A LEGO robot whose ultimate goal is to chase my two cats! Initially it is a simple testbed for motor control and sensors, all driven by a BASIC STAMP microcontroller. I am porting software to the PIC microcontroller, and hope to provide a library of robot routines in C for the PIC.

Motors are driven using Motor Mind B modules by Solutions Cubed. A serial LCD module from Scott Edwards is also used for status display.

This is an ongoing project, with many major enhancements planned. The ultimate goal is to use some of my Genetic Programming research to allow the robot to learn/create new behaviours based on environmental stimuli.
