Let's Make Robots!

PIC18F452 and DC motor controller.

Hey folks.

 Becausse the PICAXE kit already ships with all the components (er, most of it) glued, I wanted something more challenging. So, I am trying to build my robotic brains from scratch. 

Whilst I have come across quite a few (video) tutorials with circuit diagrams using PIC microcontrollers, I am not able to use a motor controller. One such is here: http://www.seattlerobotics.org/encoder/200001/simplemotor.htm. 

Introduction - Saying Howdy!

Howdy folks,


I just joined the group. I've been reading up the blogs and first robot experiments from others for just under a month now. I must admit, I am hooked! And I am looking around where I live (Perth, Australia) for PICAXE starter kits to give it a shot! 


I did find the *where to buy picaxe* link in the home page mighty useful, though there arent any stores here in Perth that I can walk into and walk out a happy man!
