I end up finding many versions of a obstacle avoiding robot that uses either an infrared or a sonar range finder sensor mounted on a servo to detect objects in its way while randomly roaming the area around it. The p...

They are mounted on a pcb that was produced for a hands free set for mobile phones. I like to describe here how to prepare the sensor for the usage in robotics projects.If you don't know what a PIR sensor is, just have a look at Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.o...

To do this you must have some way to measure the current speed. This project shows the evolution of the speed sensor. As you can see in the picture, the motor drives a worm gear directl...
