I am going to attempt to build a $50 robot when classes are over. After I am successful with that, my plan is to control the robot via a netbook, some C or C#, and a digital I/O board, as opposed to any already available tools for this. Just thinking about it, it does not seem to be too difficult. Would just start by having 2 outputs for each servo; 1 being to rotate, 0 not to rotate.
Before I get too excited, is there anything I am missing here that would make this project a lot more complicated?
Thanks in advance for your replies.
