Tim's Cybot conversion to Arduino NANO

Hi all.I'm doing a new project.Dug out my Cybot. The one built on a fortnightly issue of Real Robots back in 2001.I decided to convert it to use the Arduino NANO. With Bluetooth and Infrared Control.I haven't finished it yet, so I haven't done an instruction here, I thought I would wait until I have finished the project before doing that.However, as it's quite a lengthy project, I have started a blog on my google+. Which I am updating as I progress with the project.Here is the link: Tim's Cybot conversion to Arduino NANO Blog.Before I started I had a search on the net to see if anyone else had done this, but all I found was basic stuff controlling the drive motors.Currently I have done a rough sketch (some fine tuning still needs to be done) for it that lets you:Control it via bluetooth,Set it in line follow mode,Set it in light follow mode,Set it in avoidance modeandControl it with an Infrared Remote.I'm sure there is still a lot of these Cybots out there, so i thought their may be some interest.

What to do with old robot? / Cybot

I found an old robot that was part of one of those 'build it yourself' magazine series. I was gonna eBay it but found there was actually quite alot of cool stuff in there so I've compiled a list and I'm gonna make an instructable using some of the parts, But I need ideas / help.Here are (the best) parts.2x sets of ultrasonic emitters / receivers2x LDRs large2x smaller photoresistors (used for line following)2x set of inrfa red emitter& reciever leds2x bright white leds + various others2x 9v motors & gear housingsLCD display 5cm squreeepromspeed controllers selector switches etcand a load of pre programmed processors that can't be reused.some more technical details here
