RAT V
Here's a new and improved RAT-V,
About this creation
Robust All Terrain Vehicle.

A simple platform, yet rugged an reliable enough to traverse over obstacles as high as the height of the triangular caterpillar tracks.A double motor driven system. Makes a great platform for future upgrades and additions. One which I already have in mind is to attach a CMU cam that enables the tracking rover to respond to commands and changes in the environment. Since the CMU cam upgrade is not yet available,I've added a robotic arm which enables RAT-V to grab and lift objects.

   The universal joints at the back of RAT-v uses the 3rd motor to manipulate the robotic arm.

   Here's a close up of the 3rd motor. Did some permanent modification to the motor cos it was damaged, hence replace all the internals with lighter, faster and a cheaper electric motor in the housing, a BAD move! It's even worse now cos the higher RPM doesn't provide enough torque for heavier objects.

Nicely done little bot. Good details on the running gear. Needs a menacing robotic arm to add to the flavour! Cheers! ~ Paul.
