With a series of technically perfect robots like those playing football, or helping their master cleaning up his house and then alot of others, the robot world has continued to expand. This time it is the turn of the Robochess , the robot can play chess with human.
Although robots have been competing in chess tournaments since the ‘70s, they’re usually large, industrial-looking arms that are separate from the chess board itself. Compared to these robots, Robochess the chess-playing robot is more suited to the scale of your living room. Robochess is fully integrated into its chess board, and shows what can be possible on a small scale with a small budget and a large amount of dedication.
The chessboard used for attaching the robot has a magnetic sensor on it. The chess pieces are also made with the a magnet. That way, it gets easier for the robot to track the chess pieces and hold them in its hands. The hooks placed in its hands are removable as well. The Robochess has an LCD display in it that shows each of the moves it has made so far. The whole thing comprises of 2 boards – one is the control board and the other power board. The parts like the microcontroller, LCD display and the Connectors are linked to the control board and the power section, while the relays and the motor controls, is connected to the power board.
About 6500 Lines of program written in C Language and Compiled Under AVR-GCC (WinAVR Pack) Compiler.
This robot has small and simple hardware. main core of deciding and controlling is a 8 bit atmega128 micro-controller.
this robot have 2 board, control board and power board. control board consist of micro-controller, LCD, Connectors. and power board consist of power section, motor controls and relays .
64 sensors placed at bottom of chess board and connected together by matrices. this sensors connected to control board with a 16 lines flat cable. also 64 rectifier diodes used for protecting matrix from inverse voltages.
one 8 pin connector and some 2 pin connectors used for connecting other sensors to control board. one 12 mhz crystal used as oscillator for micro-controller.
