Autonomous Hexbug XL Spider

Posted January 13, 2015 by Chris

"An autonomous robot requires both: actuators and sensors. Actuators are responsible for moving and sensors help to measure a physical quantities. Without actuators a robot cannot perform any practical task. If your robot doesn’t have sensors, then it’s blind. In our case, actuators are two motors for moving of the spider. Proximity sensors help to perceive distance to obstacles."
