Hi, I'm new here.
My main project is http://pianocheater.com
but I signed up for FIRST robotics last year (and this one).
And nowwww I'm interested in robotics.
(I'm a software mentor guy with FIRST FRC 1178 Chillout team).
I asked on the email list, but they mentioned to come here
I'm thinkin' on how to make an android phone the brains of a bioloid servo'd robot.
Also, if it had wheels, that'd be great, too.
I think Arbotix has a dual motor controller including encoder connections.
1) What would be some decent motors,encoders for it?
(it's be, ohh, say 12 servos, the phone, a couple light sensors - pretty light.
I'd like to make it do fast line following if that's practical.)
This Arbotix board seems perfect for controlling the servos.
And I'm pretty sure I can make an Android app that'll connect up to another bluetooth capable device.
2) Has anybody tried using a "Bluetooth Bee" in the XBEE spot on the Arbotix board yet?
3) Also, what's a good portable power pack that'll do the Arbotix 11 volts (or whatever it was)?
