Demo Platform for the Low Voltage Motor Driver

This is the robot I quickly built to demo the Low Voltage Motor Driver. If is based off the Mr. Basic platform and MSP-430 Launchpad. It has a 6.4V lithium battery as the main power source which feeds into the voltage regulators on the Launchpad.

For direction control a top mounted servo spins a Sharp gp2y0d810z0f IR sensor. The sensor has a single data line which is pulled low when a object comes within 10cm of the sensor.

Most of the code for the hardware is already written. Just need to finish the controls and it will be ready for a video.

msPROBOT Ready for Maker Faire

I finished the first physical version of the msPROBOT just in time for Maker Faire. I have the majority of the demo code written and I will post it when I test the code. All the basic library functions are written. Just need to make a main program that strings it all together.

There is more information and PCB files you can download at the msPROBOT project page.
