The 4th, Robot Style!

I’m going to try to have a robotic firework show.

I’m thinking about using the 16 sensor ports on a Vex Robotics Controller, hooked up to Estes “Rocket-motor-starter-burner-things”, to light the fireworks.

At this time I do not know how exactly I will do everything, like if the controller has enough voltage to light everything.

I will try to take a video, but it may go off too fast.  

Updates to come…

    I have a question on your programing of the vex kit in creating a movement following robot, Have you ever thought of using two untrasonic range finders to help with drive and terrain mapping in order to move around obstacles. And do you have any experince in programming a vex robot to avoid contact all using the Ultrasonic sensors mounted on a robot using a servo for 45 degree rotoation

    I did a similar robot called “Ultrasonic Bot 3.0″.

    Yes, I still need to upload the video… I think it is on my other computer…

    Let me know if you build the robot you’re talking about, and send pictures and/or videos!

    All the best,
