You can also get ideas for Arduino applications by searching for articles in these databases. If there are too many retrieved with the search term "arduino," you can narrow down your results by also searching the term "robot*" since you are seeking robotic applications. Unlike Google, the databases will search all forms of a word (such as singular and plural forms) when you use the asterisk * after the root form of the word. Example search: arduino and robot*
