Let's Make Robots!


Wall Racer or RC

This is the ratb0t, he has a nervous behavior and remainds me a rat.. :]

I´m using an Arduino Diecimila to control the steering servo and the traction motor.

The XBee module recieves data from another Arduino, this one has a wii nunchuck controller attached.

Next Step: make it autonomous


Update: 31 Jan 09

I´ve added two ultra sound sensors and now I´m trying to make this bot a wall racer. Due to its drifting capabilities its being very hard to code this, but I will find a way.
I´ve replaced the 4 AA batteries by a small 7.2V battery and now he has more power wich also means more nerves..   :D

So,  after a couple of hours of trying and trying, I quit, and decided to relax and enjoy some drifts..  :]



Update: 5 . Feb . 2009

slow for now… next time will be faster
