I am trying to build my first robot, and I am trying to build it out of a radio, 2 motors from a ps2 controller, and a battery pack from a rc car.

I want to make it autonomous.
I was wondering if anybody knew how I could reprogram the board from the digital alarm clock using the computer. And how to actually hook it up to a computer...

Im not really sure what I want it to do, but it needs to move... i was kinda thinking line following but im not sure how they work or if I have the stuff to make that...


I really need help...:confused:

You could use the board from a digital alarm clock, if you want to display the time on your robot. Like Blue said, you will need a whole lot more than what you currently describe.

YouTube - Mousey Robot

should give you some ideas on how to use your ungeared motors,
try a lightseeking robot like the one in this video, much easier since you won't require precise movements thus no gear reduction and no proper wheels

but like everyone else said, you need much more, for starters a radio has no light sensors
