Motors Chassis shout outs: Many props William and Jane Fujimoto for their input! I'd like to give a shout out to my students from the VVMS Afterschool Robotics Activity who have added their own tweaks and improvements! Props to Nicky Ringland for developing the chassis to fully utilize the HC-SR04 Ultrasonic-Rangefinder!
