Project Status

13/04/2016
  • Calibrated motor controllers and did some basic testing… it drives again!
  • Looked at using a 3D R/C FPV setup for first person 3D vision!
22/01/2016
  • 2x 2200MaH 22.2V Lithium Polymer “Flysky” batteries installed into chassis
  • The bot needs some calibration to fix mismatches between left and right channels
24/09/2015
  • 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 :) :)
Historical
  • Original “SubKor” chassis built/donated by Damien to the CCHS. Will be used as a platform for the CCHS Mascot bot.
