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.

R/C Vexter

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.
