Robo-Rats Handy Board Page
The Handy Board is the "brains" of your Robo-Rat. It is a hand-held, battery-powered microcontroller board that controls all the sensors and motors of your robot. The Motorola 6811 microcontroller can be programmed using an assembler or compiler, or with Interactive C--an interpreted version of the C language. For this course we will be using Interactive C because it provides an convenient environment to explore/control your robot.
Before referring to the resource pages below, you are advised to read through the Handy Board Technical Reference. If you do not have a printed copy, you can refer to the online version.
