How to Make a Remote Controlled Floor Cleaning Robot at Home

How to Make a Remote Controlled Floor Cleaning Robot at Home
Cleaning the house on regular basis is a very demanding and challenging task especially when there are kids in the house. In this Instructable, we might take a step towards the solution of this problem. Lets make a Remote Controlled Floor Cleaning Robot as well as a toy that can make your kids help you in cleaning the house and fun part is they will be playing all the time and the house will still be clean.

Step 1: Watch the Video

A Video tutorial is the most precise way to understand a "How To" Project. This Video clearly shows How to make a Remote Controlled Floor Cleaning Robot at Home. However, also make sure to visit Step 2 for additional information and pictures.

Step 2: Order Parts: Components

  2. Soldering Iron - http://amzn.to/2qC47qG
  3. Pliers - http://amzn.to/2qIxndN

Step 4: Lets Make the Robot

1.Take a small piece of Electrical cable raceway, open it and on the bigger piece make 2 holes at both the sides.
2. Take a geared DC motor, align the motor shaft to the hole and mark the points on both sides.
3. Make holes at both the marked points.
Note: Surely watch the video for better understanding...
4. Apply hot glue and attach the motors to the electrical cable raceway on both sides.
5. Take 4 different coloured wires and solder the wires to the motor terminals.
6. Take two spare CD's and using super glue, paste a plastic circular piece at the center of both the CD's.
7. Now, apply some hot glue and fix the CD to the motor shaft.
8. Take a circular cloth and insert a thread arount the edges using a needle.
9. Place the CD at the center of the cloth, pull the thread tightly to wrap the CD in the cloth.
10. Repeat the step for other CD as well.
Our Floor Cleaning Robot is ready. It is now time to make a Controller for the Robot.

Step 5: Time to Make a Remote Control

Time to Make a Remote Control
1. Take a half cut PVC pipe and 4 two way switches.
2. Using hot glue, paste two switches together and make two such pairs.
3. Refer to the schematic and make connection between the switches.
4. Make 4 holes in the PVC pipe, insert and attach the switches to the PVC pipe.
5. Refer to the schematic and connect motor wires to the switch pairs.
6. Now, Take a General Purpose PCB Board and cut out an adequate size to fit two 3.7v Li-Ion Batteries.
Note: Watch the video to learn How to make a Li-ion Battery Holder at home.
7. Using Pliers, Cut four office paper clips.8. Solder office paper clips on the PCB board opposite to eachother, so that they can hold two Li-Ion cells.
9. Refer to the schematics and connect the Battery Holder to the remote control.
Our remote controlled floor cleaning robot is ready to be used. Now, get a clean shining floor while playing with the Robot.
