P-40 Olimex Development Board

PIC 18F452 Microcontroller
           This will be the processor/controller for the project. The 'Brain' if you will. It takes input and controls the output shown on the led.

GP2D120 - IR Sensor
           This is the IR sensor used in this project. It can be purchased for around $10 and don't go bad...ever.

WireWrap & Wirewrap tool
