$50 Robot with Sharp IR Upgrade
« on: May 19, 2007, 02:41:16 PM »
For those who have finished their $50 Robot and want to upgrade their project, I have just released the next part:

Enjoy!

corrections: when I say 'laser rangefinder' I meant to say 'IR rangefinder'
when I say 'analog output' I meant to say 'analog input'
. . . was too lazy to redo that film just for those mistakes . . .

Yes, I see that stampy can look all the way from left to right.

Mine only looks from straight ahead to right.

Anyone know whats going on?

In the code I specify how far it rotates. Its just two constants that you can change. Its all commented in the code.
