Jasper is my version of the start here robot. He has a Picaxe 28x1 v A.5 brain. (Finally got my updated chip today!)

He just avoids objects right now.

Right now he just has 1 servo, 2 geared G3 motors with tracks, and the Picaxe 28x1 vA.5 firmware.

I have added the code which I modified from the start here robot and the how to on the SRF005 node.

He first started to twitch his servo because of the pulsout command for the SRF005 sensor. I added a pause to his pulses and now the twitching is minimal. This is because even though it is on separate pins there is still a pin on the Picaxe 28x1 assembly that is giving the servo a pulse also causing it to move. Adding a pause of 10 milliseconds before and after the pulse helps this as you will see in the video. :)

If you make a start here robot with the SRF005 or any other pulsout sensors (Sonic sensors) feel free to use the code attached to this bot. :)
