Sunbot Swarm Test 2

Laser cut bodies made for more stability, but also a but more of a boring performance than the crazy garbage bots (version 1).

Findings/limitations:

-In good light, they are pretty still. Some minor self-adjustments.
-Some anomalies, if one sensor loses light the bots begin to turn, turning may cause the other sensor to lose light as well and send it driving in wrong direction all together.
-Cardboard chassis are not quite stable enough, wheels on some are bowing. Need to replace with acrylic
-Unclear how or if IR communication is effecting behavior.
-Need to test in a more complicated lighting condition.
