|This robot is build by a group of ultra enthusiastic students of Mechatronics at the Fontys University of Professional education Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The project evolved from a course in microcontrollers and other digital control systems. In our project, the most famous 68HC11 microcontroller of Motorola was studied. The members of the team are:
Bart van Bragt
Under guidance of Johan van Engelen and Piet van Amerongen.
Description of the robot:
The function of the robot is pretty simple. It always drives forward until it hits an object with the whiskers. It then turns back in a curve and goes forward again.
