Mini Robot Rover
This is my smallest robot 20x20cm and 9cm hight.
You can control it via WIFI like the other robots but this also has 8 HC-SR04 distance sensors.
The distance will show on the screen (larger red semicircles means the object is closer).

I thought also to use a 4 Channel Infrared Obstacle Avoidance Sensor to detect if a edge is close to the car but that did not work so well. Depending on how reflective the surface was it gave false signals...
