ArbotiX Commander Control - These demos and projects control the Robot using the ArbotiX Commander, the handheld Arduino based remote control.

Direct Control - These demos and projects control the Robot directly from sensors connected directly to the Robot's control board.

Pose Control - These demos and projects allow you to create and playback a sequence of poses.

Serial Control - These demos and projects control the robot using a serial packet protocol.

Standalone - These demos and projects are deisgned to let your robot function without a computer or additional microcontroller.

Wireless Control - These demos and projects allow you to control the robot wirelessly - usually by replacing the Serial Connection with XBee modules.

    Are you ready to add a little Arduino to your Halloween decorations? Using the RobotGeek Floor Mat Experimenter's Kit and a few extra parts and props you can automate scaring all your trick or treaters. This project will show you how to read from a Floor Mat Switch or PIR motion sensor and then activate a relay. You can activate a RobotGeek Relay to turn on DC devices like vibrating Halloween props and sirens, or you can use a PowerSwitch Tail to turn on AC loads like strobe lights, leaf blowers and boom boxes.

    Our examples are all Halloween themed, but these examples can be applied to a variety of projects like security systems, pranks, entry logging, and more.

    This Kit will require you to solder wires to the floor mat switch. You may also need to solder extensions depending on what kind of external device you are trying to control.

    Direct Control

    This page will show you how to wire up a Powerswitch Tail to a Floor Mat Switch. This will allow you to control 120v AC devices (up to 15A) froma Floor Mat Switch.

    This kit will allow direct control of an AC device. You will not be able to set delays, timings, or any other behavior - when the matt is pressed, the load will be activated. For examples of using the floor mat switch or powertail switch with a microcontroller, see out Halloween How-To guide.
