Building “Photon” The Video Photo Robot Part 3

It’s crunch time! Two weeks to go to finish the build on Photon. This week’s work was focused on the torso and the bump sensors that surround it. After an initial failed attempt at stringing the sensor wires, I came up with a solution that worked out to my satisfaction. Photon now has “touch sense” on his left, right, front, and back. If he bumps into an object on any one of the quadrants, he’ll run a routine to stop, back away, turn in the opposite direction then continue onward as he gathers images.
