This is my first robot. I built this robot for competition in our faculty. Robot shoud be able to follow line. So, I decided to make radio controlled - computer guided Bot. In computer i have card PC-dio-96, which have 100 I/O ports. Next, I took apart an old RC car and installed receiver in robot, transmiter was placed next to my PC. Program is written in Visual Basic, to ensure to be as simple as possible. Unfortunetlly, bot had no sensors, because i cant transmit sensor readings back to PC. (i don't know where can I get 2 way transmiter). I used lego to reduce cost, so this bot costed me nothing :) (i already had IO card) =) Time to build: 3 days Problems: - no two way communication (help would be apriciated) - huge problmes with transmiter ( if wires were just a little bit longer, it dindn't work anymore) :( - i had to take my PC to competition :) Future: Off road robot with full autonomy, camera and spakers. Tnx for reading, feel free to email me:
