|TecBug - Hextor prototype by David Buckley||01 February 2001|
The initial robot controller was a Parallax BS2 in which all the basic leg movements were coded.
That was developed so the BS2 sent commands to four servo co-processors.
A BS2-Sx was added for high level control, with a Polaroid Ultrasonic distance sensor to detect obstacles and a module to receive remote commands from an Infra-Red TV controller.
Eventually all that was combined onto one circuit board as Hextor.
