What does it do?

Crawls around like a bug

Work in progress. HexedBot can walk forward and backward. Still working on the driver program. Hopefully I'll get the video processing working so that he can follow an object or a bright light, for example a laser pointer. I'll use the Sharp sensor for collision avoidance. I've followed the plans pretty much literally out of the Robot Builder's Bonanza book, and added a second deck to mount the Arduino Uno board, the Pololu servo controller and batteries. The construction material is 6mm Sintra PVC plastic from Solarbotics. Still a lot of work to do, but wanted to share my progress :)
