Let's Make Robots!

My first SHR robot....

Navigate around via sharp IR

This is my first robot...a simple SHR. I connected a 7 segments LED mounted on a small breadboard. the LED display "G" when its going forward and "S" when it stops ans starts looking for another way. i actually didn't have a certain shape.....so i kinda improvised..:)

btw....the vids maybe not that clear...i took it with my ipad2

I like the 7-segment display. Neat idea. You can probably have some fun with that.

The videos are nice and clear, but it is weird seeing a wide-screen format flipped on its end!

Ya I know it is weird, am still tryin to figure out why :p
When your robot looks around, it turns left and right before making a decision. How do you do that? Really good robot by the way, I can't see any wires hanging out or anything.
Thanks, ignoblegnome is right.....it's an SHR code...just added the 7 segment code to it. But the weird thing the dangerlevel number in the code gets bigger when my hand gets closer to the Sharp IR, so I changed that.
That's just a basic code but changed a bit to make it how you like?
Yes, exactly

That's pretty much standard 'start here' robot code. Take a look at the top menu of the site where it says, 'Start Here'.

Oh, ok. Thanks. I'll take another look.

It looks like it REALLY wants to drive off that table.

Nice addition with the 7 segment, gives it a nice personal touch!
