'Q-TYP' alias 'Quick Type' is the result of my idea: 'Quick and cheap building' a simple robot as a first project for beginners. With remotecontrolled movement in different ways. For learning some robotic basics and programming. Material: handwired controllerboard (68hc11f1) board with 32K-RAM motordriver IC, a 4584 IC for inputconditioning, 4,8V-Accupack, 1 IR-receiver module, 2 motors, assembled on a plexi platform with hot glue, rubber band and some screws. Program: PWM controlled motorspeed, IR detection and command recognition, realized with the 'Tiny BASIC compiler' from Carl Lunt. I prepared Q-TYP for 'Interactive C' from the MIT. I implemented also a FORTH version for interaction. I built it in aprox. 10 hours. Q-TYP is able to be solarpowerered (not continuously - accu loading while a standby low power mode) and i want to make him autonomous move outdoor on sunny days. Determining the movement direction by the sunposition and brightness for the best 'feedplace'.... Email: dieter.schenk@a-city.de
