Thanks for the reply. I used the AVR 28 Pin 16MHz 8K 6A/D - ATMega8 from sparkfun.com and yes the pot are securely in place and the servos are modified the correct way im 100% sure.
Ok so I did the following,
I switched the servos and it ended up rotating counterclockwise so im assuming switching servo ports would only change the orientation of the rotating. Through some persistent testing I manage to find that in a lit room the robot spins in a circle but when put in a dark room it managed to move straight so I think that the robot actually is afraid of light and is spinning because it cant find a dark spot to go to (a photophobe instead of a photovore). To further confirm this I put my finger close to the sensor and the robot actually followed it. So to make it a photovore I switched the sensor ports around and find that the robot stopped rotating and is moving around but it doesn't seem to be confined to a light box like the video that was on the website. I further put the robot in a fairly dark room and found that it is moving straight and when i point a flash light directly at the sensors, the robot actually followed the flashlight. When i removed the flashlight, the robot continue to move in a straight line
Im guessing the problem now is how to reproduce to a similar extent what the photovore robot on the website did. In other words how to trap the robot in a box of light and make it turn away from dark areas. I have yet to change any code around
