  • Some kind of controller (such as a computer, microcontroller or PLC)
  • Servos and actuators (as needed for the tasks of the automated device)
  • Assorted gears, cables, relays, sensors
  • Some kind of power supply; typically a battery
  • Other electronic devices as deemed necessary, such as IC chips, diodes, UARTS or other communication chips, RF controllers
  • And anything else you can dream up that might be useful in the robot you're trying to build.

Good luck; robotics can be a fun and enjoyable hobby.The most fun is when you dig into the controller and figure out how to make your robot accomplish the tasks that you want it to perform. Programming your robot can be both challenging and rewarding.
