School project tank robot
December 17, 2009
To finish my education i have decided to make a tank robot as my project. But i cant afford it to cost to much, as i am not sure how much time i will use on it when i am done. And if i decide to spend more time on my robot, i realy want it to be able to drive around outside. (more fun)
First problem i have runed into is, damm tracked based chassis cost alot. And most of them can only be used indoors. Any1 know some good cheap track based chassis that dont cost to much? And some motors/gearbox.
I live in Denmark (Aarhus). But at the time, i dont know any shops, that sells robot parts.
In my project i shall build all the electronics my self. And i have deciede to start out with building a robot that can drive around by it self, and avoid obstacles.
I am thinking of using either Led's with photo diodes/transistors, or maybe infra red. Not sure what is best. As i where told by a friend that they dont cost to much, and still should be very good to use.
Hope that there are some1 out there, that can help me.
