One more First bot
After far to much time spent gathering parts, I put together my bot. I skipped using a servo for the moment so it turns on its tracks to measure distance left and right. After the time spent putting it together, and coding it, it felt amazing to see it navigating the kitchen floor. I'll have a video up soon.
Built on a picaxe 28x1 micro controller and programmed in BASIC ( i think?!)
Tamiya dual gear box
Tamiya Track and Wheel set
A sharp infrared sensor as the range finder.
Originally i planned on getting at least the gearbox into the project box. Needless to say that didn't work. Currently nothing is inside of the project box but I'd like to take some time and change that fact in the near future.
*** UPDATE #2***
OK finally got some pictures up, a video will soon follow as soon as google tells me its done baking. I have not made any changes since i first put this together. I do have a speaker I'd like to get attached, and tweak the code a bit, so that it doesn't wiggle in the corner as much as it does now.
