Great bot and nice vid! I'm planning a similar "yard bot" in the future so it's nice to see someone else paving the way.
Looks like you're a hardware guy which I'm pretty comfortable with but the programming... not so much...
I'm curious about the online class you're taking. Any input? I'm slogging through some books right now.
Thanks, I also checked out your tank tread bot & video, looks like it's turning out very good
Very cool on the yard bot, will you build it from the ground up or modify a wheelchair?
I was thinking of adding a small hitch to the rear of mine to maybe eventually haul some stuff or add a small wheeled cart.
I'm pretty terrible on the programming side. I learned quite a bit here, but still a lot of things I would like to understand better.
I sent an email to a professor/coordinator for programming C++ here at a local tech school. They have 2 courses in C++. I told him what I was doing and some of the things I wanted to learn/improve.
He sent me an email back saying those C++ classes were more business oriented..? He told me to look more into the engineering side of C++
So I think I may start and look at some online courses and other websites that may offer tutorials.
I like your idea on the cardboard tubing (maybe even a thin walled PVC tubing) for blocking out the 'peripheral' motion.
Thanks again for the comment and suggestion
