Welcome to the fascinating world of Adventure Bot!
This robot searches for moving objects to play with using its compound eye to track movement. This unique sensor does not only track movement but can also be used to judge distance and communicate with other robots. Four smaller corner sensors allow the robot to avoid collisions.
Adventure Bot uses an ATmega168 processor, is AVR/Arduino compatible and is fully programmable using free software from the internet.
For those first learning to program a robot, the Arduino software available on the internet is a great introduction to the "C" language. Experienced "C" language programmers can use free software from the internet such as "WinAVR" to program this robot. An ISP socket is included allowing an external programmer to be used.
This robot comes fully assembled with sample software pre-installed, just add batteries and it's ready to go!
• Infra-red sensors to detect obstacles
• Transparent blue case lets you see inside
• Factory modified continuous rotation servos with rubber tires
• In-built USB interface for easy programming
• Batteries can be recharged without removing the cover using optional 9V DC power supply
CD ROM w/user manual and software

- Blade Count:
It is a reaaly funny robot to start tinkering with Arduino. Very soon you will be changing the original code to begin using your own. It is not difficult to search for more advanced code in the internet with which you can enjoy this great product.
If it works - it is a lot of fun.
My arived with servo gears broken,
Pan servo failed first day,
Main board failed second day...
I wish there was a schematic diagram included in the doc CD.
CD contains Arduino software and single sample code only.
