rover schematic

here is the first version of the schematic, ill begin building it when the parts come in from Jameco

new project – a rover

so in light of lots of spare time, (i graduated from georgia tech this past saturday)

in this spare time i decided i would build a pic controlled robot. since this is going to be a long project i decided to created a page for all of the info about it.

here are a list of the parts i am planning on using:

PIC16F690 Microcontroller
Tracked Chassis
Twin Motor Gearbox
Quad H-Half Bridge

if things go well i will add some assorted sensors and some method of driving it around wirelessly. i’ll put all the details of the project and my progress on the project page.
