Simple FPGA Controlled Robot

Posted November 12, 2012 by Chris

“This page outlines the complete design for Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) controlled robot that exhibits light following, sound sensing, and object detecting abilities. The robot uses an Actel 1020B FPGA to control all of its logic behaviour while external analog circuitry provides the sensory inputs to the FPGA. The purpose of this design is to demonstrate how an FPGA can be effectively used to control a robot.”
