This is my BASIC STAMP II project attempt.

The R2TAUPO uses two modified drive
servos for 360 degree operation.
(This link will show you how to modify a standard model airplane servo
to make a robot drive system) http://www.seattlerobotics.org/guide/servohack.html
The brains are a BASIC STAMP II chip with a motherboard
that i designed.Source code found here. R2TAUPO.TXT
It contains a 7805 power supply,
header pins for 8 servos and 8 general control pins, lights,
speakers, sensors, etc. Click here for schematic. R2TAUPO.gif
The slanted drive wheel design allows the robot to roll and steer with
only two wheels. (model airplane wheels)
The head rotates 180 degrees (standard servo), and contains leds and Infrared motion
detection. (Got the head from a Kentucky Fried Chicken promo glass)
This allows R2TAUPO to avoid objects, and make decisions
to locate a clear path to follow. R2TAUPO has a speaker and amp
for sound output.
The power source is a 7.2v rechargable hobby battery.
Just added speech board and software routine. (code
Schematic and foil pattern will be here soon............ SPEECHBD.gif
