Title: MAX-01: Multipurpose Autonomous X-plorer
Author(s): Andrei Kovacs   Cristian Molder            

Abstract: This paper describes the way of building and programming a MCU-based autonomous robot using peripheral components in order to ensure the robot locomotion and decisions. The structure is modular in order to ease adding or removing any component without difficult conditions of reassembly and reprogramming.

Keywords: robots, embedded systems, automation.
