Mindstorms NXT Forklift Truck
I've been working on building my contribution to the May 2012, NXTLog Competition. Part of my project needs a method to transport models of the large open top pallet type bins used to transport vegetables, such as potatoes, cabbages and pumpkins. I decided on a 'Line Following Forklift Truck' to do the job.
About this creation

The LEGO® Mindstorms NXT Forklift Truck shown above is compact, and quick and easy to build. You will need quite a number of extra LEGO® Technic Parts, in order to build it. At the end of the On-line Forklift Instructions on my Blog is the complete parts list. I suggest you head to BrickLink to purchase the extra parts.


The Mindstorms NXT Forklift Truck uses two NXT Motors to dive the Left and right front wheels. The Rear Wheels in the CAD Drawing of the forklift show above in red, are actually Rotacaster Omni-wheels. With the Rotacaster Omni-wheels fitted, the Forklift has a very small turning circle. In fact it can turn in it's own length.


The third NXT Motor drives the 2x Black Technic, Liftarms Thick (32348), which raise and lower the Forklift's Yellow Forks shown at the front. At the end of the 2x Black Technic, Liftarms is the Latching Mechanism that grips hold of the Vegetable Bin, stopping it sliding off the forks during transportation.
