I lost my keys for my luggage in Amesterdam I called a lock smith and he said it would cost 140$ dollars. What better way to solve this problem then to get a Robot to do something I can't.
What it does
it lock picks
How I built it
with an ardunio a bunch of wires a stepper motor a servo motor a Penny and a potentiometer
Challenges I ran into
Too many to mention.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
It works far better then expected
What I learned
You have to use a resistor before the potentiometer otherwise you'll start seeing smoke.
What's next for Robbie The Lock Picking Robot
Test Robby on bikes scattered throughout the U of A.
