Hi Guys, I (4mem8) thought I would put up some photo's of a weekend project making a robotic base. This project would be a good exercise for members and others in constructing a simple robotic base. The base is constructed of alloy, the wheels from an R/C toy and casters which were lying around, some parts have to be made. Motors and motor drivers will vary depending on what you have or install. This is for the basic frame only. I have included the finished robotic base photo. The rest of the details on how to build it will follow underneath if you follow the links, The whole project is to much to upload here so I have put links to my web page for the tutorial. Update: as of writing this project has now not turned into a weekend project, I got carried away and has turned out to be quite a large project.

Again, wow! I really appreciate the walkthrough through the whole project.

Very nice work!

Just as an FYI, the "next" links from page to page don't seem to work...
