KU-Bot is a programmable toy car which uses the Basic Stamp II microcontroller. At its present form, it can be programmed to move in any programmed pattern, like around circles squares. Adding photodiodes and IR LEDs it can follow lines as well. The line following algorithm is currently being developed.
An H-Bridge motor controlling circuit has been employed using 2N3055 and MJ2955 power transistors. The brain of the KU-Bot is the Basic Stamp II.
