Pocket-Bot by Norm Reed


     Pocket-Bot is a miniature low cost robot offering a standard
commercially available platform for virtually any miniature robotics 
application. This advanced robot is driven by a long lasting 9 volt 
alkaline battery, also powering an easily programmed on-board BASIC 
STAMP II microcontroller. The Pocket-Bot has built in shaft encoders,
obstacle detect bumpers,independent left and right four wheel drive.
A large prototyping area allows users to easily add custom circuitry
for specialized applications. Pocket-Bot has proven to be ideal for 
use in collective behavior research, AI studies and autonimous 
robotics experimenting.
     Pocket-Bot was developed by Greg Kiskaden and Norm Reed at 
Diversified Enterprises http://www.divent.com/pocketbot.html to help 
advance the current state of the art in miniature robotics.
