Internal Electronics - Part 2

B9 Robot Internal Electronics - Part 2

I am using a car stereo for the audio inside my B9. This CD player has a few neat options. It can play MP3's so I can put 10 hours worth of audio on a single CD. Also, it can be operated by an IR remote. Just above the radio you can see the fuse panel. All my low voltage is distributed through these fuses.

Here's the whole internal stack. Not all the wiring is in place in this shot. The second layer down contains the two Oopic microcontroller and the two motor controller boards.

Bulb-O-Rama! - I am using several types of bulbs in the B9. I figured that I had better make a chart and keep some spares on hand
