I'm starting up a new hobby for myself. I'd like to get into some simple robotics.
I would like to build a computer operated toy car.
Initially it will be a platform with a few electric motors for propulsion and steering. It also will contain some sort of IC board with embedded code to drive it all.
Now I need to get some ideas as to where do I start looking for the different IC / chip components and how to get it all to work.
I have many years of C/C++. I have done some VERY simple embedded programming on ATMs. I know what an EPROM is (roughly). I'm not a total idiot :)
Any directions on where to look would be gretely appreciated.
