Wiring Guide - Flockbot

Diagrams will follow in a future update. This page lists the connections necessary for the Flockbot, listed by the Arduino pin.

The following is the wiring for the WW-11 wheel watcher models only.

Digital Arduino Connections

Digital 0V, TX, GND on Bitwizard BoB
Digital 1RX on Bitwizard BoB
Digital 2Interrupt (Pin A) on Left Wheel Watcher
Digital 3Interrupt (Pin A) on Right Wheel Watcher
Digital 4+, M, (B,-) on Left Wheel Watcher
(B and - are tied together with a < 10kOhm Pulldown
Digital 5+, M, (B,-) on Right Wheel Watcher
(B and - are tied together with a < 10kOhm Pulldown
Digital 6PWM to Gripper
Digital 7Free (Formerly LCD I2C Clock and VCC)
Digital 8Free (Formerly LCD I2C Data and GND)
Digital 9PWM to PiCam Servo
Digital 10PWM to Right Wheel Servo
Digital 11PWM to Left Wheel Servo
Digital 12High Bump
Digital 13Low Bump

Analog Arduino Connections

Analog 0Right-Front Facing IR Sensor
Analog 1Right Facing IR Sensor
Analog 2Center IR Sensor
Analog 3Left Facing IR Sensor
Analog 4Left-Front Facing IR Sensor
Analog 5Battery Indicator

Battery Indicator

The circuit consists of VCC portion of PWR_IN on the Arduino connected to a 51kOhm resistor and the GND connected to a 39kOhm resistor. The individual values should be 50kOhm and 40kOhm.

Connect the 51kOhm resistor to the 39kOhm resistor to form a loop. At the center, between the two resistors, solder in a wire. This wire will connect to Analog 5 on the Arduino. Cover all exposed wires with electrical tape and shrink wrap the entire line. This should appear to be a thick arch connecting PWR_IN with Analog 5.

Wiring Guide - Flockbot (Arduino with CMUCam2 Variant)

This variant does not make use of the Raspberry Pi, instead allows the Arduino to directly drive the robot.

The following is the wiring for the WW-11 wheel watcher models only.
