Here is how our 8-wheel set up articulates over the bump. This is just our mock-up frame.
Looks fantastic. Where is the bottom of the bumper in relation to this frame? Great design.
How well does it turn?
Very Neat design. Any vids of it in action. I wish we had the time to build one of these, maybe 3
Yes I am also curious on how well it turns.
I notice your robot was mainly engineered to deal with the bump. . . however what kind of kicking mechanism (if there is one) are you going to use?
Otherwise this is a fantastic design other than the compromise of maneuverability.
There is a link to video below the picture. The bumper will attach to a bar just above the cut off the picture on top. As for the kicker, I’m not going to throw everything out there just yet. I still have 3 weeks to mess with you guys.
