Comments and General Information:|
Squirt uses treads from a Tamiya kit and some really nice Portescap gearmotors that I got surplus many years ago. He was an attempt to build a robopet for my daughters, but they quickly tired of him. He does however make it to school for show and tell every so often though.
Components and Parts:
PIC 16F84 CPU (originally)
ATMEGA163 CPU (upgraded)
IR object detection
1350mAH Li-ion battery
Non-functional (aesthetic only) Ultrasonic transducers as "eyes"
