Murata shows it's as easy as riding a bike
Murata has shown the versatility of its electronic components by building a tiny robot that can ride a bicycle perfectly at up to 76cm per second -forward or backwards.Know
An ultrasonic sensor enables obstacles to be avoided, while another makes corrections for uneven ground. The robot’s eyes are an onboard camera that captures images and transmits them to a PC.
Murata Boy also incorporates more common Murata components, such as monolithic ceramic capacitors for controlled electric supply and ceramic resonators to create a reference signal. Thermistors detect temperature, and potentiometers compensate for circuit variance.
