I’ve been asked this question many times. I thought now would be an appropriate time to discuss this since my electronics should be arriving on Tuesday. to put it simply, my robot has no real purpose.
The only reason I undertook this task was so that I could learn about building a robot and I wanted to build something cool. So really the robot serves no specific purpose in terms of accomplishing a task. It’s not going to go get me a beer, clean my house or anything else of that nature.
What it will do in a functional manner is be able to drive around and not bump into things. Once I’ve achieved that, I’ll have reached my goal with this particular project. If I do anything more than that, it’ll be icing on the cake.
So what will I do once I’ve achieved my goal? I’m not quite sure yet, but I do have a few ideas. I’ll let you know when I get there.
