Build a robot for physics class

  1. May 26, 2007 #1
    Ok, so I am spose to build a robot for physics class as the last project.
    Me and my friends thought we should build a RC car with an LED heart on the top. THe problem is we are in need of direction. Does anybody know what is needed and what needs to be done to build a small RC car? If so plz reply.

    So far I have:

    If you need specific help with the H-bridge (or LED circuits) post in the electrical engineering forums.

    Good luck!
