Snail the Light Seeker

This creature roams through the surrounding environment and seeks for light sources. When an object is too close it reverses motion and turns around, and then goes on seeking light.

I used an old toy motor and platform, then added two LDR light sensors, a SHARP infrared sensor on the front and Arduino Diecimila for the brain.

  1. Bom dia,
    parabéns pelos projectos e por apareceres no ladyada. Não se vêm muitos portugueses nem na makezine, nem nos sites mais técnicos.
    Bom trabalho.
    João
