HOW TO – Build a little autonomous robot with a PIC 18F4520


Sylvain writes – “…One year ago, I built a very simple little robot with a Comfile PICBASIC 3B microcontroler and a Cybot chassis. This new project is based on a very much more powerfull Microchip PIC 18F4620 (or PIC18F4520) Microcontroler programmed in C language with the same chassis and new sensors..

This is still work in progress, but the MCU board, the sensors board and the motor board are still ready and you will find pictures and schematics on this site. “Link.
