Marvin

 
Avoid objects and able to be controlled by radio remote, avoids running into walls in RC mode by the SRF05

Marvin is a lot faster than Jasper. My wife named him.

Right now he can just avoid objects with his SRF05 and is able to be controlled with a radio remote. The transmitter and reciever were only 10 bucks at walmart. lol. Just bought a toy car and gutted it for the parts. :D

Right now the radio receiver is not controlling the motor controller directly. It is connected to the analog pins on the Picaxe and controlled programaticly.

The video shows him in both modes. Below are some additional pictures.

 Thanks to all who have been helping me!
