my robot has this modules and devices

1- motor driver TB6612FNG (use 4 pins to control 2 motors)
2- ultrasonic range finder

If you use Project Designer from my site http://webbot.org.uk then you can add all the devices you want and it will show you how to connect it all up - making sure that you are using the correct pins and power. The File | Print menu option will give you a PDF showing the connections.

Remember that my speech synthesizer is very CPU hungry as its generating audio waveforms in real time!!! If that becomes a problem then just build a mini board to speak whats it is sent over the uart.

i don't know how to build a board for text to speech if you have example for that and i think this need eprom flasher or writer and i think it's big stuff for me and i don't know how to write code to communicate between the uart as i'm new with c++ i thought it's simple but i was wrong i'm walking step by step now i'm studying  c++ but i have a little electronics background that could help so if you did that before ( to make a separate board for the text to speech ) so send me the tutorial

and i think webbotlib need update some hardware like vrbot (EasyVR module) so how can i do this and how to upload my update to your site if possible so the others can use it

regards
