Have a look at the first video of my driving HummBot:



I made another video of HummBot. The video quality is much better now, and the HummBot can change directions!


I attached two servo controlled sharp IR sensors to the HummBot:

Cool, maybe you can turn one of the IR sensors backward, so it can see what's behind it.



Thanks, in fact I want to replace the IR sensors with Ultrasonic sensors, since I need to be able to scan a longer distance than the max 50 cm that the IR sensors are giving me.
I plan to move the IR sensors to the bumpers (front and back) of the HummBot for short distance detection.


I have moved the IR sensors to the front and back bumpers, this works quite nice.
I am now waiting for the ultrasonic sensors. In the mean time I created another video:


Very nice!  I'm building small tracked robots, and just finished one that has ultrasonics front and rear.  We should trade code!  What sensors are you getting?  If you have a Radio Shack near, you can get Pings there.  I have a pair of Pings, and a pair of Devantech SRF05 sensors (those are what I mounted on my bot, they can be used both in shared-pin mode, like the Ping, or with separate input and output pins, which is how I wired them).



I bought two MaxSonar ultrasound sensors: http://www.maxbotix.com/MaxSonar-EZ1__FAQ.html
I will mount these two sensors on the servos of my HummBot.
We should definitely share code. I will publish all my code on my blog.
