Overview

For my 11th grade science fair in 2006 project I built an autonomous robot based around a Sony Vaio laptop and Lego RCX.

I was able to salvage the transparencies I used for my presentation to the PJAS (Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science) which I scanned and uploaded below.

I built a simple wooden frame with 2 caster wheels and two wheels powered by Lego motors. an IR sensor was attached to the front for obstacle detection along with a Garmin V GPS for location.

The laptop would process the data from the GPS and send/receive information to the RCX via serial. This project would have been a lot easier today with the advent of Arduino
