RidgeWarrior II

The RidgeWarrior II is a robot that was developed in a five part tutorial series in SERVO Magazine. This robot is based on the IntelliBrain-Bot kit plus a pair of Sharp range sensors and a CMUcam. Though the tutorial uses a specific robot, most of the software is designed to be reusable, so it can be used to build other Java-programmed robots.
