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
