Well, since a few people have asked I figure this would be a good enough first post. Here's a couple of videos (and the only surviving media) of the robot I built for my thesis. The first video was just a little test of the obstacle avoidance (how did I end up with so many xerox boxes?).

Second video was an earlier incarnation where I was hoping to use Python to provide the braining but decided for a simpler option.

(read on if you I haven't yet bored you)

The whole point was to build an autonomous 'bot that could be given an end point and would find the shortest path to the point while avoiding and correcting for any obstacles it encountered. Nothing too fancy or difficult, but I ended up learning a lot.

Apologies on the lack of verbosity...I'm going to try for something more....interesting. Thanks for reading this far!
