Axe - the sumobot

Hello hello!

As you can guess, I am making a new robot, and it is a small sumo!
Features:
- Picaxe 14M
- 2 modified micro servos
- 1 LDR to see the line of the ring
- Sharp IR sensor
- Bottle cap wheels until I make up a better solution (Yes, lol :D)

And when I will receive parts, or get something done, I am going to update this until it is time to post a robot!
Tomorrow (I think) I'm going to post schematics and maybe printed layout ready to make it pcb!

This is my project [DON'T LOOK, JUST BORING]


STARTED 5.7.2012

Okay, so here's my project, what i am designing.
It is a robot arm!
Some stats:

- 4 servos, not very big
- PICAXE 14M as brain
- SM-S3317S 2.0kg at 4.8V
- 4 Rechargeable 1.2V batteries
- Polymorph and lightweight woodsticks as materials 
- Maybe somekind of sensor and IR receiver
- Potentiometer to control

Pictures coming soon!
