    We built this bot for the FIRST Competition - This will explain a lot (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnGfbGzEFrM)


     We plan on harvesting balls and using the belts to tranport the balls up to the pistion, after that I hope to pin other bots and launch then in to there trailer.  Let me know what you think of our desgin.

More Pictures here and there.

We went with Ackermann steering to have better control of the bot, we usually use tank drive.

First you have to explain the "first" competition.


You harvested lotsa "ehhhms". Now I all I can do is make fun of the name. I won't. 

Welcome to LMR nonetheless!

Although we often harrass people to include video, most of us do have reasonable attention spans and would like to actually read about your robot. Why is it here, how did you come up with the idea etc. More info = more stars!

Despite all the nice titles and music it doesn't apear to do much?

What type of circuit are you using? Will it be able to move in the future as it weaves stuff automaticly? I would put some IR and Sonic sensors on it so it could move around the house while it makes stuff. :D
what, no description whatsoever?
