Leo's LiteCar

It's really not easy for me to start,but I am here!
I'm so happy to find this great place,with so many funny friend and robot!
This is my first project from last years which called “LiteCar” , I wish to program my LC running without Delay(); Feeling with a Light Sensor and Fighting with a "Laser Gun".

Project plan:
1,moving action(WASD) by Computer Operator
2,recording its absolute position
3,feedback and maybe some PID? or Balance Filter?
4,Automode:moving by some prepared positions
5,add some other sensor or what else...
