    The Radar Car - first version

    The first version of my radar car. This one used the concept of the adder/substractor to vary its speed instead of a mechanical gearbox. The car didn't work very well for a few reasons :

    • There was more friction on one side of the driving differential and the car kept on turning.
    • There was not enough difference between high speed and low speed to notice (but I think I'll try again later the adder/substractor, the concept is interesting).
    • I used rather low-power, visible light leds so the radar sensitivity was too low.
    • The bumper design was flimsy.

    Hence the new version...
