Robotics NXT Robot [RoboCup Physical Rescue] OMG ITS GERRARD

Post by Gerrard on Mon Feb 18, 2013 4:19 am

Wow! It's been so long since i've posted on this forum. I sincerely miss the many years ago when I was on here 24/7 eager to reply and converse with my fellow CABGers. I enrolled in a Robotics course this year at my school and at the moment, we are currently building robots to try and compete in Robocup, which will be held in Eindhoven later this Summer.

I will be doing the Physical rescue challenge where my Robot must make it's way around obstacles, save "patients," and lift a soda can on top of some sort of elevated structure. I have only been building the robot for two weeks, so it's in the early stages right now.

Anyways I have to admit that many of the building techniques I am using and will use can be credited to the amazing builders, and helpful information I received while being an active participant on these forums many years ago. Just want to give another "hello" to all my fellow builders out there!

Feel free to help me out on my journey! I will be posting updates on my robot, the pictures below are just rough outlines/models for what the finished design will look like. Thanks! Gerrard.

(Also shoutout to all the people still active on this forum when I was active as well, "Rook, the legend who helped me become the builder I am today Wow this thing looks, Tac, Rubbah, Jedi Joe, Troopa, Pineapple, PhiMa, and a lot more)

Gerrard, isn't that avatar from Winter '09? Razz Using those Technic parts is much better than using bricks due to stability.

Indeed it is! Too lazy to change it though! Razz

Sorry for putting it in the wrong area, totally forgot about the WIP section. Nice to see some familiar faces though, i'll make sure to keep you all updated!

Very cool, I am on the robotics team at my school, but sadly we do not use Lego. Best of luck and I look forward to seeing what you you make.
