So this is what i have been doing for my summer vacation,
this bot is controlled with a joystick connected to the raspberry pi running py-game library.
Also it takes input from six IR sensors on the edge of the bot to prevent it from bumping into the walls. The motors are controlled by a L298n controller and a 12v battery.
The pi is powered with a 10400mAh power bank. I decided this particular power distributuion layout due to some unfortunate incidents involving voltage regulators.
