Carbot is the third robot to come out of the Eabon project and a huge improvement over FT.
Carbot gets a new face due to some sensor enhancement. Not much for looks but better at moving around objects.

When I sat down to build this robot I focused on making this more of a stepping stone. I used inexpensive gear motors to slow it down. I also confined all the circuits to one board for neatness. All the planning and constructing was with the intent of knowledge and experience more than just producing a great robot.
Carbot is slow and determined. Weights were added for towing and pushing power. It follows light really well and can maneuver to some extent around furniture. This one is not one of my favorites.
