Premise: Take an old RC car that has outlived its usefulness, add an arduino possibly a motor controller, a sensor or two and build an Atonomous vehicle that can navigate a basic track.
Goals and Summary:
Atonomous Bots - Born out of the first Arduino classes, autonomous bots are a fun easy project to learn Arduino programming and circuit bending. We race in the parking lot when the weather is warm and the beer is cold.
The Premise: Take an old RC car that has outlived its usefulness, add an arduino possibly a motor controller, a sensor or two and build an Atonomous vehicle that can navigate a basic track.
What you need:
In theory these bots are easy to build. It practice the hardware can be quirky at times an programming for exceptions in your environment can be quite challenging. We have had 2 races this year with more to come in the Spring. Get to the Arduino classes today and begin your quest for Bot racing gold.
