Connecting Bluetooth to starter bot (PicAxe)

I'm new to the bot thing, and just built the starter bot.

Can someone please tell me if this item could be (relatively) easy to connect and use with board I have?

Please don't buy the last one, as if this can work, I need one! XD

Detecting laser beams?

Using an Arduino, I guess I would modulate (PWM) the laser module and have the photocell light sensor pick up the frequency. Would this work?

Avoiding objects

Hello,

 

This is my first day here on LMR and I think it's a great site for learning new stuff for my robot.

Currently I'm working on my very first (own) robot.

What I have now is a cybot based platform (2 motors and a front wheel).

De motors are driven by a L298N driver.

That driver is connected to an Arduino board.

My next challenge is avoiding objects and I'm not quite sure what kind of sensors I would like to use.

First we have normal switches mounted on the front sides. (I rather not use this)
