What should I call this robot?  Right now it is running a Nano, but it may end up with a Mega, or possibly a Nano and an MSP430 - so the name needs to be microcontroller and brand agnostic.

It could stand for "Roving & Ranging Robot" or "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle". :)

Thanks for the suggestions.  I have decided to name this bot Box-E

Too many sensors?  Didn't know that was possible!  $3 on ebay, so why not?  Even with 4 ultrasonics, I'm still at less than half the cost of one PING sensor.

The top box is a Stellaris Launchpad box, the bottom box is an MSP430 Launchpad box.  The shame is that there isn't a single TI part in the robot, at least as of now.  The microcontroller is ATMEL and the motor driver is Toshiba.  Sorry TI 

The box is not a great look, but I find it to be a great platform while I figure out what I want to do.  Kinda like breadboarding the chassis.  It's my second bot, so I'm still learning what design consideration to keep in mind.

I don't think TI would mind that much, at this point they are still getting a bit free advertising. ;)
