Snake Vision Robot using two MLX90614 No Contact Temperature Modules

So, what I have is two MLX90614ESF Human Body Infrared Temperature Non-Contact Temperature sensors from IC Station. - These sensors use the I2C bus, what I am doing is using a multiplexer and switching between the two sensors pretty fast. These sensors are very sensitive to changes in temperature (Just like Snakes) The rapid change from one sensor to the other, could be like changing the of the lens snakes do. (Could be? well it sounds good anyway.) The sensors are set up at about a 45 degree angle from each other. If both sensors are the same the robot moves forward, if either of the sensors are different - the robot moves in the direction of the higher sensor reading (Moving toward the heat.) The robot build is pretty simple, so let’s get into it.”
