Autobot by Jonathan

I AM A 14 YEAR OLD STUDENT AT WITBANK TECH IN SOUTH AFRICA
THIS IS MY FIST ATTEMPT AT BUILDING AN AUTONOMOUS ROBOT AND
I THINK IT HAS TURNED OUT PRETTY WELL.

SENSORS
IR VISION (DESIGNED AND BUILT BY ME)
BUMP DETECTION
IR REMOTE CONTROL(DESIGNED AND BUILT BY ME)

LOCOMOTION
I USED 2 HACKED SERVOS FOR THEIR EFFICIENCEY

BRAIN
I USED A PIC 16F84 RUNNING AT 4 MHZ
AND I PROGRAMMED IT WITH MPLAB AND DOWNLOADED IT WITH PIC16PRO
PROGRAMMER

I FARVOURED IT OVER THE BASIC STAMP BECAUSE OF IT`S CLOCKING SPEED
AND PRICE BUT DON`T GET ME WRONG THE BASIC STAMP IS HYPER
POWERFUL
PROBABLY MORE THAN THE PIC

THE ONLY PROBLEM WAS WITH   THE IR DETECTION UNIT IT WAS OVER OR
UNDER SENSITIVE BUT THROUGH TRIAL AND ERROR I GOT IT RIGHT

I AM CURRENTLY BUILDING ANOTHER ROBOT WITH ALOT MORE SENSORS AND
GADGETS USING THE PIC 16F876
