Diary of a Student Engineer Part 4: Finishing Touches & Systematic Design

Adding the tire thread to the wheels

Systematic Design

  • The attachment must have a wheel — to aid steering in a tricky environment
  • The attachment must not effect the ultrasonic sensor — essentially this means it must be small and nimble enough to fit to the tumbler without being in the line of vision of the sensor, which is critical for the robot’s navigation.
  • The attachment must be able to be made of cardboard — this is a bit of a fail-safe spec, ideally I will be able to 3-D print the final attachment but in today’s conditions, who knows.
