Asimi is a bot based on Arduino, which I created to experiment with robotics and different ways to connect to external interfaces from Arduino.

The name Asimi

I choose the name Asimi, in honour of Isaac Asimov, who coined the term ‘robotics’. Also ‘A’ is the starting letter of the name of a very special person in my life 😉


Each module is a separate Arduino Sketch which does a particular functionality. Right now the following modules are available.

  • BasicBot
  • WiiBottonsBot
  • WiiAcclerometerBot
  • AndroidControlledBot

Source Code

The entire source code of the project is available at my github account.

Demo Video

Thanks to Arun for shooting this video


The source code and schematics are released under bear-ware licence. So enjoy 🙂

I would, however, consider it a great courtesy if you could email me and tell me about your project and how this code was used, just for my own continued personal gratification.

Coming soon

More modules, better documentation, demo videos, photos, building instructions etc..
