picBot - "the Beast"
This was my fist prototype that ended up being the AdMoVeo robot.
The first exploration for the current design started with an earlier platform, based on a within the faculty of Industial Design developed microcontroller-board based on a Microchip PIC8F4550, used in the assignment Microcontrollers.
This explorative platform called PicBot was to hard to program (for designers) and would need a lot of support form the technical staff. The platform contained besides the microcontroller two geared motors with wheels mounted on a chassis, on top of that a PCB with a motor driver, some switches as collision sensors and a battery pack mounted on the backside.
