Snow Crawler

Snow Crawler

Hardware

This has two main parts (the front and the back) on the front there is the PF battery box, front driving motor, and the steering motor along with PF LED lights. On the back section there is the back driving motor and the NXT. The two parts are connected by one axle, which stays in surprisingly well.

Program

The program was pretty simple. I used ROBOTC again. The program uses the PSP-NX-V3 to control the driving. Right joystick controls the drive motors and the left joystick controls the steering.

You can download the program here (.Zip)(driver is included and has to be in the same folder)

Got some new Lego related items for Christmas – both are great

presents

Been working on building a snow crawler over break – need to get another set of tank treads. Needs a bit of work – especially with the steering connection. Using some part from my new Power Functions kit I got for Christmas.
