GIRC Robot Preliminary External Design

I’m still attempting to integrate the servo command sketch with the flash communication sketch, but I figure it’s time to start thinking about the external design of the robot. I plan to use a laser cutter on thin wood, with tabs and slots so that everything will fit together.

Anyhow, here are some more pictures. Bear in mind that I intend to make the actual robot about half the size of the prototype.

Side view:

There will have to be holes for the wheel axles of course.

Top View:

The lid and top will have to be cut at an angle or else the lid won’t sit properly. I hope a laser cutter can do that!

Undercarriage:

There will have to be bolt holes for the caster. The hole in the rear is for the LDR to peep through as it reads screen flashes.

Front view:

Rather barren and impersonal. I’m thinking there should be an access hole to attach sensors and LEDs to the front.

Not shown: the interior with compartments for the servos, battery, and mini breadboard.
