BugBrain is my first robotics project that started with a kit I purchased off of the Internet. I added the programming and a Infrared object detection sensor. I brought the robot to the Atlanta Hobby Robot Club (AHRC) Robot Rally in May 2004 and won first prize in the Open competition!
BugBrain started as a kit purchased from Yost Engineering The kit comes with a processor, development kit, printed circuit board, and most of the electronic and mechanical parts you see on the robot. I added the brown daughter board that sits underneath the front of BugBrain and the eye stalks that give BugBrain vision capabilities. The vision circuit was designed by AHRC member Dale Heatherington. I re-programmed the BX-24 processor from NetMedia to use the vision circuit and arranged the functionality of the robot into different tasks.
