A Game of Kat (Anologue) and Mouse (Digital)
This entry is about a challenge I am doing for a school club, Destination Imagination. One robot controlled by a PICAXE 08Mx with two H-bridges (Mouse) will be programmed to go to a set location to achieve 10 pts. The Mouse will be outfitted with an Infrared LED crown. The second robot will be a LM393N based infrared light seeker (Kat). The Kat will track down the "Mouse" for and additional 10 pts. The target area is exactly 4.24 meters away from the closest starting location. The target area is exactly 0.5 meters by 0.5 meters. In additon eight more non-robotic/electronic vehicles will also be entering this area to score the most amount of points. The budget for our entire project must be under $175. Hence why we will only be having two robots because we need to create non-electric propulsion systems for the other vehicles and have props for a skit to go along with the vehicles. Below are the circuit. Oh one more thing, as a rule of Destination Imagination only my teammembers can give me ideas, if you see room for improvement DO NOT SHARE. However, if you see an error in the circuit that would prevent it from working properly by all means post. Compliments are always welcome as well ;D.
