if you want diff drive youll need to get an h bridge. for a fairly simple one look at the $40 robot tutorial and take a look at the one used in that.

hey Smash did you really build a sonar bot ?

I tried sending you email about it so as not to embarrass  you on the forum , but i need to know another approach that worked on a sonar bot.



Still waiting ,   if you don't reply by tomorrow I'll assume there was no sonar bot and it was all just a lie ....
