"First Robot" Problems!

Hi everyone, 

I made my first robot according to the instructions from HERE : http://communityofrobots.com/tutorial/kawal/how-make-your-first-robot-using-arduino

After constructing the body and circuit of the robot, I put in the servo program, and that works fine so thats good

Bench Test - GP2Y0A21YK

I little while back I was blogging about my mini-sumo project, the Pink Pearl, named after a brand of pink eraser I like. I had decided on the pink color because I believe, contrary to popular opinion, color does not matter at the mini-sumo scale. Here are the results of my first bench test using the Sharp GP2Y0A21YK (10-80 cm) sensor.

**Disclaimer - This test was not performed under highly controlled laboratory conditions, but by a robot geek in a garage.**

What wrong with my code???

#include <Servo.h>

Servo myservoL;
Servo myservoR;
int myservo = 2;
int myAngle;
int pulseWidth;

void setup()
{
  pinMode(myservo, OUTPUT);
  myservoL.attach(9);
  myservoR.attach(10);
}

void servoPulse(int myservo, int myAngle)
{
  pulseWidth = (myAngle *10) + 600;
  digitalWrite(myservo, HIGH);
  delayMicroseconds(pulseWidth);
  digitalWrite(myservo, LOW);
}

No cables... solder some?

Hello,

 I made my first newbie error and sent mail rather than a post ;) However -

I have all the parts for the simple robot, the one in the 'how to make your first robot' section' But i didnt read carefully and forgot to check parts.. so my sharp sensor doesnt have cables!

wondering if anyone knows how to solder a set of wires and make your own cable - im generally quite handy with my soldering iron ;)

 Kind regards,
