Solar Bicore Walker

This is my first attempt at a solar walker.

The circuit uses a master/slave suspended bicore on a 74HC240 with a HC244 used for the motor drivers and reverser.

Storage capacity is 2 1F gold caps.

The SE is a modified version of the Alf circuit from Ben Hitchcock. It uses a 1381 voltage trigger to set off a latch which runs until the switch-off voltage is reached.

The bot is still in beta test mode.. I'm currently evaluating it's performance and adjusting for an optimum walking gate.
