Sensors

  • IR rangefinders
  • Sonic rangefinders (need a way to power-cycle these [1])
  • Edge sensors (used to detect the white lines at the edge of the ring)
  • Header for accelerometer module
  • USB camera (eventually; low priority)
  • Contact sensors (buttons, leaf switches?)

Other I/O

  • Microcontroller to do motor control PWM
    • Socket for ATMega 328
    • Use four L298 motor drivers (one for each motor)
  • Input button to start start match
  • Blinky LEDs

Misc

  • Power conversion
