The Sunbird

The Sunbird is a 2 degree of freedom, dual Bicore driven robot. The Bicore is a 2 Nv loop. It uses the 74AC240, a driving, schmitt inverter chip. It uses a pair of photo diodes per bicore to bias the amount of turn per direction. The robot uses a pair of Maxon motors to allow it to look left to right, and to look up and down. I salvaged them from MECI IV M and used it for this robot and Floor Monkey. This robot is a light seeking "head" which is a light seeking device that aims itself in the direction of the brightest light source.
