Arduino software help
« on: April 13, 2009, 10:56:32 AM »
I am a kinetic sculptor and I got the roboduino kit (found here: http://www.curiousinventor.com/kits/roboduino) so that I could learn more about robotics. I built a chassis and it uses two self supporting leg units for locomotion. Each unit is powered by its own servo. Basically what I need help with is the programming. Ive seen some scripts for projects like this but I don't know enough to know if they will work for what i need. I just want a basic light follower for my first robot/sculpture.
Basically It will use two photocells to influence the two motors and make the structure move towards the light. That is all I really want for this first project. Using Arduino, could anyone either show me a script that will work, or write one, or show me how to write one that will work for my needs?
Keep in mind, I'm a robot neophyte, so naturally I probably sound like an idiot but I learn fast so please help!

Thanks a lot man! I remember seeing an older post saying that they were going to make a $50 robot version for the roboduino but I couldn't find it so I assumed that they hadn't done it yet.

lol if you searched "$50 robot roboduino" about 2nd or 3rd it came up with the thread with links to it.
