I used the BS2 which uses PBASIC, so BASIC
I actually thought of that, posed a question, but got a no since it is a single core processor.

Lol this topic is funny! Love how this forum can talk about anything!

Love the robot! For my robot "Project syth" we our using some type of hard plastic forgot the name of it but it was easy to cut, we made a double layer so one holds the arduino bred board and the 2 modified servos, and yours might be glichy if you modified the actuater wrong (I thing I said it right) I cut the tip off and when I placed it back on it did the samething, opened it open again and saw that the tip was sticking out a little but so my friend grabbed a tourch that was laying aroung heated up a razor and cut it off..

Works like a charm after that!

Oh wait where you using servos? Lol well this is good advice anyways lol!

Good job!

Oh and I'm 16!

the problem isn't the servos it is the code because whenever the wheels arn't moving the rangefinder is scanning. also it seems to use the same kind of scanning code as you robot.

I am also soon going to be adding a unique feature to my robot. the microcontroller will be able to activate a servo, turning 3 DPDT switches. this will then switch the controlles of the servos from the MCU to me.

i cant see a point? but why not instead of having a servo turn a switch which could easily fail have a transistor operate a small relay?

Or you could do it all in software instead of a mechanical switching over  ;)

I see whet you are saying. can MCUs read PWM pulses like, say, from a RC reciever
