JORGEroamer Tri-Wheel Robot
JORGEroamer is a modified A-Robot from Arrick Robotics. A sturdy and practical platform, this tri-wheel robot affords a unique chassis and steering system. The front wheel motor drive runs forward and reverse while steering is accommodated by the two rear wheels via a center mounted servo. The result is an efficient platform that is easy on the batteries. These vids show JORGEroamer loaded with fairly simple wandering code using whiskers and later revised to employe a bump plate. This robot is truly a joy to work with. To date, I've modified JORGEroamer with a second level, touch sensor system and, of course, custom paint job. The first vid shows his early life as a roamer. His last vid shows that JORGEroamer has finally figured out how to find his way to his bedroom. I've got plans for this little bot just as soon as I can find more time to play. Thanks to Roger Arrick for offering such a cool kit.
