You will need encoders:

The microcontroller I use in my $50 robot will work fine for you:

You will also need two motor drivers:

this should help too:

and to design your power regulation:

Instead of using encoders and DC motors, you have the other option of using stepper motors and a stepper motor driver.

(its a fairly badly written tutorial, just never got around to fixing it up)


Lastly, I highly recommend designing the whole thing in CAD first. Use Google Sketchup (its free).
