View Full Version : Questions regarding basic robot

10-10-2013, 02:46 PM
I am going to take part in a robotics racing event with a basic track (curved in some parts). The dimensions are 45x45x45.

1. is it possible to make my own wheels? The biggest I found for sale were only 10cm in diameter and i dont think these are big enough.

2. What is the best design for a racing event like this? is it possible to make a bot using only two wheels? Or is it better to use four?

The bot will be wired

1. Why not? but do you have the resources to make the treads on the rubber to have traction? At higher speeds you need more friction to stay on track specially when turning.

2. You can definitely make a two wheeled robot . Did you look at the link on the front page "Competition Robotics". You can take inspiration from that design.

Ouch, wired :(
