C program code

YellowBot Source Code

I have not put togethger documentation for my Bots code. The code is evolving too quickly for detailed up front documentation. I would like tos tate that a primary goal of doing this Bot was to help me learn Object Oreinted Programming, as well as get me used to programming again. it's been 20 years since I've written something more than a simple shell. python or Perl script.

Thus I will warn you this code is chocked full of redundancies and inefficiencies. Bear with me, an old dog is learning new tricks, it's just taking time :) 

I can Program C!

If you have read about My first navigation bot, you may recall I wasn't quite ready to program my robot, as I couldn't quite understand the ADC, so my dad did it for me. Well now, I getting the grasp of microcontrollers and I have even made a filter for my sensor to filter out noise and improve the range of my infrared reflective sensor. My dad had a whack at that earlier, but my filter picked up objects over 1 and a half times as far, and with little or no noise picked up. YAHOO!
