[PIWARS] GitHub repository set up, OLED scares, new mounts, line follower update

I've finally created a GitHub repository for my code that runs on Lobsang (it was pretty hard to get the local repository program working, but I managed in the end!). It is somewhat patchily commented, so I can't guarantee that it's all completely understandable, but it's there if anyone wants to take a look. The file which may be of interest for people to use themselves is Oled.py- it's customized to my robot, but can still be used without the hardware I have. It's for Pi to SH1106 OLED communication.

      Last days I saw a review of the Official Arduino Robot and I remembered about a project I made some time ago with this robot. The project was dismantled … Read more
