 Autopilot MEMs Robot

 

When you don’t want to drive your robot wouldn’t it be nice to just point in a direction and have it go there? Well the issue is that every little bump and wheel drag will slowly adjust the direction so where it ends up after 50 feet will most likely not be where you intended. Iron Jungle from Whiskey Tango Hotel  used a LM303DLHC which is a Micro Electro Mechanical (MEMs) compass sensor to give his Autopilot MEMs Robot a sense of direction.
