VEX Arduinobot with sensor turret

This is my VEX Arduino Development Platform.  In other words… an Arduino controlled VEX robot.  I haven’t decided on a better name but that will come.  The first version of this robot was a piece of particle board with components mounted to it.  Not it has a full VEX frame, all-wheel drive with differential steering.  The first set of sensors installed were photocells.  The robot would chase after a flashlight shining on the floor.

Now, I have mounted a turret for a range finding sensor.  It will be able to avoid obstacles.  Stay tuned… there will be more to come!
