Vexter has taken a turn. Actually it has turned right around. The front and back ends have been switched but that is not all that is new. I have figured out the IR Remote protocol and Vexter can now be controlled like an R/C car.
Sensors have been added on servos. There is a compound eye mounted to a pan and tilt turret and an ultrasonic range finder and PIR motion detector have been mounted to a pan servo on the front. The “bunny ears” are brackets for mounting a phone for remote video feeds. Here is a video of Vexter in action.
