I hope to upgrade to DC motors so with a flick of a switch the robot goes from autonomous to R/C
because of the speed I think the juttering would go away.

the vids are ok, but kinda short. also you don't really explain much in them?
@the construction:
the construction of your robot is actually pretty good looking even though it was made of pvc piping lol.
i dont know what it is about ghetto robots, i just like the way they look. weird huh?
i also liked the way you reinforced the wheels, what are those stick looking things?

the sticks are square wooden dowels I had laying around.
the short videos I can fix easy. (though the main point of them was just to show the robot working, not how it works)
I chose PVC pipe because it is really cheap

 :-\ if you are ever making more just set up the cam on a tripod next to your work area so we can see what you are doing, and maybe talk along with it telling us what you are doing and how you are doing it. this will help a builder see how its done and get a better understanding of what he or she is doing. although props for making the vids at all ;D

Nice robot, although the youtube video's didn't work...? I had to go on youtube and type in "my wall-avoiding robot". But oh well, still really good.

My Voice sound just like yours on tape like a girl !!!! And I'm 14 and my voice has broke... :D

I HATE It Hate I  Hate It !!

Man, this Topic has made me laugh !!

I feel like I'm not alone, there are other people in this world who sound like chicks when they talk  on camera ;D

@ superchiku

You still single?

Guessing from  "nice robot...jst curious but  ::)who is the girl in the 1st video"   that...

private reid, with the youtube videos, you have to use "LQ" or "LQ+" down the bottom of the vid to make it work.

they stand for low quality and low quality plus. it just means that the vid hasn't been uploaded in high quality... yeah, i don't know why that isn't a preset with vids on this forum yet. but yeah, its not going to kill me to click once ;D

To get rid of the jerkiness, you should increase the amount of rotations the wheels go through before it checks it's sonar again.

And what language did you program it in, you might be able to use 2 strings to process the ultrasound and keep the wheels going too.
