With simple programming knowledge, an Arduino controller and above all a lot of perseverance and desire to learn, a young man from the community behind Arduino shows us how to build a autonomous suitcase capable of chasing us wherever we go. The best of all is that you have posted on the internet all the necessary pieces to carry out the project and the steps that must be taken to build this contraption.
As the young man who has managed to devise this project alleges, known within the forum as TannerTechYou can really do it for many different reasons, for convenience, since you will not have to pull your suitcase any more to carry it from one place to another or simply to leave all passersby with their mouths open after seeing how a suitcase chases you wherever you go.
An Arduino board is used so that you can create your own autonomous suitcase.
The idea of the project is very simple and it is based on the premise of placing two motors on the wheels of a suitcase, or in the case that you can see in the video located just above the lines of this same entry, of a backpack with a handle. These are remotely controlled with a remote that connects to the Arduino board via bluetooth.
At the moment, the young creator and designer of the project says that he is working on continuing to evolve it to ensure that the suitcase not only chases us anywhere we want to go or moves by means of a remote control, but is also capable of react to any kind of unexpected situation in the environment, something that requires a little more programming and above all to include more sensors.
