akeeh - My robot project. So far it only has two separate collision detectors but I'm working on IR proximity sensors to avoid collision

My robot project. So far it only has two separate collision detectors but I'm working on IR proximity sensors to avoid collisions. That unconnected 6-wire cord in the ATmega board is the programming cable that I forgot to take away. :)
* Body: plywood (I'll make a new body as soon as I find a better material, but for now the plywood is good enough for this kind of prototyping), diameter of the plywood disc is 12cm and the overall height of the robot is about 10cm
* Brain: Atmel ATmega8 AVR microcontroller (32 pin TQFP one with a self made pcb) with a 4MHz crystal
* Programming language: C
* Motor controller: SN754410 (1 Amp Quadruple H-Bridge), you can see the corner of the control board on the front, below the top part
* Motors: two small (2cm long, 2cm diameter) gear motors I got from a friend, no idea where they have been used before but the robot runs nicely with the Lego wheels attached straight to the motors (about 12cm per second so no new land speed records yet)
* Power: 4xAA cells for the motors and 9V battery for other electronics
