-===== Overview ===== 
-I recently came across parts of a robot system that turned out to be parts of a "Mr. General"​ type robot platform. "//​Mr.General is a general purpose robotic platform that uses a bread board to work with almost any processor. ​ An IR compound eye mounted on a pan/tilt assembly can be used to track moving objects or as a simple range finder. ​ IR sensors on the corners can detect obstacles or edges.// " 
-===== Hardware description ===== 
-The hardware I have consists of a mainboard, ​ 2 servo motors, and a tilt/swivel bracket with an infrared '​compound eye'​. ​ The mainboard has a prototyping area, corner mounted infrared transmitter/​receiver sensors, power regulators, motor driver chips, status LEDs and LED driver chip and many extension plug/​sockets. 
-The tilt/swivel bracket, servos and compound eye form the '​head'​ of the robot, and with suitable software allow the robot to track objects close to it (< 200mm).
