This library has been written specifically for use with the Hobby Components Maze Runner robotic vehicle (HCROBO0052). It provides the ability to reprogram the Maze runner using the Arduino IDE which means with just the addition of a programming cable you can reprogram the Maze runner to follow your own commands. This opens the Maze Runner up to not just being a maze solving robot, but a general purpose robotic vehicle.

Detailed descriptions of the available functions within this library are provided in the accompanying manual that is provided with the Maze Runner kit. The libarary also contains example sketches including the maze solving sketch that comes pre-programmed in to the Maze Runner.

You will need to download (please log in to download the library) and unzip this library to the Arduino development environments library area.

On Windows:

Hi Andrew

Note it is possible to wire the motors in the wrong polarity (as I did), the instructions are not clear, then (obviously) the robot won't work correctly as the motors run reversed.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for pointing it out. I've now added an errata section to Maze Runner post with a diagram showing the correct orientation. You can find it here: http://www.hobbycomponents.com/mazerunner
