I wanted to make a simple bot to take to Maker Fair when I stumbled on the goldfish box at the supermarket. The box and the battery holders are the only parts bought for this project the rest are from the junk box.
This photo shows the prossessor board. It is the first version of my G.E.A.R. board. (Generic Experimental Adriano Robot)
This shows the sensors and servos.
The sensors are the Basic raidoshack emitter detector pair circuit that's bin listed in books from the dawn of time with the addition of a transistor to control the LED.
Still to do:
I want to make a line following sensor and write code to detect if its over a line when its wandering and then follow the line.
I am afraid Robotgoldfish has had a stroke. When I try load a new sketch i get the dreaded
avrdude: verification error, first mismatch at byte 0x0000
0x0c != 0x00
avrdude: verification error;
error. He will have to live out his life as the wall bumper he is. But at least he will not be scraped for parts.
