Robot car

I want to show you the robot car I have build for the Intel 4004 processor. The frame-work fot the robot is a vero-board print. Mounting 2 motor’s under it, a line-following sensor strip in the front and a powerpack an motordriver on the top of the print. A voltage meter fot the level of the LiPo accu’s complete the frame-work.


On the 4002 RAM I have 4 output pin’s. These are connected to the motordriver. 2 Bit’s for direction for the 2 motor’s and two bit’s to set the motor ON or OFF. On the 4001 ROM I have 4 input pin’s. Tree of them are connected to the line-following sensor en the last one is connected to a press-button on the back of the robot-frame-work. I can use this one for start or stopping the robot in the program for example. After testing the hole setup it is time to program some stuff in 4004-assembly to finish the Robot-game’s.

First I must go to describe very good the goal of the game for myself.

Halfway the Retrochallenge 2016/10 and still a lot of things to do. Let’s GO !!
