-====ASSEMBLE THE ROBOT==== 
- 
-Build your robot and place the components on your breadboard as shown in the drawings. 
- 
-==STEP 1== 
-You can start working on the assembling of the robot holding the bottom of the bigger plexi base (refer to the “TOP” label engraved on the plexi to be sure you hold it in the right way). Attach the two small plexi bars with 2x Ø 3mm x 12 mm screws and respective nuts. Fix the motors with 6x Ø 2mm x 6 mm screws as shown in the picture. 
-

- 
-==STEP 2== 
-Turn the assembly upside up (check the “top” label) and attach the castor wheel with 2x Ø 2mm x 8 mm screws. Fix the Yellow board with the 4 plastic pegs provided in the yellow board box.

- 
-==STEP 3== 
-Fix the L298N motor controller module to the smaller plexi base using the 4x Ø 2mm x 10 mm screws (place the plastic spacers between it and the plexi base and fix it using the nuts as shown in the picture). To connect the breadboard, remove the protective film and attach the breadboard in the appropriate space.

- 
-==STEP 4== 
-Place the smaller plexi on the bigger one and fix the motors between them with the remaining 6x Ø 2mm x 6 mm screws. Fix the wheels to the appropriate gears of the motors, attaching them with the 2x Ø 2.2mm x 6.5 mm self-tapping screws.

-====PREPARE THE CIRCUIT==== 
- 
-You will now place the ultrasonic range finder and all the electronics components on your breadboard. Following the drawing you will connect all the components together in order to make your robot working! 
- 
-Book Errata Corrige (CH 10, p. 297): Refer to this drawing to connect in the right way the ground pin of the ultrasonic range finder.
