Let's Make Robots!




So i have a IR detector and it is hooked up to an arduino i have programed it with the help of this blog http://www.arcfn.com/2009/08/multi-protocol-infrared-remote-library.html i am doing the example that is named " How to recieve" 

Problem: whenever i click a button on my remote the number 0 apeers on the serial monitor. What does that mean?

36 KHz modulated infrared light detector

I have started working on a new robot that is mainly based on LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT. This robot is aimed at participating in DTU robocup 2008 but time will tell if it will be finished in time. Anyway in robocup the robot must at least be good at following a black line and preferably it should be able to accomplish other of the tasks at hand as well, and this is just not feasible using the standard LEGO sensors and the very limited number of these it can use at one time.
