 2 arm and a powerful and poisoning tail behind. Scorbot can perform some human like fighting movements for example right hand front punch, side punch, defend posture and etc (Scorpion Kung Fu seven styles). The scorpion’s stinger which is illustrated by a gripper is one of the weapons for fighting. For mobility, Scorbot is driven by two dc brush motor at the base and this allows Scorbot to move quickly, stably and effectively.
