Robot BEAM

Hi, my name is Brian Fields. I have been working with BEAM technology since 2001. My original robot creations range from simple spinners to complex walkers. The following robot, inspired by Mark Tilden’s Vbug, is custom designed by me. It utilitized five servos.

    WOW! that is the best beam bot i have ever seen, the walking is near flawless. Is is Solar?

    Hmmm, very nice, your bot looks just like Harold Ilano’s Hermit, even the tactiles look like his design. Have you been on his site? He an i are good friends and i am working on a 5 motor right now.

    My son and I built a BEAM bot from a kit we got at Solar Robotics (google it). Great intro to robot building and relatively cheap. We’ve got a bunch of scrap electronics collected now and our next one is going to be from scratch. There are a few books available on their site too that were really useful.

    The sensors on the back les were a nice touch; don’t remember seeing those before.

  5. do you live in new …
    do you live in new orleans cuz that looks my friend ben house and that looks like his brother in the backround

  6. Very true, as this …
    Very true, as this was made from the ground up from scratch, it did take me a while to make though as this was the third robot design. I don’t have the schematic for this robot anymore but it’s the same as Mark Tildens(founder of BEAM) Vbug

  7. The great thing …
    The great thing about B.E.A.M robotics is not only are the very inexpensive to make and requite very little processing power, they can be essencially made from scrap components, but they are also extremely rugged and hard to break once they are made.

  8. dude… this is …
    dude… this is just GREAT i cant belive this.. its amazing 😀 i wanna make myself a beambot with just a solar engine and a micromotor…but i dont know how.. could u send me a scheme or something plz contact me in youtube i’d be realy grateful. 🙂

  9. Amazing movement …
    Amazing movement and sensor reactions. This is a great robot. Do you have the schematics for the circuit posted?

  10. This is awsome.plz …
    This is awsome.plz could you tell me where to get the schematics for this.Because i’d love to have a shot at building one the same.
