Another 'Start Here' Robot
This is my first 'thinking' robot. It's based on the Start Here tutorial. A PicAxe 28x1 controlling 2 motors with SRF05 ultrasonic sensor. It carries a 5Ahr lithium battery( I know, it's definitly overkill, but I had it laying around unused). The drivetrain was salvaged out of a toy robot(the 'Joe-Bot') that I picked up for $1.99USD, which lowered my construction costs big time. It had it's first test run yesterday which was a 'qualified' success. Needs a whole lot of software tuning as it spazzes out every so often and goes crazy before returning to some sense of normalcy( damn, it's sounds just like me!!!). Unfortunately, programming is not my strong suit at all. On another note, LMR is the BEST robot site on the web that I have found and this community is both very knowledgable and friendly. I'm honored to be a part of it.Without all the tutorials and tips I would still be spinning my wheels. Next I'll be adding more sensors and fine tuning it's programming. Now it's time to go play(er, work, that is) with my creation.
