Boe Bot Navigates Through a Maze

This instructable will help you create bumpers for the boe bot and it will provide you with the code that will navigate the boe bot through the maze.

Step 1: Materials for the Bumpers.

Here is a list of materials you will need to make the bumpers:

-Cardboard

-Tape

-Wires

-Aluminium foil

-Resistors

-Velcro

Step 2: Building the Bumpers Using the Materials.

What you will want to do first is using the cardboard make flaps and glue pieces of cardboard together to make a stack. Now, tape pieces of aluminium on the the flaps made from cardboard. There will be four pieces of aluminium foil that will be taped inside the flaps on each side. Now attach the flaps to the cardboard stack using glue. Next, attach the flat backside of the cardboard stack to the front of the boe bot using Velcro. Finally, attach the positive and negative wires to the aluminium foil on the flaps. Congratulations, you have now finished making the bumpers.

Step 3: The Circuit.

The circuit is very simple and easy to make. Take a look at the picture and create the circuit on your Boe bot.

Step 4: The Code.

Here is the code for the boe bot.
