In some shows on the Discovery Channel I have seen bomb disposal robots for soldiers on the battlefield. I wanted to know if I could build one in Lego; this is the result; I took the inspiration from the Dragon Racer bombdisposal robot.
About this creation
This creation has:
6 M motors
2 IR receivers
This the first tracked vehicle I made. The left side
and the right side are both powered individually, for steering purpose.
Top, you can see the motor for turning the arm, it sits btween the two batteryboxes
Front camera to see where you are going (isn't real, just saying ...)
The arm extended, ready for action
Rotating the arm
In action, little sand bump looked a bit weird so they decided to investigate it
Hmmmm, can you spot the cable? That calls for a closer look.
View for the arm mounted camera. They did the right thing by sending in the robot
