Written in a combo of C/Assembly, my senior design project was a RC Tank converted to be driven by a micro-controller. Mounted in the "turret" was a IR sensor. Using 3 beacons it could determine it's position, and would travel a pre-programmed path.

The path was programmed by clicking on a grid display on a PC, then was downloaded as coordinate pairs.

Fully battery powered, and the tank moved 3 ft in 1 second from a dead stop.....which is why the sensors for object avoidance were not good enough to work correctly (1.5 ft of view..., so momentum would carry it through the object, although then it would go "around" the object and continue on it's path...).

It was amazing to put it down in the area in any random place, and it would navigate just by swinging it's turret around.... And all that code fit into 640KB....

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
