PICBots

Filed under: Uncategorized — dtengineering @ 10:05 am

Many years ago a company called Innovatus published a neat little program called PICBots.  PICBots allowed people to program a virtual robot inside their computer.  The virtual robot used a PIC 16c74 chip as its brain, and was able to move, stop, turn left, turn right, scan and shoot.  It was a very simple machine in a very simple environment, performing very simple tasks.  As such, it was a great way to teach beginners PIC Assembly Language.  A link to a demo version of PICBots is here.
