Hi, I am building my first sumobot, starting with a BoeBot controller.· I have purchased two new gear motors with 3" Wheels for the drive.· I will use a H-Bridge to interface the motors to the Controller.
What I would like to know is what is the minimum sensor configuration that would produce a good competitor.· Here's what I have planned:
4 QRB 1134 IR sensors, 2 front, 2 rear
2 IR Transceivers on front for object detection
1.· Enough line sensors?· I have seen some with 3-4 sensors on each end.
2:· IR Transceivers, I have used the BoeBot kit separate emitters and detectors and see that i can detect and track an object with those, but need something more mechanically stable.....Suggestions?· Is two on the front enough?
p.s. I am posting this on both this forum and the old yahoo forum to see which brings the most/best answers fastest.
