Multiple Robots With One Joystick


Demonstration how I controlled 6 robots with one joystick in my Pecha Kucha presentation. In this video, I use an Omnibot, Omnibot 2000, Wall-e, Dalek, R2D2 and a flying AR Parrot Drone.

All robots are fitted with an EZ-B Robot Controller and connected to the EZ-Builder Robot Control Software. The software will allow up to 5 EZ-B Controllers at one time.

To control the movement from each robot, a movement script was used with respective scripts per movement direction (forward, left, right, reverse, stop).

To synchronize the head servos, the Relative Servo control was used. Each robot head servo was related to 2 master servos (horizontal and vertical). The ratio for the relative servos was set to 1:1.

I love the way R2 looks the wrong way )
