I am too new to robotics, but I am trying to build a moving trash can that response to the garbage that's thrown around it instead of inside of it.
In order to achieve that, I have decided to go with using a:
1- Dagu Hexapod
2- IR sensor with a remote
3- Motion sensors attached on each side of the garbage can
I am using the code attached (...and I have loaded the IR library...) - but it seems to give me erors like (avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding) - any ideas?
I have a bunch of process photos of the wiring and the actual shape of it posted on my blog (www.maryamhome.tumblr.com
