Since I'm waiting for a new controller and my old bot somehow did what I wanted I'm starting something new (well, kind off). In the end most of the things I tried had some things I didn't like. Especially not in a smaller place.
So I started with a round base with the weels in the middle. It can turn on the spot like this. Round and few more rounds later I got to this.
It's basically going to have the same setup as earlier, the MRS1, 3 pings for object detection and more. Maybe.
A name was born, Roundabout Bob.
I'm thinking of a smoke generator to go in the lowerback. Triggered by the IR sensor. If something gets really close, poof. Well see if it eventually deserves a painjob.
Still thinking on how I can get the neck to turn fashionably........
