While my end-goal remains the same – to build an awesome, fully autonomous rover – the tutorials all say you should start small by building something extremely simple. So that’s what we did. Using parts from around the house, a couple of wheel assemblies and the Arduino, we built a very simple-minded light-chaser.
Believe it or not, this isn’t part-way through construction. This is the fully completed robot. It isn’t pretty but it works. Sorta.
