Let us now prepare the chassis, you will need to place the motors on one end of the MDF board, co-axially, using a glue gun. Now the castor wheel goes at the opposite edge right in the middle, use a spacer to adjust the height so that the robot stays level. Use the following image as reference.

Alright! Now that you have them, use the following circuit diagram to connect everything together.

Use this link to get the code and upload it to the Arduino board, use this article if you are doing this for the first time.

Here is the completely assembled one.

Cute, is he not? Now turn it on and let it roam around and explore the world.

And that’s it! Hope you enjoyed this post, see you in the next one!
