Huge thank you to buhatkj who i was able to learn most of this.
I am working on a basic tracked robot. Using an arduino, motor shield, tamiyia bulldozer chassis. other parts and pieces. it will have a laser to drive the cats nuts. i have built most of it but have no idea how to program it YET.
I don't think this will ever be finished, i already have a new set of tracks to see if i can make it have a trailer, or just a longer wheel base. who knows...
Big update: added the code i "wrote" borrowed, hackesd etc.... rebuilt the chassis, servo "head" works. i think i will build a better design. i still dont know why the motor shield has problems with the motors not going in reverse, but that will take time.
VIDEO will be available when i have cleaned the design up a bit.
