I've been working on Leo's motorcontroller and reading a lot lately on bots. It got me to thinking about using multiple uControllers to do multitasking. I've slimmed down my original motor controller concept to just a PicAxe 14M, a L293D and some resistors. What makes this motor controller different is that it does more than just control the speed and direction of two motors for an indefinite amount of time. It's possible during setup to make it that each command only last for five seconds or increments of five seconds.
