This robot was built by us for our final project in Humber College (toronto, Canada) as Computer Engineering students. This robot was built and designed to go through a maze. It runs through the maze once so it could memorize it's shortest path to reach the end. And it runs through the maze for the second time without having any mistake or wrong turn. It records all the information that it's getting as it moves through the maze. Basically, we had to make the robot think by itself interms of knowing if there's a wall, dead end or if it's already at the end of the maze.

Specifications:

HARDWARE:
microcontroller -> Motorolla's 68HC11
platform -> Plexi-Glass
mobility -> 2 uni polar Stepper motors
driver chips -> ULN2003A
sensors -> 3 Sharp's GP2D12 (analog)
-> 1 paper sensor

SOFTWARE:
Languages:
- Motorola Assembler
- ANSI C Language for 68HC11

Compilers:
- as11 DOS version for Motorola Assembler
- ICC11 V6 for Windows 95/98/NT for C

Programming algorithm:
- "left or else right" rule.
