Cookie Monster Robot

Description: I created this robot a few years ago as an autonomous project running standalone microcontroller code. Today I decided to remove my old circuit board and replace it with the EZ-B.

The EZ-B made the new version a very fast development. I copied the Robot Remote Control project, modified it and added the Radar screen. I also used a timer to make the head move back and forth during Forward motion for AutoCollision.

The skeleton of this robot was custom built. The outside skin is from a Cookie Monster Stuffed toy. I removed the stuffing and wrapped the fur around the custom shell. I secured the fur to the shell with a hot glue gun.
