Re: Thunder Down Under Robot Animation

Looks great! Its a nice advantage to be able to go over and under.

Only one thing though, when you go over the bump, those tracks aren't going to stay rigid like they do in the animation, and thus probably wouldn't make it over the bump that easily. But, I assume you already worked that bit out and the animation is just a rough representation.

Re: Thunder Down Under Robot Animation

Very nice. I want to know how the treads work out for you guys, considering they're not something you see on every robot.

Re: Thunder Down Under Robot Animation

Sorry for the confusion, this was a first draft of our robot, the current design is a bit different. Hopefully, we will get a new animation (with our new design) up today.

Re: Thunder Down Under Robot Animation

I think we have actually dropped the tracks and going over the bumps. We're going for a two wheel drive in the middle with casters on the ends.

Thanks,

We have used that style of drive every year but '09 ($@#$@#$@#$@# provided wheels), but it seems that our drivers haven't had much trouble. Whenever I try driving a tank drive robot, I fail, so I don't know they do it.
I dont know if this is feasible, but I was maybe thinking have even a third joystick, controlling forward/back motion, which powers on both of the motors for easy driving.
