- Mr. General is a general purpose robot platform designed to allow students to easily build their first robot. The bread board provides a solder free method of connecting almost any processor to Mr. General's sensors and servos.
- Using 2 servos modified for continuous rotation, speed and direction of both wheels can be controlled using only 2 digital outputs. The 4 infrared sensors on the base can be used as analog or digital inputs for either edge detection or obstacle avoidance.
- Four indicator LEDs are wired in parallel with the IR LEDs and can be individually controlled. The pan / tilt universal sensor bracket is driven by two miniature servos allowing additional sensors / devices to be aimed by the processor using only 2 digital outputs. The infrared compound eye can be mounted on the pan/tilt assembly allowing the robot to track moving objects or detect obstacles up to 200mm away. Voltage rails can be isolated and connected to different voltages allowing the use of 3.3V and 5V devices together
- With the IR LEDS and sensors, two or more Mr. General can talk to eack other, which will allow us to organize a robot football match.
