Fritz + Willi
Having read Jens Altenburgs book "Mobile Roboter", I
was keen to built these robots.
Both can be programmed with a PC.
To get a new program work, it is written in an editor, compiled and downloaded to the agent.
Two light sensors at the front enabled them to find a pocket lamp, a bumper detected obstacles.
Later I added an ultrasonic kit to Willi.
On Fritz I mounted an IR-sender - he is now playing the "rabbit" for Philip.
