Hello everybody. Introducing my first robot
Since I just made my robot not crash into walls, I figured I'd make an appearance on this site, since I'd been using it for a long time anyways.
It's sort-of based on the beginner robot here, and a little bit on the letsmakerobots.com beginner robot.
It's got a chassis made out of part polymorph granules, part rubber band and part "borrowed" chopsticks.
It's got a 9v battery to run the uC and 5 1.2v batteries to run the motors.
It's based on an Atmega168. An old schematic (not including the servo and IR sensor) can be found here.
I guess I will do some more improvements on this before moving on to something else - for example, the QRT-1A IR sensor I'm using doesn't seem to have quite the range I'm looking for.
Any comments on the design are welcomed
