Robot #1
Robot Home Page
Here is a picture of my first robot. I'm afraid he has turned into spare parts. I finally decided that I needed some more working room. I took me a full winter season just to get it going in a straight line - it and I had a definite love-hate relationship. But that's where I learned enough to build Fred, robot #2. Robot #1 has a Zorin 68HC11 processor board with 32K memory programmed in Sbasic, I/R detection, sonar, wheel encoders, separate motor and control batteries. I learned about power supplies and batteries the hard way.
