("hello! i need some help!" is a really bad title for anyone trying to navigate the site and find information)


is the AXE022 model compatitable with the 3v x2 version microcontroller?

Click on the "Data Sheet" link for manuals but here is the link that I found:



and manuals can be found at?..
ok so  motherboard and two of thoose right? 4 more questions : 1) can we program them on our own? or we have to download ready programs to run them and second how do it connect the motherboard to my pc? (i cant see any port on it thats why am asking, )and third is there a way to connect a camera on motherboard? so it will be bale to save pictures? and 4 is any module or something that can connect the motherboard to the net? and somehow upload pictures?

I suggest first to get your robot to roll and avoid objects. There are many IP camera's that can transmit video to your Wi-Fi router and that can be seen on the internet. Plus there are several network boards that connect the internet to a robot so that you can click on a button on a web-page and the device converts it to customizable serial commands that will work with any microcontroller.

Start looking at the manuals as they pretty much answer all of your questions. As for a camera, depends on what you mean by hooking it up. I'd just get started with getting a robot to roll forward and detect object before thinking about cameras and other things.

You will be programming the robots, ie wrtiting your own code. It'll help to look at code that other people have posted to save you time and also to learn. 

check the manual for how to connect it to a pc. You'll be using either usb or serial(oldschool) .


Could you please send a link for the X2 parts you are saying about?

Well at first we were thinking for two servo motors,Remote controlling(can u also tell us how we can make the rc system{links>}) and we will install ir sensor for avoiding obstacles.
they are in the links you posted!! just go to the picaxe chip section and you'll find them there. As for remote controlling, search here on LMR the string "easy radio", might help.
