This past weekend I gave the MACH 2001 Model II some finishing touches. The top and front covers were sprayed with gold metallic paint and that produced a lovely finish.
The sensor input programming on the PIC Micro Controller is the next step. This takes the form of interrupt processing , I must just make the time , I'm very busy training for long distance running and that takes up a lot of my free time.
I had a look at my web page stats today , and it is quite apparent that software does not seem as interesting as the robot itself? Programming the PIC is quite a rewarding challenge and it can be applied to everyday life in controlling things around the house too.
I will post some pictures in the near future of the MACH 2001 Model II clad in it's shining armour!
