My latest rover is called miRover2 and has evolved from miRover
and has recycled many parts from miRover.
As circular rovers seem very popular I thought I would base miRover2 on this type of design.
miRover2 still uses a PIC16F877A as it's main controller.
Circuits that are reused are(1/1/2014):
- 5v Regulalor.
- The motors.
- Motor controller.
- The current/voltage monitor panel.
- CMPS03 Compass.
- SRF02 ultrasound.
- IR sensors.
- Edge detectors.
- Motor brain.
- Bumper sensors.
- Current monitor. (for the motors)
- Control panels.
- Decks and wheels.
- RN_42 bluetooth device.
- PIR sensor.
