The aim of the CCHS Mascot project is to construct a robot that will bring together members of the CCHS to apply the nodebots and other interesting technologies on a larger scale. It's intended purpose is to become a mascot for the CCHS, consisting of a collection of contributions from members.
The robot should:
Incorporate a variety of projects our members are working on
Function reliably and be sturdy enough for the intended application
Be entertaining to watch and creative in appearance
Please make an edit here or send a message to the mailing list to let us know what you're working on :)
The chassis has had the 4x 100W 24v DC motors re-installed and the bot has been tested successfully with the existing dual-channel motor controller. It is very quick and maneuverable with 24v Lithium batteries. Discussed with Andy the possibilities of dual-cameras for FPV using Oculus Rift, sonar environmental mapping, a robotic arm attachment with electromagnet for lifting/dragging objects :) :)
