Bender - the line following robot
This robot is a line follower for ISTROBOT competition (www.robotika.sk/contest).
It's brain is ATmega16 AVR connectable to the PC via Bluetooth - this allows to have the board programmed wirelessly via AVR109-based bootloade or to run some nice rbot monitoring and controling program on the PC or a mobile phone.
Line sensor is made of 5 QRD1114 reflectance sensors, the robot has also one GP2D120 IR ranger with analog output mounted on a microservo.
The gear is modified kit from our local robot store (in the Czech republic). Motors are driven by L293D.

The attached video shows one of the first test with line senro - now it uses PID regulation which looks much better.
