A very messy post exam desk

What it does

Sweeps garbage off of a surface

How we built it

Built purely from arduinos as well as lego.

Challenges we ran into

Many micro adjustments for the servo would cause it to begin acting erratically. Furthermore, connecting it to the 5V arduino source itself would cause problems, so we had to introduce external power sources, requiring us to control it with transistors -- also many problems in specifics.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Finally getting it to work!

What we learned

Incorporating external power, using transistors, pulse width modulation to control servo motors

What's next for SweepBot

Add a roller track to allow for higher range of movement.
