Hi everybody. I have alot of questions and don't know how to find answers for them, so I would be very gratefull if you could tell me a precise location where to look for my answers.
So the questions are:
1. How to connect arduino severino to intellibrain board? I need to connect 3 of arduinos to one intellibrain only to send commands with coordinates so the arduinos can calculate the angles for servos to put the legs there, so i would only need to send 1 boolean to choose a leg and 3 integers to specify the coordinates.
2. How to connect 6 servos to arduino severino? I made this one http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardSerialSingleSided3 and used Atmega8 chip, but I don't understand what pins can i I use to send servo signal with arduino command.
3. What kind of math functions can I use on arduino?
4. What is the cheapest way to detect heat on distance? Thermopile array is too expensive for me, and I don't need a precise scan or anything, just a way to distinguish a wall from a human and a fireplace, on a fixed distance of around 20cm, so i can make my robot look for obstacles and if its wall or fire walk away from it, or if it has human heat look at it attack it/beg for batteries/interact in any other way
Thank you for your time reading this and thank you in advance for any answers you can provide.
