LEGO Robot Examples

This is a simple Rover Robot chassis, which can be used to attach various tools to.  These tools can be used for example to pickup, move or otherwise manipulate objects.  The model uses tracks and its design ensures that the Rover will drive a fairly straight line.  Further because of its wide ‘wheel base’ it is extremely stable so it can accommodate larger and taller attachments.

Here are also some sample attachments for the model:

This is a simple Fork Lift Robot chassis, which can be used to lift various tools to. This chassis can easily be expanded with either one or two light sensors. In addition it maybe fun to add a touch sensor or even a ultra sonic sensor to locate the item to be lifted. This chassis is predominantly used to demonstrate and explain how to convert rotating power to a lifting motion (hence the forklift). I have also used this chassis in class to demonstrate how various turning (rotation) algorithms may work as to create well controlled turns of a robot.
