Aberystwyth Robotics Club

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 www.thingiverse.com for ideas etc.

Some of the robot pictures can be found https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B56l4ti1lC2oM1l3NElDWjdIY1U
