Wow, looks like a big driving cutter board ;-) Anyway, what do you want to achieve? 700 US$ for that what you showed off here? what a price...maybe you put a zero (null or 0) to much on it?

Please more pictures and more info about the progress/building.

ok I uploaded more pictures. I hope to be more clear.

actually the total price till this point is around 400$. However, more sensors will be added in the next step to enable SLAM Algorithm to work properly.( for example Microsoft Kinect which is around 100$).


more info and code please
