This paper presents the design and implementation of an object seeking robot. The robot controller is first implemented using an FPGA for fast prototyping. All parts of the design have been simulated and implemented using Xilinx tools. The system controller is then implemented using PIC16F84A single chip microcontroller to achieve low power consumption, and quick movement, which is a basic requirement in environments where quick response is needed in continuously changing dynamic situations.

The speed and direction of the movements are based on the received information from the sensors. The robot was tested and found to meet the specification for reliable operation.
