Description How To More Details
 
Want to delve a little deeper into a microcontroller’s internal workings? This project is for you.

Tiny Wanderer Complete Kit - Originally built as a training robot for a lecture series conducted by the Dallas Personal Robotics Group, it has since been featured in MAKE, Volume 29 and has proved to be an excellent introduction into robot building.

The robot’s controller is an AVR ATTINY microprocessor. It perceives the world using sensors made from low cost and easy to obtain discrete phototransistors and IR LEDs. Tiny Wanderer’s code employs a programming construct called a state machine to govern its behavior. Our complete kit contains everything you need to build the Tiny Wanderer, including all the laser cut parts.

Got your own laser cutter? Lucky! Check out our Tiny Wanderer Parts Pack and cut your own plastic parts.
