Some parts came in from adafruit 2 days ago. I now have all of this working together:

1 LCD over I2C
1 Sonic Distance sensor (digital d6,d7)
2 Continuious Servos (wheels) (I2C)
1 Micro Server (steering) (I2C) Not yet hooked to steer
On Board Ethernet

All integrated into my N2+

I am using these:


I am very happy with everything from ADAFRUIT!!!

Attached is a picture of the prototype - BOXCAR (it's in a box B) )

I have also attached the source code. There is lots of pieces fom all over in there and the code needs lots of work - but it is a proof of concept right now.

There are more pictures and a video at my skydrive.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I'll post updates as it comes along. My son wants to add a camera and a wifi module so we can connect to the car and "see".

Hi tim, That's a great "box car." If you have any video of it in action or an explanatory article, and want to tweet about it, we'll be happy to re-tweet! Looking forward to more fun projects, Chris
