Nice!!  :D Congrats

I like the way you put it together. It's really easy to follow and understand step by step. Especially the circuit.

Good Luck on the contest  ;)

You know how you have 1-7, 7 being Troubleshooting. Well, I think you should have an eighth section for Videos. I was looking for vids and it would be convenient if they were all in one place. Just a suggestion  :D

One of the reasons that I voted for you and Pratheek is that both of you finished in time (mostly  ;D) and it was all complete. You guys did not procrastinate and that's a thumbs up for you. I looked at the others, and they were mostly incomplete with a "Work in Progress" sign.

this was my first robot using a microcontroller , I had to do a ton of research

before this I used a laptop for processing ( on chives) and played around with R/C cars


People tell me I am  very stubborn, which is why I get things done   :D

If you research it and put in enough time, you can build anything !
