Projects 2018

Below is a list of the available robot chassis and ideas that were mentioned during the meeting at the end of the beginners session on the 26th of April.

The ticks below state that the task needs to be done to make the robot work, no tick means the work has already been completed.

However you may consider creating a different robot! Most parts can be printed using our 3D printer, take a look at for ideas etc.

Some of the robot pictures can be found

If you would like to share ideas or need advice, contact Steve at

Robot Name Description Hardware Software
Scutter Rowen’s Project
Henry Hoover Bot This is an Ardunio contolled Henry Hoover robot created for remote control and semi autonomous. This will be created from scratch.
Rocky This is a 3 wheel drive electric quad bike chassis, this will need the electronics updated and code created for autonomy and remote control.
Granny Gadget All hardware is done, advanced knowledge of coding is needed for GPS control of robot.
Pioneer All hardware is done, only programming is needed to allow the robot to solve mazes and act intelligently.
Blackbot and Glove Hardware has been done but needs tidying, code is then needed for the glove and the robot.
Tangerine Bot Hardware has been done, this only needs programming.
Roffi This is a 3d printed, legged robot, this will need coding.
Sensor Board All hardware has been done, only programming is needed to join all the sensors.
Mini Infinity Hardware and software needed for mini robot wars robot.
Robot Wars Mini League
Remote Control Cars Hardware needs updating and software needs to be created.
Valiants Hardware has been done, more advanced features can be programmed such as XBees communication and infrared. So the Valiants can communicate between each other.
