CDBot by Angus Thomson

CDBot (I know, I couldn't think of a better name) is an 
autonomous mobile robot built around a few old CD ROMS (AOL etc!).
It's sensors include 2 LDRs for light following, 3 bump 
switches, 2 IR proximity detectors, 3 IR reflective sensors 
for line following, 1 pyroelectric sensor for people detection 
and 1 Sharp IR range finder.

The brains behind the robot (loosely speaking, anyway) is a 
Motorola HC11 microcontroller and the robot is driven by 2 modified
servo motors.
