After being busy for a couple weeks I finally managed to put my Rover together; I ended up getting a Ping))) sensor but as dropdeadkick pointed out the front axle is in the way of mounting a sensor; with a bit of finagling the brackets I managed to get it on there though. TEC, unfortunately it looks like I was too late to learn any helpful information from your blog! I hope others did, and that you update soon. I'll keep posting updates (and probably pictures) as I go along.

Oric_dan, I will definitely check out those books! The first one especially looks useful.

Thanks for the information about the light sensor--I'll probably buy an ultrasonic sensor or something similar and see what I can do with that, instead. I think I will purchase the Rover and update with any further issues/discoveries I find.

Hi, I'm planning to get a DFRobotShop Rover and I'm not sure what I should do with it. Originally I was planning to somehow mount an ultrasonic sensor and program the Rover to move around autonomously; someone else suggested teaching it to follow a flashlight around, since the kit comes with a light sensor. Any suggestions/thoughts would be great.

Also, I don't have much experience with Arduino; the last robotics project I worked on I used the MindStormsNXT language and hardware, and the switch is turning out to be pretty difficult to make. If anyone has a good tutorial on how to write code for a mobile robot--rather than just turning an LED on and off, which is most of what I'm finding--in Arduino, I would be eternally grateful. Thanks!
