This robot is used to test new hardware designs and new software.
This robot features a 386 processor with 1 meg

MC backplane. This robot can be also be controlled by the HC11 MC by simply plugging
the processor board into the backplane and unpluging or powering down the 386 processor
board. This feature allows 386 and HC11 software and hardware to be tested on one
To communicate the with robot, Hyper Terminal
is used. The 386 runs a version of DOS. Borland Turbo 'C' was used to write
the software. Looks for the new Sonar/Encoder driver board to be added soon!
