A bumper car is usually driven by a crazed carnival-goer -- but we're going to build a self-driving Bumper Bot! This bot will use the Circuit Playground Express for brains and collision detection with its onboard accelerometer. The Crickit will provide all the muscle needed to drive two TT DC gearbox motors, as well as a micro servo direction indicator flag.
A small speaker and NeoPixels will also give us feedback while to bumper bot is out there having fun!!
- Small and medium corrugated cardboard boxes
