Title: Meet daisy - an autonomous obstacle avoding robot
Post by: SPD42 on July 20, 2014, 12:34:17 AM
Daisy is an old “Discovery Kids” projection alarm clock turned into an autonomous obstacle avoiding bot with an Arduino Mini "brain".  The roboy uses 4 obstacle sensors (3 infrared and one ultrasonic) to detect obstacles. Usually my bots look like a cat played with a ball of wires, so I tried to give this one some personality...

you just grabbed a toy and gave it some sensors didnt you?   thats funny, you can make any old toy with motors come 'alive' if you give it some sensors and a program.
