Platform and Motor Controller
The robot's platform is a pre-assembled tracked platform from DFRobot.
The DFRobot Romeo motor controller is attached to the tracked platform
with electrical tape. The motor controller and platform run entirely
on six AA batteries.
A Nexus One is used to control the robot. At this point in development, only remote control is supported, and only Android 2.1 devices can run the code. Later, the code will be backported to Android 2.0.
