Around the perimeter of the top board are six three pin connectors. They accept sensor modules. The photo shows two digital light sensors and an infra-red proximity sensor. I also have built analog light sensors, and I'm working on a sound sensor now. I just put the finishing touches on the hardware a couple days ago. Now it's time to write some cool software for him.

Long Time no Post
I can't believe it's been so long since I posted here. Over the past months I've spent a lot of time putzing in my wood shop. I've got a project that's almost ready to put up here. Also after many months of work my wife and I finally got the basement put back together, so I have a real office/electronics workspace now. Using this new space I've recently put the finishing touches on a new version of the B.bro robot. This version has the same mechanics, but a cheaper power supply and motor driver, and is implemented with all custom circuit boards instead of protoboard.
