NXTLOG 5,000 Winner 2008

Hi all,

I was fortunate to be chosen as NXTLog's 5000 winner for my Mars Rover and Lander. My project was rushed and ultimately didnt satisfy my original plans due to a factors e.g. lack of parts and design knowledge. Also its cost alot to purchase the right parts!



A short video clip of my Rover is below:-

Here's some close up pics of the rover.





My project has continued and is the build stage. So far plans are to have:-

  • Rocker-Bogie Suspension
  • 6 wheel drive and steering
  • Solar Power to power certain rover functions
  • Video camera
  • 1x NXT, 8x small PF, 8xServo, Solar Powered PF, Multiple Sensors and maybe 1xRCX depending on weight.
I hope to have a test model within the next month.

Hope you like the blog, let me know if you are interested in the same thing!
