In paralell with Pingubot developement race, was the arduino based bot. I liked better this one, since the Pingubot, except for the programming, had almost everything in its place mainly due to the integrated sensor bar and driver for motors.

Arduino has been a great platform for robotics and micro bots. Since it's open source, a lot of clones / mods based on it have flourished over the last 5 years. Main advantage is that code can be or mostly fully reused and Arduino's greatest asset is it's comunity and the great amount of shared work and code you can find on the Internet.
One of these is pinguino. While arduino is AVR microcontrolled based, pinguino is PIC based.
