|Ultrasonic sensors will allow you to do fundamentally the same thing that the bump sensors do...so you can slow down and smoothly stop your robot just before it reaches the end wall, instead of running into it at full speed and then figuring out "ohh! there is a wall there!" - dlavery [more]|

MORT's congrats to your inventeam Tyler. Its a great simple design. And your welding is awesome btw.
I only wish we had better documented our own InvenTeam creation years ago. Converted a truck to an electric vehicle. Some dude from VA Tech bought it and we used the funds for build season that year XD.
Once again, awesome job.

Ah, InvenTeams. Good stuff, man.
Last year Norview went with a single-input device aimed at those with cerebral palsy and similar physical setbacks. That trip got me hooked on MIT and I still talk about the event at the science museum.
Good luck and have fun up there!
