Let's Make Robots!

FoamBoat

Navigates around via ultrasound on water

This is my first robot, I started with a boat made out of isolation foam, witch floats really well!

The 'Brain' is a Picaxe 28x1 project board and I got the motor + propeller from a broken RC plane. The rudder is simply a cut piece of metal sheet and it has 8 AA batteries.

Is it suppose to make such small circles?

not really, we need to adapt the programme still

Ah ok, I was just wondering if the water had anything to do with getting back "bad" readings from the sensor.
