CYCLOPS by Juan Salom Caņellas

Cyclops is a small mobile robot for investigation in algorithms
of autonomous navigation. It was my final project at systems
engineering highschool. Their design and construction takes
approximately two years because the difficult adquisition of
materials. It's structure was built with Meccano parts, and use
differential steering for navigation. Their specifications are :

Dimensions: length/width 16,5 cm; heigth 13,5 cm.
Weight: 1.62 Kg.
Batteries: 1 Lead acid 6V 1,2Ah  (motor driving)
                2 Ni-Cd 9V 110mAh  (ultrasound system)
                1 pack of 5 Ni-Cd 1,2V 1,3Ah  (logic circuitry)
Motors: 2 Meccano DC motors 6V 1A
Sensors: Ultrasonic range sensor (mounted over a servo)
               2 Rotary encoders (optical)
               Battery charge
               2 Bumpers
Control: 6.270 microcontroller board of M.I.T.
Others:  LCD display 16x2
             Digitals I/O
             Analogics I/O
Communications: RS-232

My robot cost us about $250.
