Comments and General Information:|
The long antennae cause the bot to turn away from an obstacle (contact on the left antenna will make the bot turn right, for example). The sorter antennae are directional reverse sensors (contact with the left sensor makes the bot back up and turn the right, away from contact).
Components and Parts:
Two small gearmotors, rechargeable batteries recycled from telephones, bits of plastic, recycled switches, etc. Main electronics are master-slave bicore and an original bidirectional inverting multiplexor with charger and sensor controls, all on BEP boards from Solarbotics
