This is a simple robot design that has been developed to work with and the Shrimp (http://shrimping.it) Arduino and Raspberry Pi.
The aim of the project is to create a cheap robot that can be built in schools and can easily be customised by students. For this reason we have tried to design a simple chassis that can be build entirely from a single piece of wood/perspex.
Follow the development of the ShrimpBot at http://geekmoore.wordpress.com/ & http://www.youtube.com/geekmoore226
Changes from V1.5 to V1.6
1) Larger wheels, if they are turned 360Â° in opposite directions bot will turn 360Â°
2) Option to mount motors on outside
3) 2 internal supports added
This design is for 3.5mm materials.
An assembly guide is included in the files section.
