5x5x5 Rubik's Cube solving robot

Post by OutoftheBOTS_ » Sun Jan 27, 2019 1:50 am

I have been super busy with work and other life commitments but today I found a little time to debug all the mechanics of my 5x5x5 Rubik's Cube solving robot.

It runs Micro-Python on my custom built board with a ESP32 Wrover module.

Super cool! Looking forward to seeing it actually solve the cube when you integrate the algorithm. Nice work OotB!

I have got my robot to the stage it can solve a 5x5x5 Rubik's Cube although it is a little slow. I will next work on optimizing all the movements.

Slowly making it more effient and also smoother so that I can go faster

My first attempt took over 14mins, I now have it down to 7mins. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQmz-K5 ... e=youtu.be

I have optimized the robot a lot more and now have it solving the cube in 4:45mins, as far as I am aware it is the fastest 5x5x5 solving robot anyone has built so far see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sD4bG8h ... e=youtu.be

I have uploaded the code that drives the robot to githuib see https://github.com/OutOfTheBots/5x5x5_cube_robot
