Roger Bot

via Hackster.io

The design concept of Roger Bot is based on two main features. The robotic arm functions and the the rover maneuverability functions. In addition to this, several sensors have been installed on the rover to retrieve sensory data and display them upon request on a LCD display. All the parts were designed using CATIA V5 software and exported as STL files and printed on a 3D printer.

Roger Bot is designed for indoors and will not be able to handle bumpy and crooked grounds although it performs well on smooth flat surfaces. This is a downfall on the drive capabilities for now and I hope to address this in the future with your input. It has a tripod style wheel arrangement with ample width between the back two wheels so that mild to intense robotic arm movements will not topple Roger Bot over. The three supports with rolling ball wheels on the underbelly of the rover acts as an additional support for the robot arm on the rover.
