|I built this robot in about a week or less, using only spare and already used parts. I fitted everything inside an old powersupply aluminium frame, and made cuts for the wheels.
Because it's only controlled by a single "StampI" microcontroller, I used a serial servo controller to spare some io:s.
Until now it's equipped with a serial controlled LCD for the enviroment interaction, and a infrared detector mounted on a servo, which by turning the sensor enables the robot to have a much wider range of view.
The power supply are 6 batterycells; 1,2V/cell and 1800!!mAh/Cell. For future enhancements I am considering adding a BS2 computer and a light/temperature sensor.
