Simple whisker bot
Well I have finally started my first bot for this site.
This is basically a re-build of a robot I made around a year ago, using the Picaxe School experimentor board, using an 08M chip. I have now purpose built on veroboard a new circuit allowing simpler plug-in of components. Drive is by two modified servos and detectors are two long armed micro switches.
Finished work late last night but did not function correctly. Thinking about it I came to the conclusion I have left out a couple of pull-up resistors off and the microswitches are only being seen as on.
Don't have internet at home so photos will come later. I also don't have video capability :(
Once this is working correctly the next stage is to modify it to use sharp IR distance module. THe real challenge is in using the 08M to the max!
