To be be able to test some ideas related to subsumption architecture, I wanted to design my own differential drive autonomous robot. In this project I will bring together the various parts that are made for this idea.
Apart from the electronics and software, the mechanics are an essential part of any moving device. My mechanics skills are limited to using a lasercutter and mechanical assembly. I'm not (yet) in a position to do 3D design and 3D-print parts. I hope to get some help from a family member for that (some time in the future, not a pressing need right now).
A first idea of where this is going can be shown here:
Update JAN'17: first "final" revisions of boards are ready, and I'm already doubting the wisdom of splitting the stacking headers in power and signal blocks. Maybe better to get a single stackable header (cheaper and available) instead of two 2x4pin headers. Need to let this sink in.
